Major players in Pennsylvania’s budget stalemate were on the road Monday trying to sell their message to the Commonwealth’s body politic before House members return to voting session on Tuesday.
The governor had a busy morning in Western Pennsylvania where he began the day giving remarks at the Pittsburgh Technology Council Breakfast Briefing Program.
He then stayed in Pittsburgh where he gave remarks at the VFW national convention.
By noon, Gov. Wolf was speaking at Big Beaver Elementary School in Darlington, Beaver County. That stop was part of his continuing “Schools That Teach Tour,” which is the governor’s ongoing push for his education funding plan.
It was that third stop that was met with Republican reaction in a joint statement from Representatives Jim Christiana (R-Beaver) and Jim Marshall (R-Beaver), who organized a rally held to counter Gov. Wolf’s trip to the area.
