State lawmakers are closing in on 100 days without an approved spending plan

Pennsylvania state budget

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Supporters of Gov. Tom Wolf's plan to increase the personal income tax and levy a tax on natural gas extracted from the state rallied Wednesday morning in Harrisburg ahead of planned vote.

State lawmakers have failed to reach an agreement on a budget for more than three months. Pennsylvania's Democratic governor and Republican lawmakers are at odds over tax increases and spending cuts.

Wolf has proposed raising the state's personal income tax from 3.07 percent to 3.57 percent and enacting a natural gas severance tax.

Supporters rallied the Capital Rotunda Wednesday ahead of an expected vote by the House.
