HARRISBURG – The PA Senate State Government Committee approved legislation to reform the process for electing Lt. Governor. Senate Bill 106 would amend the state Constitution to permit candidates for governor to choose their Lt. Governor candidate after the primary election – a process that mirrors how presidential candidates currently select their vice presidential running mates. Bill sponsor, Sen. David Argall of Berks & Schuylkill Counties said his measure would eliminate any friction between candidates for governor and lieutenant governor. If the measure is approved by the state Senate and House, it could be on the May 18 primary ballot for PA voters to decide.
