NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Pennsylvania state workers' paychecks are a little light these days.
Struggling to resolve a 17-day-old budget impasse, Pennsylvania is withholding pay for 69,000 state employees for time worked after July 1. Workers Friday received only 70% of their salary, covering days worked in June. Starting two weeks from now, they'll get nothing on payday until a state budget is approved.

Pennsylvania is one of three states that have yet to pass budgets for fiscal 2010, which began July 1. The other two - Connecticut and North Carolina - are operating under temporary spending measures. Still two others, Illinois and Ohio approved their 2010 budgets this week.
