Conference Committee Dissolves

Today House Appropriations Chairman Evans announced the Conference Committee will disband until further notice. Apparently Rep. Evans along with Sen. Pileggi will meet with Governor Rendell’s administration beginning tomorrow to try to begin to hammer out a budget agreement. If progress begins to be made in negotiations, then the committee may be called back together to finalize the arrangement. Governor Rendell also announced that he would potentially ask for SB850 so he can sign prior to Monday to allow state workers to receive their paychecks as soon as possible. It still appears that layoffs of state workers will begin as soon as payroll is resumed per what Governor Rendell announced in his press conference yesterday.

In the morning session of the Conference Committee barely any progress seems to have been made. It began much like yesterday ended with more disagreement over procedural and organizational flow of how the committee would move forward.
