2 newly elected Pa. House members sworn in

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives is back to full strength now that the two newest members have taken their oath of office.

Reps. Daniel Miller, a lawyer from Allegheny County, and Kevin Schreiber, a longtime economic development administrator in York City, were sworn in at the outset of Tuesday’s House session while family and friends looked on.

Both men are Democrats, restoring the partisan lineup to 111 Republicans and 92 Democrats.

They succeed Eugene DePasquale, who was elected state auditor general in last fall’s election, and Matt Smith, who was elected to the state Senate.
