PA Constitutional Convention: Fumo: Controversial

PCN featured two PA state senators on its programming discussing a variety of issues. A caller asked if the state should have a PA Constitutional Convention.

Sen. Jeffrey Piccola said he'd held a hearing last year on such a proposal. Many of the issues that arose changing the size of the state legislature, and a variety of process issues are not going to get done unless we have a convention. Sen Piccola said he is going to put in a proposal to call of convention. He doesn't think it will go anywhere.

Senator Vincent Fumo, said he's unsure about a convention since many concerned citizens have a dispute we will we retain the same rights we have, so there is controversy.
