More than a week has passed since a Pennsylvania budget deal was announced, yet Franklin County's legislators say they remain in the dark about a lot of the details.
Among the unknowns is whether Scotland School for Veterans' Children will have its funding restored.
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell proposed closing the boarding school in his February budget address. Lawmakers failed to meet their June 30 budget deadline and never reached an agreement for Scotland School, leaving the buildings' doors shuttered and the students enrolled at different schools across the state.
On Monday afternoon, state Sen. Richard Alloway's chief of staff, Sally Kohr, said Alloway hadn't received information about Scotland School's funding. Alloway is a Republican who serves Franklin and Adams counties and a small part of York County.
State Rep. Rob Kauffman said he, too, had heard "nothing at all."
House Republicans did not support the budget's handshake agreement announced on Sept. 18. Rendell, a Democrat, said he wants the bills that make up the annual spending plan on his desk on Sunday.
