Three-way race heats up ahead of Tuesday special election to replace Keller in 85th HD

A trio of candidates will be vying Tuesday to represent the House 85th District, with a write-in candidate hoping to throw a wrench into what is otherwise a solidly conservative district.

The seat, which covers parts of Snyder and Union counties, was left empty after now former Rep. Fred Keller won a special election to Congress earlier this year. Lewisburg businessman David Rowe is the Republican candidate and will face off against Sunbury physician and Democratic hopeful Jennifer Rager-Kay.

Got milk? Pennsylvania lawmakers show support for dairy industry

Got milk? Pennsylvania lawmakers show support for dairy industry

From the committee room to the Rotunda steps, state lawmakers and members of Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation joined on Tuesday to show their clear and utter support for the state’s dairy industry. 

Members of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee — with bottles of milk in hand — unanimously approved two resolutions in support of dairy milk, one that supports the addition of whole milk to school lunch menus and another that urges US Congress to specifically define the word “milk” as a product from dairy cows.

Amid low turnout, Kenney holds off primary challenge, Republicans hold 3 seats in Harrisburg

Amid low turnout, Kenney holds off primary challenge, Republicans hold 3 seats in Harrisburg

Incumbent Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney beat back a primary challenge from Sen. Anthony Williams (D-Philadelphia) Tuesday, clearing the way for a second term. Meanwhile, Republicans retained control of two Senate seats and a spot in the state House, bringing their drought in 2019 special elections to an end.

Doug Mastriano and Joe Pittman won races to replace retiring Senators Don White (R-Indiana) and Richard Alloway (R-Franklin) respectively, while Marci Mustello defeated Democrat Sam Doctor to fill the seat vacated by embattled former Rep. Brian Ellis (R-Butler). Those victories come after Democrats regained control of two House seats and flipped a state Senate seat in special elections earlier this year.

Even though ruled law of the land, how to put Janus into state code sparks controversy

Even though ruled law of the land, how to put Janus into state code sparks controversy

A hearing on a legislative response to the Supreme Court’s Janus ruling got a little chippy Wednesday as lawmakers attempted to discredit testimony on the politically charged topic of public sector unions.

With the 5-4 June decision from the country’s highest court, unions representing government employees can no longer ask every workplace member for agency fees.

However, state law still allows for the charging of agency fees, whether involuntary or voluntarily, and Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York) introduced her bill, HB 2571, to put the commonwealth in compliance with the new interpretation.
