- Congreso de Latinos Unidos, a social service agency in Philadelphia, said Friday it would cut afterschool programs for 330 students, furlough 11 employees, and cut pay for the rest starting Sept. 1 to make up for the projected loss of $30,000 a day in state aid. Other nonprofits have warned of similar belt-tightening if the impasse continues.
House Majority Leader Dave Reed (R., Indiana) said GOP leaders would seek next week to override portions of Gov. Wolf's veto this summer of their $30.1 billion budget plan. A veto override requires a two-thirds majority, which means the proposal would need Democratic support. Democrats said that was unlikely.
In a Philadelphia Daily News op-ed piece, Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.) likened the GOP's latest offer to boost education funding in return for public pension reform to a "pile of manure."
Wolf had no public appearances planned Friday or for the weekend.
Next round of budget talks: None scheduled.
