Harrisburg, PA (AP) — A no-new-taxes $25.8 billion budget is before Gov. Tom Wolf after winning speedy approval in the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Legislature.
Also sent to the Democratic governor Thursday was legislation to distribute about $2.6 billion in federal coronavirus aid.
Wolf is expected to sign both.
The budget bill carries full-year money for public schools and state-supported universities.
It funds much of the rest of the state’s operating budget lines only through Nov. 30.
About half of the $2.6 billion in federal emergency aid will go to counties, nursing homes and other programs for older adults.
