State budget vehicle continues advance

State budget vehicle continues advance

With little fanfare Monday afternoon the vehicle for the eventual state General Fund budget continued its advance through the legislative process, receiving second consideration in the House without amendment.

 

The bill—House Bill 218—sets state spending at FY 2015-2016 spending levels with total state appropriations ringing in at just over $33 billion.

 

The $29.45 billion General Fund spend number is far below the $32.3 billion General Fund spend number proposed by Gov. Tom Wolf in his February 7 budget address.
