(Harrisburg) -- Governor Tom Wolf's budget plan relies heavily on $2 billion in cuts and savings, as well as a slew of new tax revenues the administration says will add up to about $1 billion. Like any initial plan, those numbers are estimates. Some GOP leaders in the legislature have already raised early concerns about the accuracy of Wolf's projections. Independent Fiscal Office director Matthew Knittel said some concerns might be valid. The IFO puts out a formal budget report in April, but Knittel said based on some cursory analysis, there are a few areas where revenues could definitely be inconsistent. One is the governor's proposed severance tax on natural gas drilling. Estimated at nearly $300 million, it's a significant part of the revenue package.
