So far, we’re in pretty good shape

I was back in the District today. After a Blair Chamber Breakfast, I had the Constitutional Convention workshop at Penn State Altoona.  We had a small, but interested crowd with folks from Blair and Huntingdon Counties.  I had to do a little shopping this afternoon for the Christmas Open House tomorrow.  It’s from 10:00 to 2:00 at the Hollidaysburg Office, and everyone is welcome.  At the capitol today, the Budget Secretary held his mid-year report.  As one news service said, it sounded like an election year report, with everything going well after three years of hard work by the administration.  Revenues are coming in better this year, slightly ahead of projections.  A big question is if the state makes what was budgeted on gambling revenues.  Looks like the Governor won’t be asking for large increases in spending next year, or higher sales or income taxes.  So far, we’re in pretty good shape.
