HARRISBURG – PA lawmakers returned to the state Capitol in Harrisburg Tuesday to be sworn in for the two-year legislative session. Republicans hold large majorities in both chambers. The state House begins the session with 113 Republicans and 90 Democrats, although one of those GOP districts is vacant because of a recent death. The House re-elected Lancaster County Rep. Bryan Cutler as the Speaker of the House. He addressed the chamber saying the people of the Commonwealth are sovereign and that representatives need to work hard for their constituents. Republicans hold at least 28 seats in the 50-member state Senate. Senate members have chosen Centre County Republican Sen. Jake Corman as its presiding officer, President Pro Tempore.
