State budget impasse continues

The state’s 2016 budget remains unresolved. Six months of emergency funds for cash-strapped K-12 schools, counties and human services is being released after Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on Dec. 29 approved $23.4 billion of a $30.3 billion Republican budget.

Appropriation bills for Pitt and other non-preferred institutions still await action, which could come next week.

The fiscal year 2016 state budget impasse has stretched into its seventh month. A month from now, on Feb. 9, Wolf is scheduled to present his proposed budget for fiscal year 2017, which begins July 1.
