Pennsylvania state lawmakers are trickling back into the Capitol for the final days of the state government’s fiscal year as budget negotiators try to produce a budget package that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf will sign.
The House was scheduled to convene Monday at 11 a.m. and the Senate at 1 p.m.
Leaders of the four legislative caucuses broke from a meeting just after midnight Sunday reporting no final agreements on a spending level or a tax package to close a deficit.
They say they’re inching closer to an agreement, and a House GOP spokesman says budget legislation could be unveiled in the coming hours after more closed-door discussion.
Funding for human services and public schools could be affected, depending on the spending level, while higher taxes on cigarettes are under discussion.
The 2016-17 fiscal year starts Friday.
