Reform is off to a Shouting Start in Pennsylvania

So much for cordial alignments outside the Washington beltway.

A proposal by Republicans in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives to cut Democrats from legislative committees and limit the minority party’s ability to amend bills is drawing an outraged response.

Shouting and catcalls from upset Democrats erupted today during a Rules Committee hearing at which the GOP-backed changes were voted on for consideration by the full House.

Mr. Zager’s career in journalism is ripped from the pages of an adventure novel. Upon graduating from the esteemed Newhouse School of Public Communications, he headed north, about as far as one can travel and still stand in the Continental U.S. The call of journalism not a penchant to play with Polar Bears brought Zager to the ‘Last Frontier-Juneau, Alaska. Over the course of Zager’s more than 20 years in journalism, he has covered the political side of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, dodged horse manure on the backside of Churchill Downs, and has uncovered numerous scams and scam artists. Eric is constantly in search of a meaningful story to tell. - Email Eric Zager
