Swearing In, Inauguration Dates Set

Members of the Pennsylvania House and Senate will be sworn into office on January 6. Leadership is already in place for both chambers, but committee chairs and subsequent memberships have not yet been finalized.

Governor-elect Tom Wolf and Lt. Governor-elect Mike Stack will be sworn into office during inaugural events on January 20.

As with any new governor, the annual budget address will be pushed back, and likely to occur in late February or early March. The state continues to push up against difficult deficit and revenue numbers and may finally act on pensions, liquor reform, and other big ticket items.
