Gov. Wolf’s Budget Plan Renews Battles On Natural Gas, Minimum Wage « CBS Pittsburgh

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s forthcoming budget plan will rely on improving tax collections and a Marcellus Shale natural gas tax to put more money into Pennsylvania’s public schools, skills training, opioid-addiction prevention and social services.

Wolf said he’d launch new product lines at the Lottery to raise $150 million for senior programs, including games based on virtual sports and keno and an iLottery system allowing players to access games through mobile devices.

And he said it was time to raise the state’s minimum wage to $12 an hour to keep Pennsylvania in step with 32 other states, including all our neighbors.
