HARRISBURG, Pa. – A seven member bipartisan Special Committee on Senate Address has taken another step that could lead to the possible removal of embattled Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

The committee adopted a five page resolution on Monday that sets January 12, 2016 at 1 pm in hearing room 1 of the North Office building at the Capitol Complex as the date, place and time for a full hearing, open the public, that examines Kane’s ability to perform the duties of her office with a suspended law license.

The resolution also directed the Senate Sergeant-at-Arms or his designees to serve a copy of the resolution along with the Special Committee Report, and all exhibits to Kane’s office on or before 5 pm Friday, December 11.

About two weeks following the conclusion of the hearing the Special Committee will submit a report to the Senate President pro tempore, the Secretary-Parliamentarian of the Senate for consideration and action by the full Senate.
