· Bring “vacancy based hiring” to the Civil Service Commission

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) outlined reasons why he sponsored a Senate resolution requiring an independent study of the sustainability and viability of the state’s 14 universities, which are part of the State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).

“Our 14 state-owned universities have a serious problem and the General Assembly needs serious answers,” Argall said. He noted the growing enrollment trends for community colleges, state-related universities as well as Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology that contrast directly with PASSHE. The enrollment trends are featured in Governor Wolf’s Executive Budget for Fiscal Year 2018-19.
