Governor Wolf, Republicans face impasse over budget shortfall

Pennsylvanians who pay attention to politics know that over the last several months, there has been gridlock in Congress over how to deal with a budget shortfall. One of the biggest issues in the budget impasse is how to deal with lack of funding to human services. One example of the effect of the shortfall is that agencies contracting with York County human services are not receiving any payments, though the problems are more widespread than just York County. According to some sources, these agencies are going to have to take out lines of credit, or possibly start cutting staff, to remain afloat.
