After a long summer break, the state House is back in session—for now. But lawmakers aren’t expecting to tackle anything too divisive before Election Day.
The House will have just 12 voting days before lawmakers retire to their districts for the election. The Senate, which returns next week, will have nine.
Major items on the docket include decisions on expanded gambling and a state pension overhaul. Governor Tom Wolf is also seeking a joint session to address the opioid crisis.
