Pennsylvania lawmakers grind on with long to-do list

HARRISBURG, Pa. - What could be a lengthy debate over liquor legislation is likely in the Pennsylvania Senate.

Senators convened Friday afternoon as the Legislature grinds toward Sunday's expected adjournment for the summer.

The proposed privatization of liquor and wine sales is one of Gov. Tom Corbett's top legislative priorities, as is generating billions of dollars for transportation projects by increasing a wholesale tax on motor fuels.

The Senate plans to debate the latest bill to permit the private sale of wine and liquor.

The House is expected to debate the latest transportation funding plan Saturday, but top lawmakers said the governor's push for changes to the state's two biggest public employee pension systems will likely wait until fall.
