    As Pennsylvania's state budget stalemate drags through a fourth month, the talk of the Capitol has drifted to when the first school district could run out of cash and shut its doors.

    Oct 3, 2015 | Pocono Record

    The utter breakdown in state budget negotiations in Pennsylvania didn't happen overnight, but was produced by diametrically opposed policy positions and fueled by tough rhetoric among people elected specifically to work together.
