QUARTERLY LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
SEPTEMBER 2017

O

n June 30, 2017, the General
Assembly approved a nearly
$32B spending plan. The
plan eventually became law
without Governor Tom Wolf 's signature.
What the legislature has yet to accomplish,
nearly three months later, is approval of
a plan to raise the revenue for the state's
budget. Most recently, the Senate rejected
a proposal passed by House Republicans
that omitted new taxes in favor of a series
of one-time special fund transfers to the
General Fund. The House bill differs
from a previously passed Senate plan that,
among other things, levies additional taxes

on natural gas producers, a proposal that
lacks support in the House.
To reach a compromise between the two
plans, the Senate has proposed that both
chambers form a conference committee
tasked with negotiating a deal for the
Governor's desk. Considering the ongoing
uncertainty surrounding this year's budget, the rating agency Standard and Poor's
recently downgraded the commonwealth's
credit rating from AA- to A+.
