Hundreds of Pennsylvania legislative proposals hang in the balance

HARRISBURG, Pa. - The fate of hundreds of legislative proposals hangs in the balance when the Pennsylvania Legislature returns from its summer break next month with about a dozen voting days left in the two-year session.

Most bills will die when the session closes at the end of November, but some will make it to the desk of Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

Corbett has been on the road, pressing his argument for changes to Pennsylvania's two large public-sector pension plans.

The list of proposals is long and includes a cigarette tax to fund Philadelphia schools, a revision to the Right-to-Know Law and medical marijuana.

The House and Senate return Sept. 15. The Senate will be in session for 10 days and the House for 11 days before the November election.
