Pennsylvania’s $28.4 billion budget, which Governor Tom Corbett signed into law on Sunday, does not include the $2 billion budget House Republicans had proposed, according to a report from our sister site, Better Roads [3].

The bill lacked support from the full House, largely due to the proposed increase in wholesale fuel taxes.

The bill, which is about $500 million less per year than a plan that passed the Senate in early June, did not gain support from the full Senate either.
