In the budget he unveiled earlier this year, Mr. Wolf had proposed raising new dollars through a new tax on natural gas extraction and expanding the state’s 6 percent sales tax to services that are currently exempt.
Wolf rejected Republican plans that leaned more heavily on one-time cash infusions, and pressed Republicans to support a larger package of tax increases, top lawmakers say.
Top senators said tax increases under discussion involved basic cable service, movie tickets, bank profits, telephone service and electric service. Another element of a proposed budget deal, designed to save money, would give the state the option to shut down unprofitable wine and liquor stores and transfer the stock to a nearby beer distributor to be sold there.
