HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Kim Ward (R-39), Senate Majority Leader Joe Pittman (R-41) and Senate Appropriations Committee Chair Scott Martin (R-13) issued the following statement today on 2024-25 state budget negotiations:

“Our work to complete the 2024-25 state budget continues to progress. We are encouraged by the ongoing dialogue between the Senate, House and Governor.

“While it appears clear at this point that we will not have a full budget agreement which could be implemented by June 30, we are hopeful to reach a consensus very soon and avoid any negative impacts on the people of Pennsylvania. The Senate will recess today and return Monday, July 1, at 3 p.m.”
