As released by the Governor's Press Office.

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today submitted to the Senate a recall of Marcus Brown’s nomination for commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police. Governor Wolf released the following statement:

“This morning, I submitted to the Senate a recall of Col. Marcus Brown’s nomination as commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police. I continue to have full faith in Col. Brown’s ability to lead the State Police, and he will remain as acting commissioner.

“Col. Brown has been in law enforcement for 25 years and has improved each agency he has led. The Pennsylvania State Police are the commonwealth's top law enforcement agency, and Col. Brown has the experience necessary to serve in the role of commissioner.

“It is common practice for governors to recall nominations to allow time for additional discussion, and historically the Senate honors a governor’s decision. In recent history, three governors - Governors Casey, Rendell, and Corbett - have recalled four cabinet nominations and the Senate has honored those decisions.”
