Pennsylvania to Downsize State Government

06.04.14 | FL News Team

 Two bills passed the state Senate on Tuesday that would affect all three branches of government. Senators are signaling support for amending the constitution to get rid of top state government offices including Lieutenant governor and two Supreme Court justices. The House would also shrink from 203 to 153 seats. While the Senate would shrink from 50 to 45 seats. Each proposal faces a multi-year path in the legislature before going to voters in a state wide referendum no sooner than next year.
