Sen. Casey tackles important issue in Washington

You'd think Sen. Bob Casey would have better things to worry about.

But according to the Associated Press, Casey isn't happy with new management of the Senate restaurants on Capitol Hill because the restaurants no longer carry two important items made in Pennsylvania: Snyder's Pretzels and Utz Potato Chips.

Casey, a Democrat, has written to two managers who oversee operations of the restaurants asking for the items to be returned. He says the snack foods, both made in York County, have been sold in the restaurants since 1996.

Casey says if complaints to his office are an indication, many other patrons are also unhappy.

Earlier this year, the Senate decided to privatize the restaurants as part of an effort to save taxpayers money.
