Harrisburg, PA – With the state budget standoff now in its fourth month, Pennsylvania’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives narrowly passed another potential spending plan.

A bill brought to the House floor narrowly passed Tuesday night, 102-88, within a couple hours of being unveiled.

It is built around borrowing $1.5 billion and extending the state sales tax to purchases in online marketplaces to raise about $50 million.

The proposal now goes to the Senate and Governor Tom Wolf.
