HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf will release his 2016-17 budget plan even as he fights to get his major priorities into this year's budget.

Major portions of the current budget remain in limbo after a fight with the Republican-controlled Legislature. Disagreements over school spending, taxes and Republican policy priorities could bleed into deliberations over a new budget.

The new budget year starts July 1.

Wolf is the first governor in modern Pennsylvania history to come to this point with substantial portions of the budget for the current fiscal year still in limbo.

He has made some revelations about what he will propose Tuesday, including an additional $200 million for public school instruction and operations and another $60 million for pre-kindergarten programs for children of low-income parents.
