Governor Tom Wolf is releasing his fourth budget proposal Tuesday.
It will lay out his preferences for spending and funding for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
The plan—and reception from republicans—isn’t expected to be quite as contentious as in past years, because negotiations are beginning as Wolf and many other state lawmakers are running for reelection, or for higher office.
That’s significant, because the budget impasses that have lately plagued Pennsylvania typically aren’t great for poll numbers. Wolf—and other candidates—stand to gain if everyone agrees.
