State CapitolNegotiations continue over the details of a budget compromise announced a few weeks ago.

The State House approved a Liquor Privatization bill that is virtually identical to the bill vetoed by Governor Wolf in June. It is expected that this bill – House Bill 1690 – will be used to privatize liquor as part of the budget negotiations.

A similar tactic is underway in the State Senate on pensions in which extremists will attempt to phase out good pensions for public service workers.  Be prepared to Take Action on funding for schools, good pensions, privatization, raising the minimum wage and a fair and responsible budget.
