House puts off vote on $28.3 billion Pa. budget

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A vote on whether to approve a $28.3 billion state budget plan by Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives will have to wait until at least Wednesday.

Representatives were scheduled to vote Tuesday to send the GOP-crafted bill to the Senate, but the House adjourned without taking it up.

House GOP spokesman Steve Miskin says leaders decided to postpone the vote until Wednesday so lawmakers can get “a fresh start” on the expected debate.

House rules require a 24-hour waiting period after bills are amended, as the budget bill was Monday. That delayed a Tuesday vote until at least late afternoon.
