Is the new congressional district map even legal?

Congressional Redistricting Update: What a Mess

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court released its version of the congressional districts map on Monday. As we noted previously, the Court lacks authority under the Pennsylvania Constitution to draw districts. It is likely that Republicans will file suit in federal court to stop the Court-created Congressional districts from being used in the 2018 elections. One avenue for seeking a federal injunction is summarized by Justice Max Baer, the lone Democrat to dissent from the final opinion:

“While I have expressed my misgivings with allowing an election to proceed based upon a constitutionally-flawed map, I continue

Pennsylvania’s constitutional crisis

Share

By Frank Ryan/ American Thinker

 

In a repeat of the state’s extraordinary role in the 2016 presidential election, this year, Pennsylvania will be the center of a serious constitutional challenge.

At stake may be the entire congressional balance of power between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats in PA are attempting to do through the courts what they were not able to do at the ballot box. They are assuming that the woes of their cause are due to redistricting, not to failed policies repudiated by the electorate.

Trump’s stunning statewide victory in Pennsylvania in 2016 had absolutely nothing to do with gerrymandering.

State Reps Dan Miller and Judy Ward Bill on Brain Health

Share

From: Representative Dan L. Miller and Rep. Judy Ward To: All House members Subject: Brain Health/Mental Health Check-up – Former HB 2057

 

In the near future, we plan to re-introduce legislation which would require a brain health/mental health check-up, which at a minimum shall include a depression screening, for each student in the Commonwealth no later than age 14.

 

Currently in Pennsylvania, students are required to undergo a variety of health examinations while attending school. This includes medical and dental exams, vision and hearing screening, scoliosis screening, and a series of immunizations to name a few. While these tests are undoubtedly important, the mental health (or brain health) of our children is of equal, if not greater, importance. According to

Lawyer Care

By Arthur Herring III

 

Shakespeare said, in Henry VI, the first thing we do is kill all the lawyers. A man ahead of his time? Is there any business that is more unregulated and more of a scam on the public than the lawyer business? No. Is there any business more hated than the lawyer business? No. Lawyers call it the “legal system”. Ha! A “system” has intelligence and logic. The lawyers say “The system is not perfect, but it is the best in the world”. They really mean it

State Rep Paul Costa’s Bill on PA Distillers

Share

From: Representative Paul Costa To: All House members Subject: PA Distillers Industry Promotion Board

 

Over the past ten years the Legislature has made significant changes to the craft distillery industry allowing it to undergo record-level growth. In 2012 Pennsylvania had only four limited distilleries but today we have nearly one hundred limited craft distilleries in the Commonwealth. The boom in the spirits industry is exciting yet distillers face unique challenges not seen in the production of wine and beer. It is important that we support our distillers and provide them the same opportunities that our other small PA craft industries are availed.

Therefore, in the near future I will be introducing legislation that will create a PA Distillers Industry Promotion Board.

State Rep Alexander Charlton’s Bill on water and sewer lines

Share

From: Representative Alexander T. Charlton To: All House members Subject: Lead water service lines and replacement of damaged sewer lateral

 

As you know, our nation’s infrastructure is crumbling. We cannot travel our districts without observing roads and bridges that are in desperate need of repair. What’s often overlooked is our critical water and wastewater infrastructure. The American Society for Civil Engineers recently gave a grade of D and D- for Pennsylvania’s water and wastewater systems. That is simply unacceptable.

In an effort to curb this problem, a bi-partisan group of legislators wrote language into this year’s Fiscal Code allowing municipal authorities and municipal governments to replace homeowner’s water and sewer laterals when there is a public health concern such as lead.

Does age and the law matter?

Share

 

Really does ones age, the law, and the Pennsylvania Constitution matter? it looks like those questions are about to be answered this year in the Pennsylvania election for Lt. Governor.

Montgomery County Commissioner, Joe Gale, has announced his candidacy for Lt. Governor in this Spring Primary as a Republican. The problem is that the Pennsylvania Constitution says that a Lt. Governor must have attained age 30 to assume the position. Joe Gale is 28 years old.

One of our readers has been following this and writes to us the following:

 

Dear LV Commentator,

I recently attended a rally where Joe Gale spoke. He is currently a Commissioner in Montgomery County. He said he was running for Lieutenant Governor this
