HARRISBURG - Gov. Wolf and Senate Republicans on Wednesday resolved a dispute over a slate of last-minute nominees by outgoing Gov. Tom Corbett.
The Senate confirmed 12 of Corbett's original 28 nominees, including former Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley as a Temple University trustee and Corbett's revenue secretary, Dan Meuser, to the State System of Higher Education's board of governors.
Four others - including two Bucks County judges - are scheduled for confirmation at a later date.
Wolf will choose his own nominees for 12 other boards, including Probation and Parole, Education and the State System of Higher Education.
Republicans criticized Wolf after he called Corbett's nominees "eleventh-hour" choices and recalled them last month on his second day in office.
