State Rep. Steve McCarter, D-Montgomery, issued the following statement in response to the Republican attempt to pass a stopgap budget rather than negotiate a real budget with Democratic leadership and Gov. Tom Wolf:
“Republican leadership again has called members of the House back to Harrisburg for another game of political showmanship. Pennsylvanians deserve a quality budget that funds our education system and human services, but instead all we get are half-measures and ploys that will only further exacerbate Pennsylvania’s deficit and provide no relief to our citizens.
