GOP lawmakers in PA rebuff governor's call for voting machine funds

06.13.19 | Traci Lynn Woolsey

Republican legislators are refusing to commit to the millions of dollars sought by Governor Wolf to replace the state's voting machines in time for next year's presidential election.  They insist the added expense will hurt counties.

The controlling party members in the commonwealth are pressing for the governor to back off on his push to decertify machines that were used last year.

For security purposes the upgraded machines need to create a paper trail.

Republicans say they agreed to machine upgrades, but not to replace every voting machine in Pennsylvania.
