Bill sponsor Republican Adam Koenig says the measure means two or more counties could consolidate if voters approve. Unification has long been a hot topic in the 120 county Commonwealth. But local officials have been resistant to the idea. Koenig says his proposal should be acceptable because it doesn&#39;t force consolidation.</p> Wed, 08 Feb 2012 13:32:45 +0000 Seth Helton 16838 at http://wkms.org
