A couple of weeks ago MDN brought you the sad news that Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai, a staunch ally of the Marcellus industry, is retiring at the end of this year (see Say It Ain’t So! PA House Speaker Mike Turzai is Retiring). Turzai is the top Republican in the Republican-controlled House. Now comes word that the top Republican in the Republican-controlled Senate, “President Pro Tempore” Joe Scarnati will also retire at the end of this year. Yikes! What’s going on?
