HARRISBURG -- State Sen. John Pippy resigned from his legislative seat following Saturday's late-night budget votes.

Mr. Pippy, of Moon, who did not file for re-election this year, officially resigned from his seat at 11:59 p.m.

"The last nine years in the Senate have been the most meaningful experience I have had in my professional career," wrote Mr. Pippy in his resignation letter. "My Republican and Democrat colleagues in the Senate have become lifetime friends and I am humbled to have had the honor to work in this ornate Capitol and especially this chamber."

He could not be reached following Saturday night's Senate session.

His exit creates a second open seat in the state Senate. Former Republican Sen. Jane Orie of McCandless resigned in May, prior to her sentencing on 14 criminal counts.
