Thompson: Governor Wolf’s Washington Fundraising Trip in Poor Taste During 112th Day of Pennsylvania Budget Impasse
Washington, DC – With the Pennsylvania state budget impasse standing at 112 days, school districts struggling to make ends meet and social service programs running low on funding, Gov. Tom Wolf traveled to Washington, D.C. today to raise campaign funds. In response, U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) issued the following statement: “Pennsylvania has been 112 days without a budget, yet today, Gov.
