Scarnati Issues Statement on Supreme Court Decision

(HARRISBURG) – Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) has issued a statement following the Supreme Court’s denial of Kathleen Kane’s petition to reinstate her law license:

“The Special Committee on Senate Address was prudent in their recommendation that the full Senate wait to take action until the Supreme Court reviewed Ms. Kane’s request. The timeliness of the Supreme Court’s action is certainly appreciated, and given the Court’s denial of her request we will now move forward with addressing this matter before the full Senate.

“In the coming days I will be speaking with the Majority and Minority Leaders in the Senate to determine the date on which the full Senate vote on the removal of the Attorney General will take place. The Special Committee on Senate Address has done an excellent job providing each member of the Senate with all relevant information and testimony from its hearings and I strongly encourage all members to review the materials prior to a vote.”
