$29.1 billion budget plan heads for Senate floor vote

A $29.1 billion spending plan passed the Senate Appropriations Committee Sunday night along a party-line vote. The plan encompasses a compromise spending plan between House and Senate Republican leadership.

The plan, according to spreadsheets and member comments, is balanced by a mix of one-time fund transfers, escheats reform, money from non-surface impact oil and gas lease drilling, Philadelphia casino licenses, a fix to the bank shares tax, ending the Commonwealth’s share of the charter school pension “double-dip,” the federal approval of the Healthy PA plan, and transfers from the Enhanced Revenue Collections Account.
