The PA Senate is set to consider this bill tomorrow, and appears poised to send it to Gov. Corbett.
Corbett has until Friday to either veto or sign the budget bill (if he does nothing, it will become law automatically). Since the Philly cigarette tax bill is budget related (similar to the pension bill Corbett wants enacted), since Corbett isn't pleased that the House GOP didn't approve or even consider the pension bill, and since Corbett is running for reelection (and is trailing in the polls), Corbett has some important decisions to make this week.
