Pa. officials address state budget cuts, ‘rock snot’ discovered in the Delaware River Basin

    Good morning, Feeders, and happy post-Primary Day!

    We’ll have some primary follow-ups, but there are other fish to fry today, too.
    Peter Crimmins and Emma Lee are wrapping up an interview at Temple University. That story is in the works, but today, Peter will have more information about the Philadelphia Orchestra’s agreement with the American Federation of Musicians Pension Fund.

    Emma Jacobs and Dave Davies will have more information on yesterday’s announcement that 40 Philadelphia public schools could close in the next year. How will that affect taxes, and what about the district’s plan to raise private funds to help with costs?

    Carolyn Beeler is checking in with Pennsylvania’s Welfare Secretary Gary Alexander and Budget Secretary Charles Zogby on how state cuts are affecting some parts of the budget.

    And Lizz Fiedler will catch up with Bob Casey, who now has a clear Republican opponent for the U.S. Senate general election.

    And for the full list of primary results, check out our coverage from last night.
