  1. GOP confronts no-tax packageRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Sep 18 | Lewistown Sentinel

    The Pennsylvania Senate returned to Harrisburg on Monday, Day 80 of an increasingly ugly budget stalemate, as senators began picking apart the House's no-new-taxes plan and raising questions about whether huge parts of it are realistic. The Senate's Republican majority was divided over going along with the House's GOP-penned plan, as lawmakers grapple with how to resolve state government's largest cash shortfall since the recession, now a projected $2.2 billion gap in a $32 billion budget.

    Aug 20, 2017 | Lewistown Sentinel

    Top state officials are warning that Pennsylvania's deficit-strapped government is rapidly approaching a more severe stage in its seven-week-old budget stalemate, one in which Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf may have to start deciding which bills to pay and which to postpone. Taxes are still being collected and checks are being cut by the Pennsylvania Treasury under a nearly $32 billion budget bill that lawmakers approved June 30, the day before the current fiscal year began.

  13. Pa. legislature struggles to protect funds during budget stalemateRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 6, 2017 | Lewistown Sentinel

    Tax increase proposals drew most of the attention when the state Senate approved a package of legislation late last month designed to bring Pennsylvania's budget stalemate to an end, but lawmakers also tacked on a provision that would give them more leverage during any future standoff with the governor. The bill that passed comfortably and was sent over to the House would enshrine into law the power to take the type of actions made by lawmakers during a standoff two years ago, by giving them explicit power to borrow money to pay salary, benefits and bills if their reserves run dry during drawn-out budget negotiations.

    Jul 12, 2017 | Lewistown Sentinel

    Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf said Wednesday he was optimistic about getting a good budget agreement and that his administration was acting legally in waving through a budget that lacked the tax collections to sustain it for the entire fiscal year, the second time in two years. This year, however, is different than last year, when lawmakers remained in Harrisburg and negotiators hammered out a revenue deal within two days after an unbalanced budget bill became law.

    "I will show up for work at my Harrisburg office every day this summer to protest the lack of a 2017-18 state budget that's responsible, realistic and in the commonwealth's best interests for the future as well as the present." But don't hold your breath regarding such a prospect, despite the increasing evidence that next year's spending plan is not going to be responsible, not going to be realistic and not going to protect taxpayers from someday having to shoulder a big financial burden to return the commonwealth to a solid financial footing.
