The House and Senate were in session for the last week of the year, with much of the action coming in the House, which passed a package of budget process bills on party-line votes. They also sent to the governor a bill restricting abortions to 20 weeks gestation, which Gov. Tom Wolf vowed to veto. On the House floor, three House Democrats contested the excused absence of another Democrat, Rep. Kevin Haggerty of Lackawanna County, who has not voted on the House floor since July. Meanwhile, a constitutional amendment changing the way the lieutenant governor is selected was discussed during the same week an inspector general report came out about Lt. Gov. Mike Stack and his wife’s interactions with staff. Finally, The Caucus published a cover story on sexual misconduct in the state capitol. Our guests are: Chris Comisac, Bureau Chief with Capitolwire; Steve Esack, Harrisburg Correspondent, Allentown Morning Call; and Brad Bumsted Harrisburg Bureau Chief, The Caucus. Our host is Francine Schertzer.
