(WBRE/WYOU-TV) The way we elect our Lieutenant Governor in Pennsylvania may change.

      The Senate State Government committee approved legislation on Tuesday that would amend the state’s constitution to permit candidates for Governor to choose their Lieutenant Governor candidate after the primary election.

      Right now, we vote for both Governor and the Lieutenant Governor possibly choosing two candidates from different parties.

      The new legislation would allow the Commonwealth’s top two leaders function more like a team.

      The bill will now move to the full Senate for consideration.
