Budget on his desk, Corbett has a lot to consider

July 5, 2014
Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett isn't saying what he'll do with a no-new-taxes budget bill sitting on his desk.

It landed on Corbett's desk July 1, giving him 10 days to sign it, veto the entire thing or veto certain objectionable spending items before it becomes law.

He's got a lot to think about after a roller-coaster legislative session for Republicans who control the Legislature.

Corbett's budget secretary, Charles Zogby, says the Republican governor is considering whether the spending plan takes too many risks to balance and whether it's acceptable without some sort of relief from rising pension costs.

Corbett had wanted lawmakers to approve pension legislation first. But House Republican Whip Stan Saylor suggests that it's up to Corbett to persuade more lawmakers to support the pension bill he wants.
