Time Ticking for On-Time PA Budget

06.18.14 | FL News Team

 Governor Corbett has issued an ultimatum-- on the budget. He says lawmakers will not be allowed to leave town-- until the budget is balanced. No matter how long it takes.
  The session ends in a week and a half. The governor has posted on time budgets for 3 straight years-- but Corbett cautioned this budget-- may not make the deadline.
 The governor wants pension reform that would put new hires into a hybrid 401K plan. He also says if he's given the liquor reform he wants, he'll allow a tax on marcellus shale drilling that everyone else wants. He says the state has to raise cash to balance the budget.
