The biggest question around the state Capitol in Harrisburg right now is “did he or didn’t he”?
We are talking about Gov. Josh Shapiro and whether he agreed to a deal with Senate Republicans that included $100 million in funding for “lifeline scholarships” or the Pennsylvania Award for Student Success (PASS) program in the $45.5 million plan.
The Senate GOP leadership says yes, Shapiro reneged on his word.
The governor says he never agreed to such a deal.
Who’s right? We want to know what you think.
Our unscientific poll is open until midnight on Monday.
