5/26 Morning Buzz

PoliticsPA is starting a new feature today. We are going to spotlight a different Chief of Staff each week. Today, we start with Rep. Marino’s Chief of Staff, Bill Tighe. Rep. Altmire & Rep. Holden took a trip to the desert, where they participated in a tour of the US-Mexico border sponsored by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords office. Check out our take on the state budget passed through the state house on the strength of the GOP majority. Finally, the talk in Washington this week has been the Middle East. A lot of that talk came from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference which wrapped up on Tuesday. We have Sen. Toomey and Sen. Casey’s speeches from the conference covered.
