Reader Poll: Will the State Pass its Budget On Time?
With the June 30 deadline looming, and Gov. Corbett having promised state Republicans an on-time budget at their committee meeting over the weekend, the pressure is on for the GOP-controlled legislature to pass a budget for the Governor to sign before the week is up.
The FY 2012 budget passed last year June 29, an accomplishment which the Corbett administration has touted as being the product of Republican fiscal responsibility and leadership. Corbett has also pledged to prevent a tax hike for the second year running.
Keeping that in mind, and the fact that the Democrats have been blocked from participating in the debate, it seems likely that the FY 2013 budget is likely to pass and be ready for Corbett’s John Hancock.
Then again, it is the nature of politics to throw a wrench into the best-laid plans.
Many of you weighed in on last week’s poll and the results were clear: most of you believe the Supreme Court is going to reject Obamacare’s individual mandate.
By Friday we should know the outcome on both issues, but before the politicians and justices tell us, why don’t you tell us what you think, readers?
