Scarnati, Others Suing Corbett
The lawsuit argues that Corbett did not follow rules for providing public notice of vetoes, he used the line-item veto on the wrong type of legislation and he put the money in an unlawful reserve.
Scarnati, Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi and Minority Leader Jay Costa want Commonwealth Court to invalidate the vetoes and the use of the reserve.
Corbett's spokesman and legal office say the lawsuit is being reviewed. He vetoed $72 million for a variety of purposes.
