After two days with an underfunded state budget, lawmakers have approved a revenue plan to balance the $31.5 billion spending bill.
Governor Tom Wolf has signed it Wednesday evening, putting an end to the 2016/17 budget process.
Wolf said the action saved the commonwealth from a repeat of last year’s budget debacle.
“Today’s passage of a revenue package means we avoid another lengthy impasse,” he said in an official statement. “Our budget is balanced this year, and we have greatly reduced the budget’s structural deficit.”
