GOP Lawmakers Push Obama Administration to Get Tough on Sanctuary Cities After San Francisco Killing

Share

“Sanctuary city policies coupled with the Obama administration’s lack of immigration enforcement have created a public safety crisis,” said one top House Republican to The Daily Signal.

by Ken McIntyre from the Daily Signal

Republican lawmakers in the House and Senate are pressing the Obama administration to get tough with San Francisco and other jurisdictions that don’t cooperate on immigration enforcement, after the fatal shooting of a woman on a popular stretch of the California city’s waterfront.

The man accused of the July 1 killing is an illegal immigrant and convicted felon from Mexico who had been deported five or more times.

In a scathing letter, nine Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday told the nation’s top

PA Rep. Justin Simmons: Wolf’s Severance Tax Revenue Estimates Wildly Overstated

Share

Wolf’s Severance Tax Revenue Estimates Wildly Overstated Gov. Tom Wolf has tried to justify his recent veto of the state budget bill by saying it was necessary to achieve his goal of imposing a severance tax on the extraction of natural gas in Pennsylvania to fund education.Back in March, the governor presented a plan to enact a severance tax – a tax the Pennsylvania Independent Fiscal Office characterized as the highest of any state in the country.To determine if the governor’s proposal would actually deliver the revenue the administration suggests his severance tax would generate, the House Appropriations Committee conducted an analysis to determine what revenue it would generate given current market conditions.

“It is shocking how much the administration has overstated the revenue

PA Legislators try to help improve your car and small engine vehicle performance

Share

You may have heard that the EPA was proposing to raise the Ethanol content in gasoline from the 10% to 15% level up to 30%. This was driven by a big push from the ethanol industry, no surprise there.

Part of the problem is the water retention that is caused by ethanol’s ability to absorb water, thus causing carburetors to foul up on vehicles that may sit unused for longer periods of time like; motorcycles and lawnmowers.

There are additives that can be added to your gasoline to help prevent the ethanol moisture problems from happening when a can of gasoline, the lawnmower, motorcycle or car is left idle sitting around the garage for too long allowing water to be absorbed

“Fair Funding?” Yet another delay

Share

What’s one more week after all its only for the children. The legislature has been working for a year to develop a “Fair Funding” formula that will better distribute school property tax revenues between the 499 school districts within our fine State. Currently there’s a cost spread for instructing each student ranging from $25,746 in the Bryn Athyn school district, of Montgomery County to $10,628 in Greater Nanticoke area School district, of Luzerne County.

Wow!!! A difference of $15,118 per child. Yeah, you could say there’s a funding disparity! How does our district compare? Well, for 2013-2014 it cost EPSD $14,299 to instruct a student.

There’s been another group running around the state trying to influence the legislators to see how

The Truth about Education Funding

When Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed the budget bill on June 30, he passed on another record amount of state education funding. The chart below goes back to 2007-08 and includes the two years that Gov. Ed Rendell supplemented state funding with federal stimulus dollars that were a two-year appropriation designed for that time period and no longer.From there, Gov. Tom Corbett continued to increase state dollars and Wolf could have done likewise without raising your taxes, as he is proposing. Don’t be fooled by his rhetoric. These are the facts about our commitment to education.

The education funding plan put forward by the governor would cater to one area of our state: Philadelphia. In fact, 32

EPSD 2015/16 budget BS 101

Paul Champagne

As EPSD goes about its usual business with the proposed 2015/2016 budget, we can all expect more of the same old BS. Earnshaw’s we are really working hard on this budget to keep it as low as possible and assure that we don’t effect the children’s education and there’s nothing more we can do about it. Heid ( a professor) I am not happy about this tax increase, but there’s nothing we can do. Bacher’s, I’m a smart man and I can see the reasons we can’t do anything about it. Rhodes,( he’s a Parkland teacher) doesn’t say much and just doesn’t do anything about it except vote for it. Munson,( a Lehigh professor and his wife is a teacher in
