HARRISBURG (AP) – The speaker of the PA House says his last day on the job will be Monday. Republican Rep. Mike Turzai of Allegheny County made the announcement yesterday, after a farewell address. Turzai has been in the House since 2001 and speaker since 2015. He says he hopes to work in the private sector, but hasn’t announced any specific plans. Turzai played an active role in campaigns, helping his party expand its majority numbers, and provided forceful, conservative opposition to Gov. Tom Wolf.
