HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Gov. Tom Wolf and leaders of the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Senate say they’re come to an agreement over how to handle more than two dozen nominations to state boards and commissions made by outgoing Gov. Tom Corbett.
The Senate confirmed 12 nominees Wednesday, including former Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley to be a Temple University trustee and Corbett’s revenue secretary, Dan Meuser, to the State System of Higher Education’s board of governors.
Four others are to be confirmed at a later date.
Meanwhile, 12 of Corbett’s selections will be replaced by Wolf nominees.
Those include former Corbett administration officials he nominated to the Board of Probation and Parole and the State Board of Education, and four nominees to the State System of Higher Education board.
