PA Senate Names Members for Kane Committee
That’s the question the entire commonwealth has been debating. Now, six State Senators must consider the decision.
The body will be made up of three Republicans and three Democrats: John Gordner (chairman), Lisa Baker, Gene Yew, Judy Schwenk, Sean Wiley and Arthur Haywood III.
“The function of the Attorney General’s office is two-fold, first to represent the government interest in legal proceedings, and second to represent the public interest in legal proceedings,” State Sen. Yaw said. “Considering the importance of the position of Attorney General in the government of the state and the functions of the office headed by the Attorney General, General Kane’s ability to perform the duties of the office without a law license needs to be reviewed.”
The committee will have thirty days to examine whether Kane can function as Attorney General without her law license. They will then issue a report in which they could recommend removing Kane from office.
