A right-to-work bill in the 50-member state Senate attracted just nine sponsors, all Republicans. Absent were the names of Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati, Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi and those of about a dozen Republicans from the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh regions. Just 35 members of the 203-member state House joined as sponsors to a bill in that chamber.David Patti, a Corbett supporter who leads the Harrisburg-based business advocacy group, the Pennsylvania Business Council, said Monday that right-to-work legislation is barely on his list of priorities because it is "too much of a political lift."
