Scarnati: “The need to govern is much higher in our chamber”

Scarnati: “The need to govern is much higher in our chamber”

The Pennsylvania Senate on Thursday morning narrowly passed and sent to the House a revenue package to balance the FY 2017-2018 spending plan and close out the FY 2016-2017 deficit.

 

While narrowly passing the chamber by a 26-24 margin, the revenue package cobbled together by the Senate with a mix of Republican and Democratic support was said to be a product of a chamber aimed at leading the state’s lawmaking bodies through a nearly month-long standoff on how to fund two budgets that are roughly $2.2 billion out of balance.

Senate sets sea-change revenue proposal, budget implementation bills for final passage

The Pennsylvania Senate Wednesday night loaded bills that will provide for the substantial majority of a $2.2 billion revenue package needed to balance the current and just previously concluded fiscal year’s budgets and provide for the implementation of the budget through specific code bills.
