Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania state government has repaid a short-term $750 million line of credit that kept its main bank account from hitting zero this month.

Treasurer Joe Torsella’s office said Wednesday that state government repaid it after drawing the full amount.

He says the state hasn’t had to borrow that much so early in the fiscal year in 25 years as lawmakers struggle to plug a $2.2 billion hole nearly two months into the fiscal year.
