PA Senate Passes Budget;
House in Session Right Now

The State Senate has passed a $29.1 billion spending plan for the new fiscal year that starts at midnight.

The plan cuts business taxes and calls for about $950 million more in spending, primarily for public schools, pension obligations, health care for the poor and social safety-net programs.

But Democrats say money for some of the line items isn’t even there.

As of 8 p.m. the House is expected to vote on the budget later tonight.
