HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The Pennsylvania Legislature is rushing to wrap up its work on what is expected to be its last voting day of the two-year legislative session.

Bills on the move Wednesday could include legislation to overhaul benefits in Pennsylvania’s two big public pension plans and to temporarily extend a mandate that casinos pay tens of millions of dollars to host communities.

Lawmakers expect to work late into the night as they make one final try to pass a slew of bills. Other bills on tap include a package to fight opioid addiction and to make it easier for gun owners and groups including the National Rifle Association to sue municipalities over their firearms ordinances.
