State Representative Justin Simmons Report

The Weekly Roundup Friday, November 06, 2015 The latest news from the State Capitol Game Commission Expands CWD Rules Ohio has been added to the list of states from which high-risk deer and elk parts – including the head and backbone – cannot be imported into Pennsylvania. The action is in response to chronic wasting disease (CWD) being detected in Ohio for the first time.In addition, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has banned the import of parts from the entire states of Maryland, New York, Virginia and West Virginia. Previously, the prohibition applied only to portions of those states. The expanded ban provides the best protection possible to the Commonwealth’s deer and elk herds by preventing CWD from spreading.There are a total of 22

Potential Budget Agreement Looks Like a Shell Game and Tax Hike

Share

 

Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania

According to media accounts, there is some movement on the state budget, and it sounds like a bad deal for taxpayers: “Under the preliminary deal, state spending would rise to $30.7 billion, up about 6 percent from last year’s approved budget. It would be boosted by about $500 million in slot-machine gambling revenue that is currently passed along to homeowners as school property tax cuts. That money would be diverted into a restricted account to pay for public school employee pension obligations. Read More

Backdoor $600 Million Tax Increase in Rumored Deal

Share

NOVEMBER 9, 2015 | News Release by COMMONWEALTH FOUNDATION

Sales Tax for Property Tax Swap Rumor Leaves Taxpayers on the Hook

November 9, 2015, Harrisburg, Pa.—The latest state budget rumors describe a deal to increase the sales tax to provide corresponding property tax relief. Rather than a “dollar-for-dollar” tax shift, this plan would actually increase taxes on all Pennsylvanians by $600 million.

“This backdoor, broad-based tax increase proposal isn’t the kind of compromise Pennsylvania families are looking for,” said Matthew Brouillette, president and CEO of the Commonwealth Foundation. “When revenue-generating alternatives like liquor privatization, pension reform, and corporate welfare cuts are still on the table, ideas that include hundreds of millions in new

Thank You Lynn Donches

Share

LVC staff

 

Monday, November 9, 2015 will be the last East Penn School Board meeting for Board Directors Lynn Donches, Samuel Rhoades, and Wally Vinovskis. We thank all for their service, but it is our opinion that special thanks goes to Lynn Donches.

Ms. Donches ran on a platform with a promise to the taxpayers for transparency and fiscal responsibility to provide a well-rounded education for the students. She upheld those promises through some very challenging meetings where she was chastised for her requests for more information on the bill list and various other requests for additional information so she could make an informed vote. None of the other Board members deemed her requests for information necessary. We commend Ms. Donches’ repeated efforts

Judiciary fronting for tyrannical government

Share

By Larry Klayman at Renew America, Provo, Utah

The federal courts are increasingly leaving the American people defenseless against government tyranny. Over 38 years as a lawyer and federal prosecutor, I have watched the judiciary abandon the checks and balances that once made our Constitution function.

Many Americans still expect that our courts will step in and right the wrongs, even against a political stampede. But, sadly, with few exceptions like D.C. federal judges Royce C. Lamberth, who during the Clinton administration found that “Slick Willy” had committed a crime, and Richard J. Leon, who is about to again enjoin President Obama and his NSA from illegal mass surveillance on the entire citizenry, it is now a quaint notion that our

EAST PENN SCHOOL BOARD SET TO SAY GOOD BYE TO THREE MEMBERS

Share

By LVC Staff

 

The East Penn School District’s meeting on Monday, November 9th will be the last meeting for three current board members. Sam Rhodes, Wally Vinovskis and Lynn Donches will be leaving their school board positions as of December 1st with November 9th the last scheduled meeting.

Wally Vinovskis will be leaving due to his election defeat on Tuesday, November 3rd. Rev. Vinovskis had previously lost an election bid for East Penn School Board in 2011. He was ultimately appointed to fill out the term of resigned School Director Julian Stolz in 2014. While Vinovskis conducted himself as a gentleman, his unquestioned support for the School Administrations’s policy decisions may have cost him with the voters.

Sam (Sandy) Rhodes did not choose

New Report: Pennsylvania is ok on Gun Rights

Share

From the Lehigh Valley Tea Party Second Amendment Committee News Letter

When it comes to gun rights, Pennsylvania is a lukewarm state, according to a recent ranking on www.gunsandammo.com. “Preemption of local ordinances continues to be an issue in the Keystone State, as a trial court invalidated a statute designed to address this longstanding battle between gun owners and cities,” the article notes, ranking us 18th out of 51 (including Washington, D.C., which of course came in dead last at 51). “The state has decent reciprocity as long as you don’t drive north or east, and the state’s deadly force laws score well,” the article adds. “Pennsylvania’s list of prohibited locations is short, and public buildings must provide lockers in which
