Pa Republicans Challenge Corbetts Budget Vetoes

07.24.14 | Terry Diener

Republicans who control the Senate have hired outside counsel to decide whether -- or even how -- to challenge Corbett's veto of roughly $7.2 million in legislative earmarks in a budget-related bill called the fiscal code. The code is often described as an instruction manual for how certain funds should be allocated. From the moment Corbett announced that and other vetoes on July 10, Senate Republicans have maintained that striking lines from the fiscal code is not just unprecedented - but possibly unconstitutional.
