PA House Openings To Fuel Leadership Battle

HARRISBURG (AP) – Changes are coming to the PA House, thanks largely to the sudden departure of the second-ranking member. Majority Leader Dave Reed’s decision not to seek re-election after considering a run for Congress sets the stage for a battle over leadership later this year. Republicans, who have a 121-to-82 majority in the state House, also are bracing for the retirement of several long-serving committee chairmen, creating several high-profile openings. In the state Senate, where Republicans also hold a comfortable majority, retirements are opening up at the head of the Judiciary, Education, Law and Justice, and Local Government Committees.

REP. DAVE REED
