It’s been a busy time in Harrisburg. State lawmakers are hoping negotiations on next year’s budget are wrapped up before the end of this week—and that means in the meantime, there are a lot of balls in the air.

On Thursday, Governor Wolf stopped by WITF for a live show produced by Keystone Crossroads, in partnership with the major public radio stations in Pennsylvania, and PA Post. He took questions on a number of topics, and in this episode, we’ve included some of the newsiest ones.

Hear what the governor has to say about budget-related issues, like negotiations on a higher minimum wage, upgrading voting machines, and deciding the fate of the General Assistance program. Plus, we’ll get into broader conversations, like his pitch to upgrade infrastructure.

The full conversation with Wolf ran a full hour and covered a lot more ground, so if you’re interested you can check out the recorded broadcast here.
