A third of the Keystone State's lawmakers have returned their pay raises to the Pennsylvania treasury.
It comes the state's budget shortfall has worsened by $300 million in the last week alone. Gov James Rendell (D-PA) says that'll mean lay offs of state workers when the fiscal year begins July 1.
Pennsylvania lawmakers rushed to say they'd give up raises when things turned bad. Only 1-in-3 have returned their pay hikes for a grand total of $25,470.
The raise took effect on December 1.
