PA politicians get down to 'brass tacks' of filling a state budget hole today

09.11.17 | Terry Diener

State lawmakers are returning to the capital in Harrisburg for the first time in seven weeks with a fiscal emergency on their hands.

At issue is how to come up with the money to keep state agencies, programs, schools and institutions funded at levels supported overwhelmingly by Republican and Democratic lawmakers in a $32 billion spending agreement.

A vote is expected this week on the latest plan, pushed by a group of House Republicans.

If it fails, the next step is unclear for the House.
