Corbett action reaction mixed

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by NATE JASTRZEMSKI in Local News

Governor Tom Corbett has filed a lawsuit against the National College Athletics Association on behalf of the commonwealth, railing against unjust penalizations and breaches of procedure in their implementation.

Among those who showed support for the bill was Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, who said he was shocked the "county would turn its back to the voters."
