Pennsylvania budget negotiations continue between Wolf, GOP


HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Wolf and legislative leaders are meeting for the second straight day in hopes of solving the state's budget impasse.

The sides have been meeting behind closed doors Thursday for more than an hour.

The session is expected to focus on education funding and proposed cuts to public sector pensions.

Pennsylvania is midway through its second month without a budget in place.

Wolf, a Democrat, wants more funding to plug a budget deficit and add money for schools and human services.

He vetoed a Republican-penned spending plan that passed with no Democratic votes.
