Governor Tom Corbett and leaders from many counties from around the Commonwealth are calling for the expansion of the pilot Human Services Block Grant Program to allow any county to opt in.

The pilot is designed to give counties more flexibility in using state funding for human services programs, but some lawmakers say there has not yet been enough time to fully evaluate it.

Legislation to replace it passed the state House Human Services Committee last week.
