PA Legislature Eyes Busy Last Week Before Summer



The Pennsylvania Legislature's busy last week before lawmakers depart Harrisburg for the summer is beginning fitfully.
 
Two prominent committee votes on Monday's agenda were all delayed until Tuesday.
 
Those include a House committee vote on a major highways and transit funding bill and a Senate committee vote on a $28-billion-plus state spending plan. A bill to liberalize the sale of wine, liquor and beer received approval from a Senate committee by a narrow 6-to-5 vote.
 
But some Republicans supported it grudgingly and say it faces more changes before the full Senate considers it last this week.
 
Lawmakers also could consider a federally funded Medicaid expansion, an overhaul of public employee pension systems, tougher ethics rules and academic standards for charter schools and the appointment of a state Supreme Court justice.
