Harrisburg, Pa. – Members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives convened today to vote on a motion to override Governor Wolf's veto of House Bill 2787, which would give school districts decision-making authority on school sports and spectators.
PA State Senate 25
Pennsylvania's twenty-fifth state senate district is represented by Republican Senator Joe Scarnati.
As of the 2010 census, a total of 233,497 civilians reside within Pennsylvania's twenty-fifth state senate district. Pennsylvania state senators represent an average of 254,048 residents. After the 2000 Census, each member represented 245,621 residents.
The PA Senate is the upper house of Pennsylvania’s legislative body, and the final stop for bills created in the house. Like the US Senate, it is smaller than the lower house. Unlike the US Senate, which gives each State two seats evenly, State Senators all represent proportional districts.
The Primary Election is Tuesday, June 2, having been postponed from the original April date because of COVID-19. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Check with your local polling place for possible changes.
