Pennsylvania Senate approves takeover of Harrisburg

(Reuters) - The Pennsylvania state Senate on Tuesday approved a takeover plan for its state capital Harrisburg, a lawmaker said in a statement.

The plan, which has already been approved by the state's lower house and is expected to be signed into law by Governor Tom Corbett later this week, sets the state on a collision course with the city, which last week filed for bankruptcy.
