HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania's Republican senators postponed a planned floor debate on legislation designed to allow private store operators to sell wine and liquor in Pennsylvania.
The impending Wednesday session was put off until Thursday, amid signs of growing desperation among Republican majority leaders to reach a consensus on issues that are important to Gov. Tom Corbett.
Lawmakers are planning to meet all week to wrap up a new budget and other business before leaving Harrisburg for the summer.
Normally, Senate Republican leaders don't bring a bill to the chamber's floor unless the Republican majority approves of it and they've ensured it'll pass.
Senate Republicans, however, are split over legislation on wine and liquor sales being sought by House Republicans and Corbett. Democrats oppose it.
Pennsylvania driver's licenses that are compliant with tougher federal anti-terrorism standards should be available in early 2019, according to Gov. Tom Wolf's office.Read More »
