Member Group : Media Reports

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Absences by a Pennsylvania state lawmaker who has missed every session day since July are raising objections from a fellow House member.

Monday’s absence by Democratic Rep. Kevin Haggerty of Lackawanna County was recorded as unexcused. That’s after a fellow Democrat, Rep. Michael Carroll of Luzerne County, objected to Haggerty’s request for an excused absence.

The House last recorded Haggerty as “present” on July 22, making Monday the 21st straight session day he’s missed.
