May 9, 2012

WALSTON — The chairman of the Young Township Board of Supervisors said officials will further explore issues pertaining to billing, bookkeeping and other items after a recent audit revealed some questions.

Senate’s cuts to Corbett’s budget offer some good news

May 9, 2012

BROOKVILLE — The Pennsylvania Senate’s vote to approve a $27.65 billion spending plan Wednesday indicates a more hopeful outcome for the state’s human services field.

The budget bill, which was approved on a vote of 39-8, restores around $500 million in cuts to education, social services and other areas proposed by Republican Gov. Tom Corbett in his $27.14 billion proposal.

The measure will now be sent to the state House.

“It’s good to see from my perspective that negotiations have at least begun,” Jefferson County Children & Youth Services Director Brian Mowrey said Wednesday.
