HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Leaders of the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Senate say they’re not returning the paperwork for more than two dozen nominations to state boards and commissions that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf wants to halt.

The Senate Rules Committee approved 13 of the nominations Tuesday for consideration by the full Senate. Former Gov. Tom Corbett filed the nominations before his tenure ended and Wolf has criticized the process as lacking transparency.

A Senate GOP spokeswoman says the nominees will be judged on their qualifications.

The nominees who were advanced include the director of Corbett’s southwest Pennsylvania office, Mary Ann Eisenreich, to the State Board of Education, former Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley to the Temple University trustees, and Corbett’s revenue secretary, Dan Meuser, to the State System of Higher Education board.
