They like what they see in his budget which was unveiled yesterday in Harrisburg.

House Speaker Mike Turzai says the budget plan displays a "reality check" and expects budget talks will move in a positive direction.
          
The cost-cutting measure contains no new taxes and relies heavily on government downsizing to offset a $3 billion deficit.

Majority Leader Dave Reed claims it's a "180 degree turn for the governor." Reed says it's a step in the right direction.

The governor wants to raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour and impose a $25 dollar per-person fee on small towns that rely on the state police for protection.
