By STEVEN T. DENNIS Staff Writer, Waynesboro CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Franklin and Fulton counties will have to wait a little longer to get a fourth judge after a bill was shot down Tuesday night at the close of the Pennsylvania Legislature's 1996 session. The House passed the bill Tuesday evening and sent it to the Senate, said Rep. Pat Fleagle, R-Franklin. The Senate didn't pass the bill, in part because some senators felt that the measure was brought up too late and that they didn't have enough time to confer with local officials, said Sally Kohr, chief of staff for Sen. Terry Punt, R-Franklin.
