Governor Tom Corbett is expected to make an announcement Thursday on the pending Pennsylvania state budget

If Governor Tom Corbett doesn't sign or veto the budget by Thursday it will automatically become state law.

Both sides are frustrated, and putting the blame on each other.

The governor has said he wants pension reform and liquor privatization before he puts his signature on this year's budget, but his fellow Republicans are asking him to sign it, and work on pension reform in the fall.

Democrats, on the other hand, want to see a natural gas tax be enacted to bring in some revenue.

No Democrats in the senate or the house voted in favor of the budget.

Both parties are still blaming  the other for the stall.
