Pa Senate Passes No Tax Hike Budget — Matt Brouilette of Commonwealth Foundation tweeted about an hour ago that the Pennsylvania Senate has overwhelmingly passed a $30.3 billion no-tax hike budget that could be on Gov. Wolf’s desk tonight (Dec. 23). The bill was HB 1460 which was passed by the House on Dec. 8 and and was prime sponsored by Springfield’s Bill Adolph (R-165) . Today’s Senate vote was 33-17.
Matt notes that if Wolf vetoes it it’s $0 for schools. If he signs it it is “record high funding.”
Of course, if he did this back in June when the legislature passed its initial budget it would have saved a lot of aggravation for a lot of people.
