No statewide ballot questions are certified for the 2014 ballot in the state of Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania’s 2014 legislative session began on January 7, 2014 and is projected to end on November 30, 2014. In Pennsylvania, an amendment can go on the ballot after just one session, but only if the legislature declares an emergency. In the absence of an emergency, the amendment must be considered in two separate legislative sessions. Two measures, however, have been proposed, an advisory question dealing with taxes and education and a constitutional convention question.

Pennsylvania does not have an initiative and referendum process.
