Update (6:42 PM): It sounds as though the new bill would do the following:
  • Keep Governor Rendell's requested $300 million increase for basic education
  • Eliminate taxes on small games of chance, cigars, smokeless tobacco, and natural gas
  • Institute "programmatic" cuts to the Department of Public Welfare's budget totaling about $110 million
