(Harrisburg) -- An income tax incentive to encourage companies to hire in Pennsylvania is on its way to Gov. Tom Corbett's desk following passage in both chambers of the Legislature.

The House voted 111-to-80 late Wednesday in favor of the Promote Employment Across Pennsylvania program, which would let employers retain state income tax money related to new hires.

Corbett's office says he's not sure if he'll sign the measure, which was passed about six weeks after it was first introduced.

The Senate vote earlier in the day was 33 to 16.
