Corman Does Not Rule Out January Session Before Corbett’s Term Ends

Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-Centre) told an interviewer for WHP-TV, as reported by, he is not ruling out a lame-duck January legislative session while Gov. Corbett is still in office to move important legislation.
In the same interview, Sen. Corman was cool to Gov.-Elect Wolf’s proposal for a natural gas severance tax and income tax increase proposals saying the state needs to look for savings and other efficiencies before a tax can be considered as a last resort.
Corman said pension reform is a top priority for the General Assembly.
