(Harrisburg) - Lawmakers say they probably won't get the budget done by Monday night, which means that an unbalanced spending plan will automatically become law unless Governor Tom Wolf vetoes all or part of it. The budget was due June 30. The House and Senate sent a spending plan to Wolf's desk that day, but still haven't found the revenue to balance it. Republican leaders said Sunday night that they'd sent a compromise plan to Wolf that afternoon, but he rejected it. Senate GOP Leader Jake Corman didn't give many details on the revenue proposal Wolf got, but he did say it included a new tier of mini-casinos and expanded liquor sales to some degree. It didn't legalize video gaming terminals in bars, however. That's an option the House has strongly favored. "This isn't perfect, by any stretch," Corman said of the plan. "But if that's what we can get votes for, that's what we should do." However, Corman said Wolf didn't think the plan included enough real, recurring revenue.
