HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf said Wednesday he was optimistic about getting a good budget agreement and that his administration was acting legally in waving through a budget that lacked the tax collections to sustain it for the entire fiscal year, the second time in two years. This year, however, is different than last year, when lawmakers remained in Harrisburg and negotiators hammered out a revenue deal within two days after an unbalanced budget bill became law. Lawmakers this week were sent home to their districts and officials had no progress toward a deal to report Wednesday, the 12th day of a budget stalemate.
