The Pennsylvania House of Representatives is poised to approve a $28.3-billion state budget plan crafted by the Republican majority.
Representatives were expected to vote Tuesday to send the bill to the Senate but that vote was pushed back to today.
The proposal closely tracks what GOP Governor Tom Corbett proposed in February, but adds $10 million to give public schools an increase of $100-million in the fiscal year that starts July 1. It includes a business tax break worth more than $300-million, and smaller spending increases for other programs.
Democrats want a larger boost in education funding and a freeze on the business tax break, but their amendments were rejected on procedural grounds Monday.
