Unorthodox partial stopgap budget expected to move this week
The Pennsylvania General Assembly is expected to pass a partial budget for the 2020-21 fiscal year that will level-fund most state operations and line items for five months beginning July 1. Despite taking a backseat to COVID-related legislation, legislators and Gov. Tom Wolf have been working together on the stopgap budget in order to have it enacted before the June 30 constitutional deadline. The legislature is expected to return to Harrisburg in the fall – once there is a better understanding of the financial fallout from the coronavirus – to approve a spending plan for the final seven months of the fiscal year. As of now, the PAFP’s Residency Expansion Program, which is funded through the Primary Health Care Practitioner line item within the Dept. of Health, will remain flat-funded for at least five months.
