Legislature leaves Wolf with decision on budget he opposes

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Gov. Tom Wolf is facing a decision over what to with a last-ditch spending bill sent to him without the increase in public school aid he had sought.

House Speaker Mike Turzai formally signed the bill Thursday morning and sent it to the Democratic governor's desk. Wolf's office says no decision is likely before Monday.

Republicans are urging Wolf to sign it, and stop the borrowing, layoffs or service delays by school districts, counties and social services agencies struggling to get by without state aid.

Numerous questions remain about the bill, including the fate of legislation to authorize hundreds of millions of dollars for universities and colleges.
