Pennsylvania state budget deficit tops $1 billion It looks like Harrisburg is in for another long, drawn-out budget process as the state's 2009-10 budget deficit has swollen to more than $1 billion.
From Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The projected deficit for the fiscal year ending June 30 stood at $720 million a month ago. However, because the state collected $290 million less than anticipated in April, the total deficit is expected to be more than $1 billion, Sen. Jake Corman, R-Center, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said this morning.
