Senate GOP sends blistering letter to Fetterman, says he ‘scarred the institution’ during General Assistance dispute

The entirety of the Pennsylvania Senate Republican Caucus sent a letter to Lt. Gov. John Fetterman on Tuesday excoriating the lieutenant governor for allowing a Democratic senator to speak on the floor against Senate rules in the midst of a heated debate on ending a cash assistance program for the poor.

 

The letter, signed by all 28 Republican senators, accused Fetterman of scarring the institution when he allowed Sen. Katie Muth (D-Montgomery) to read a letter from a constituent as Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman was calling for a point of order.

Senate Republicans halt GA bill discussion causing Dems to leave the floor

In what Democrats called an “unprecedented” move, Senate Republicans Wednesday elected to abruptly halt amendments and pass a bill ending cash assistance for poor or disabled Pennsylvanians.

In a chaotic flurry of activity, Senate President Pro Tempore Joseph Scarnati (R-Jefferson) took over as presiding officer from Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, as Republicans moved to dispense with a half dozen Democratic amendments and vote on the bill.
