HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The top Republican in Pennsylvania’s Democrat-controlled House is warning of potential chaos when state lawmakers reconvene next week, six weeks after they elected a speaker and left the Capitol without doing any other business.

In early January, the members elected Democratic state Rep. Mark Rozzi as House speaker. He has been working on new rules with a small group of three lawmakers from each party.
