You will hear from a former Secretary of Legislative Affairs for Governor Corbett, who will discuss the development of legislation in the Governor’s Office. You will also hear from a member of the Senate, who will provide an overview of the legislative session of the Senate and legal issues that have arisen related to the Parliamentarian rules.
