Public school districts in Pennsylvania have started borrowing money to help cushion the blow from a state budget impasse.
Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, in a statement, said some districts, and intermediate units that oversee them, borrowed more than $340 million.
“At least 28 additional districts and two more intermediate units will be forced to borrow an estimated total of $122 million in October,” he said.
