PA House move to impeach embattled Lancaster County sheriff reopens old Kane impeachment wounds

PA House move to impeach embattled Lancaster County sheriff reopens old Kane impeachment wounds

The House Judiciary Committee this week voted on a resolution to begin the impeachment process relative to embattled Lancaster County Sheriff Mark Reese, who has been on a long-term paid suspension since last summer after sexual harassment allegations against him arose.

 

Should the impeachment move forward and be successful, it would be the first impeachment of an elected official in Pennsylvania since PA Supreme Court Justice Rolf Larsen was impeached in 1994.

 

However, it was not the move to impeach Sheriff Reese that drew debate from committee members, rather an amendment filed to the resolution to begin the process drew concern from a number of Democratic members.

Pennsylvania begins REAL ID compliance effort

Pennsylvania begins REAL ID compliance effort

Pennsylvania started the process of complying with the federal REAL ID Act Wednesday with the Senate Communications and Technology Committee advancing legislation to repeal Act 38 of 2012 and asking the US Department of Homeland Security for another extension of time to allow Pennsylvania to develop a compliant identification card.

 

Passed in 2005, the REAL ID Act requires states to adopt specific, nationwide standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and ID cards in order to strengthen immigration enforcement and boost homeland security.
