Share

Snap your fingers. Snap them again, again, and again. Now, imagine having a fistful of $1,000 bills in your other hand. Under the 2019–2020 General Fund budget, Pennsylvania will spend over $1,000 ($1,078.05 to be exact) each second. Imagine spending those $1,000 bills you’re holding each and every second for the next year.

Total General Fund spending beginning July 1 is $33,997,395,000, or $93,143,547.95 a day, $3,880,981.16 an hour, $64,683.02 each minute, and $1,078.05 every second.

Two Philadelphia foster mothers are asking the Supreme Court to defend religious adoption agencies from a city policy that would declare them discriminatory and shut them down.

Sharonell Fulton, who has fostered more than 40 children through Catholic Social Services (CSS), and Toni Simms-Busch, a former social worker, want the Court to overturn a Philadelphia policy that targets religious groups for holding traditional views of marriage. Philadelphia currently has 6,000 children in foster care, but the regulation would shutter some of the longest-serving adoption agencies in the city.
