Reforms Outlined by Governor Mirror Senate Bill Designed to Ensure Fair Elections

(HARRISBURG) –Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) and Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-34) on Governor’s Wolf’s election reform proposals:

“The majority of the election reforms the Governor outlined today during his press conference were contained in Senate Bill 10 that we introduced on Monday to ensure fair elections. With that legislation we are trying to safeguard that every voter has the opportunity to vote, has confidence in the system and receives results in a timely manner.

“Our proposal to increase election access, accountability and security goes further than the Governor’s plan. We look forward to working with him to fulfill the legislative responsibility to ensure fair elections and trust in the election process.”
