The Senate State Government Committee approved legislation, Tuesday, which would amend the state’s constitution to permit candidates for governor to choose their lieutenant governor candidate after the primary election.
According to Skook News, the process mirrors how presidential candidates currently select their vice presidential running mates.
Pennsylvania’s constitutional amendment process requires that the proposal be approved by the House and the Senate during the same legislative session in which it was introduced, followed by a re-approval of the House and Senate in the next legislative session in 2021 before it is placed on the ballot for the approval of Pennsylvania’s voters.
The bill will now move to the full Senate for consideration.
