While a General Appropriations bill might meet the June 30 deadline, it is increasingly likely that the ancillary bills needed to implement it may not.
Senate leadership has indicated it may take longer to get the other, necessary pieces in place that allow the actual budget to be implemented.
“I think, overall, it’s a good budget,” said Senate Appropriations Committee Majority Chairman Jake Corman (R-Centre). “We’ll have some changes, obviously. We don’t have the votes to create $385 million worth of liquor revenue…so we’ll have to close that gap another way.”
