A Spokesman For The Pa House Says Lawmakers Will Have Questions About A Senate Plan To Close The Gap In The State Budget

07.28.17 | Terry Diener

House Republican spokesman Stephen Miskin says the Senate plan was "not shared, nor agreed to" by House leaders prior to passage, "so a review of what's actually in these bills is necessary." He says there's no timetable for the House to return to Harrisburg to consider the legislation.

The Senate plan includes tobacco money and new or higher taxes on Marcellus Shale drilling and consumers' utility bills to cover the $2.2 billion gap.
