A highly anticipated report into how police and prosecutors handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case will be released early next week, Pennsylvania's attorney general said Friday.
Regional rail lines in greater Philadelphia were back up and running Sunday after President Obama stepped into a dispute between labor and management and ordered more than 400 engineers and electricians back to work.
As Pennsylvania lawmakers prepare to reconvene Monday after a four-week break around the primary election, there is no shortage of ideas for plugging a potential $1 billion-plus shortfall in state revenue.
Gov. Tom Corbett has met with a special prosecutor investigating his handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case while he was attorney general and why it took so long to bring charges against the former Penn State assistant football coach.
Judicial activism is back, and with a vengeance. Unelected judges with personal agendas felt the rush of power that came from making public policy with the school-prayer cases in the 1960s and school busing in the 1970s.
Gov. Tom Corbett is throwing his support behind legislation to replace Pennsylvania's largest public pension systems with a less costly hybrid system for future state and school employees, his spokesman said Wednesday.
Editorials from around Pennsylvania:
Philip Ameris, who heads a labor organization that speaks for more than 15,000 western Pennsylvania laborers, opposed Tom Corbett when he was elected four years ago but has been whistling a different tune since passage of $2.3 billion a year in new transportation funding.
A daily look at late-breaking news, coming events and stories that will be talked about in Pennsylvania on Tuesday:
After a late election night, Gov. Tom Corbett woke up in his Pittsburgh home at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday to read a federal judge's 39-page decision telling him he had lost the fight to defend Pennsylvania's law banning recognition of same-sex marriage.
Another day, another federal judge overturning a state marriage law.
Gov. Tom Corbett issued an executive order Friday that allows drillers to extract natural gas from rock buried deep below Pennsylvania's state forests and parks, while barring drilling-related construction that would disturb the surface of the nearly 2.5 million acres of public lands.
Catherine Hennessy and Kristin Keith didn't plan to marry right away. But those plans have changed, thanks to an offer by Philadelphia's mayor.
The fall campaign for Pennsylvania governor is likely to cost tens of millions of dollars, and some of that could be spent as part of an effort to defeat Gov. Tom Corbett over the Republican's position on climate change.
Pennsylvania Democrats tapped millionaire businessman Tom Wolf as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, launching what promises to be a bruising campaign that began with immediate salvos between the candidates.
He said there could be a negative effect on Democrats if they select a more liberal candidate that galvanizes GOP opposition.
Still, barring other GOP missteps, Corbett's unpopularity alone may not be enough to help Democrats flip seats, he said.
