Pennsylvania House returns to voting session

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The Pennsylvania House of Representatives is back in session, with bills on police shootings, casino taxes, sanctuary cities and animal abuse on the agenda.

The Thursday session was added a day earlier to wrap up business with what could be the final votes of the current two-year legislative session.

Lawmakers are debating a proposal to prevent immediate disclosure of the names of police officers involved in shootings or use of force where there is a death or serious injury.

The Senate is adjourned until Nov. 16, but it could still consider bills during two days scheduled for next month.
