I wrote earlier that Senate President Pro-Tem Joe Scarnati takes over as Lt Gov duties.
But the caucuses (caucii) are coming up on their own leadership elections.
Does he take over immediately, or does the Senate get a chance to vote on it’s leader (aka the new Lt Gov)… I’m told that the Senate leadership was likely to remain the same. The House is where all the action is.
… too early and crass, no doubt. But it’s an issue.
In anycase, the Lt Gov will serve out the rest of the Rendell term.
