In the Senate’s first full week of the new two-year session, a Senate committee advanced legislation that would kill Philadelphia’s sick-leave law and withhold state grant dollars from sanctuary cities.  

So far, Wolf has vetoed 16 bills since he became governor two years ago, and none have been overridden by the Republican-controlled Legislature. There’s only been one veto override since 1994.

This year could test that rarely crossed line.
