Dems renew call for special session on gun control while key Republicans preach patience

Democrats again appealed to Gov. Tom Wolf Wednesday to call a special session on gun control, following recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, as well as sustained gun violence in Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley.

At least one Republican has joined that call, with Rep. Wendi Thomas (R-Bucks) telling The PLS Reporter Tuesday that she supported lawmakers returning early from their summer break to address the matter.

Lawmakers to consider moving voting machine funding out of budget

Lawmakers to consider moving voting machine funding out of budget

Lawmakers are looking to roll support for counties purchasing new voting machines into a legislative rebuke of Gov. Tom Wolf’s decision to compel local governments to buy new machines ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
