Pennsylvania lawmakers return to Harrisburg for a special session
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Amid a six-week standoff, Pennsylvania lawmakers returned to the state capital in Harrisburg for a special session on Tuesday.
Late Monday night, House Speaker Mark Rozzi sent members a list of “Rozzi Rules” that have been in development for several weeks. It is currently unknown if these rules will be adopted.
What is known is that three Democrats will be sworn in Tuesday in the House of Representatives after winning special elections to fill vacant seats earlier this year. These particular electoral victories give the Democrats a majority of 102 to 101, marking the first time in 12 years that the Democrats will control the House of Representatives.
Rozzi has vowed that while he is spokesman, his first and only focus will be to pass legislation creating a constitutional amendment that would allow survivors of alleged childhood sexual assaults to prosecute their alleged abusers beyond the statute of limitations Sue.
Whether Rozzi will remain spokesman after this week’s special session remains to be seen.
