The Pennsylvania Senate will reconvene next week to get back to work on the state’s 2024 budget. A spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Joe Pittman says the voting session will begin Wednesday, August 30th at 1 p.m. The Senate was scheduled to return September 18th until the new session day was called. The House is still set to re-convene September 26th. The nearly 45-billion-dollar budget was adopted in early July but wasn’t signed into law by Governor Josh Shapiro until early August. Legislative authorization is still needed to approve spending on about 400-million dollars in both new and previous state programs.
