Update: Wolf Says “No” to No-Tax Budget

Share

By State Rep. Justin Simmons

During the past month, my colleagues worked hard to put together a responsible, balanced budget with no tax hikes – a plan that raises our investment in education while meeting our needs. It funds the core functions of government and includes more than $400 million in increases for early childhood education, basic education and higher education.

Funding for Pennsylvania school districts reaches historic levels without tax increases. The budget also includes a combined $11 million for the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and institutional assistance grants.

The spending plan also includes additional funding for people across Pennsylvania with intellectual disabilities, rape crisis centers, domestic violence agencies, along with agricultural, environmental protection, veterans and human services programs across

I Voted Yes on the Budget Bill This afternoon, I joined a majority of my colleagues in supporting the state budget bill. We passed a fiscally responsible budget that doesn’t raise taxes, increases state funding for education by $370 million and funds Pennsylvania’s core priorities without Gov. Wolf’s reckless spending proposals.House Bill 1192 now moves to the Senate for consideration, with the expectation it will arrive on the governor’s desk before the June 30 budget deadline. We are encouraging him to sign it into law.

Pennsylvania Governor’s Action Draws Strong House Rebuke

From Representative Justin Simmons web-page

Less than a week after Gov. Tom Wolf failed for the second time to carry out a lawfully imposed death sentence, the House approved a resolution condemning his actions. House Resolution 143 calls on the governor to reverse the moratorium on the death penalty and perform his constitutional duty to respect the court’s sentences. Wolf imposed the ban in February as he awaits the findings of a task force studying the issue.

Our legislation will address specific elements of standards of practice for the selection of board members and their training, including education, licensing requirements, and ethics. It will also establish standards for the selection of investment advisors and counselors by the boards of SERS and PSERS and will avail direction and compliance with the Financial Industry Regulatory

East Penn School Board “Lets lower the taxes”. Hold on though, don’t get too excited

Share

Hold your surprise, it seems like all the school board members suddenly want to lower your taxes. This may appear to be a strange request, especially after they just voted 8-1 to increase your school taxes by 3.78%. So what gives? Well, it turns out that the Superintendent may have found some extra money laying around. That’s right, extra money, and almost $100,000 to boot, wow! What will they do with this windfall? Well, that’s the exact question the Superintendent posed at the school board meeting on 6/8/2015. The Superintendent was looking for the boards guidance, so he asked them and they responded with gusto. A vast majority said apply it to the tax increase we just approved. The only board member that voted against

East Penn School Board member suggests openness to promote Foundation

Share

You may not be aware, but East Penn School District is trying to start a Foundation that would allow businesses to divert some of their profits to the District and in return, receive a tax write off. It turns out that the District has already had one meeting on this topic, with Superintendent Schilder saying it was attended by only 8 individuals. According to the Superintendent there is another meeting scheduled, but during his report at the school board meeting he failed to mention the date, time and place. In an effort to inform the public, School board director Ms. Donches stated that the next meeting would take place on June 16th.

In order to promote and help the District we are including the Continue reading…

East Penn Superintendent and Treasurer present flawed budget…

Share

But it still passed 8-1.

You read right, even though the school district has two policies stating the budget have at least 5% of the total budget as a reserve, that would be $7,000,000 in a $141 million dollar budget for this coming year, the administration presented a budget that was short of the required reserve funds, and 8 members of the board voted to support it anyway. Only one board member, Ms. Donches, voted against this budget.

The same board members who approved this budget, also voted to allow Superintendent Schilder to cut 10% of his principles budgets. This 10% directly funds items relating to student education and safety. Again only one board member, Ms. Donches, voted against these cuts to the

Muller strikes again, forcing yet another unnecessary County showdown

Share

What is it with Lehigh County Executive Tom Muller? Also known as Mr. Pinocchio and why does he insist on ramming through last minute demands on the Lehigh County Commissioners (LCC)? His latest demand to the County Commissioners is that they vote to approve his decision to award Good Shepherd the contract to manage Cedarbrook Nursing Home.

On the face of it this it may seem like a reasonable choice, but if you attended the Commissioners meeting last night (6/10/15) you would have heard the Commissioners side of the story and it is quite different from Executive Muller’s position.

It all started months ago when it was decided a change of the management team currently handling Cedarbrook was needed, and ended last night
