Complete List of 2017-2018 Legislative Leadership

pa-state-capitol-b175d9a07740ecf3Despite the results earlier this month, not much has changed in terms of the leadership in Harrisburg.

The only real battle was the one to replace Bill Adolph as Appropriations Committee Chair where Rep. Stan Saylor defeated Rep. Scott Petri.

On the Democratic side, Sen. John Yudichak threw a fit when Sen. Larry Farnese retained his position of Caucus Secretary despite Farnese’s legal troubles.

Besides those incidents, though, the transition was fairly uneventful.

    No kidding. The HDCC and SDCC are a complete disgrace.

    They should read the Wikipedia page on “seppuku” and any instructional videos they can find.

  3. Glad to see the Democratic members selected new leadership to reflect their historic gains on Election Day. Oh, wait…..
