Bizzarro ‘optimistic’ on Pa. budget deadline

Local News

Just four days away from the deadline for a state budget, but will we have it by then?

Rep. Ryan Bizzarro said negotiations are continuing this week for the next couple of days as the deadline for the budget is Thursday.

Bizzarro said legislators agree it was unacceptable there was nearly a 10-month budget impasse last year and he said there can’t be another this year.

“So anything can happen,” Bizzarro said. “I am still very optimistic that we are going to get a budget on time. Just going to hammer out these next couple days and hope for the best in these negotiations.”

Republican legislators from the Erie area could not be reached for comment regarding the budget.
