The PA House Rebukes Santorum

Unless you live under a rock, you probably know that Rick Santorum, the man who rode to Congress by attacking his opponent for living in DC, lives in Virginia. You also probabaly know that despite living there with his family full time, Santorum made the Penn Hills School Disrict pay about $100,000 to educate his children.

Today, the PA House rebuked Santorum. The GOP controled house passed a measure essentially aimed at embarassing Santorum.
Rep. Anthony DeLuca, D-Allegheny, said his proposal, which was attached to an education bill, seeks to clarify that school districts do not have to pay cyberschool tuition for students whose families live out of state. Cyberschools would be allowed to charge tuition for students who do not meet the new residency requirements.

DeLuca said he introduced the measure in response to a dispute over tuition that taxpayers in the Penn Hills School District paid for U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum's children to be educated via computer at their Virginia home. The state has yet to rule on whether the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School must refund the tuition.

Few questions:

1) Who would vote against this?
2) How did Perzel, et. al, let this come to a vote?
