Lawmaker Wants To Change The Way PA Chooses Its Lt. Governor

Legislation to change the way Pennsylvania's Lieutenant Governor is chosen will be reintroduced by state Senator David Argall when the new legislative session begins in January. The bill would eliminate the need for candidates for Lt. Governor to run in primary elections. Instead, nominees for Governor from each party would be allowed to choose their running mate. The bill passed the state Senate in the previous session but failed in the state House. Because it's a constitutional amendment, it would have to pass the House and Senate in consecutive sessions, then be put to the voters.
