Smart Talk: G. Terry Madonna on the PA Budget

Written by WITF Staff | Jun 28, 2016 9:00 AM

The deadline with the state budget is approaching this Friday. Last year it took nine months for the budget process to wrap up. This time, Governor Tom Wolf and legislative leaders are optimistic their work will be done close to on time. There are signs that the mood is better this year among leaders with some compromises on the table.

On Wednesday's Smart Talk guest host Terry Madonna, Director of the Center for Politics and Public Affairs, Professor of Public Affairs, and Director of the Franklin and Marshall College Poll, is joined by Angela Couloumbis, reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Steve Esack, Harrisburg Correspondent for The Morning Call, to discuss the prospect of a budget process complete on time.
