Senator Mike Folmer Column: THIS is “Reform?”

Share

The outcry to change how Pennsylvania draws Congressional and General Assembly District maps began soon after the 2016 Presidential Election.

Redistricting reform has long been a goal of mine. As chair of the Senate State Government Committee, I was looking forward to scheduling public hearings across the Commonwealth on all the proposed bills to change the redistricting process.

Some of those interested in redistricting reform decided they didn’t want to wait for the legislative process. When lawsuits were filed to challenge the constitutionality of the 2011 maps, I was forced to put the planned hearings on hold. It’s next to impossible to have a good public discussion while an issue is being litigated.

During the ongoing court proceedings, my

Back in July, Governor Wolf nominated a union president, Jerry Oleksiak, to be Labor Secretary. As we said at the time:

“Mr. Oleksiak is the President of the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA), the largest teachers’ union in the Commonwealth. Making matters worse, Oleksiak also took part in one of the most tax-payer abusive practices available to union officials: he was a ghost teacher.

“As a ghost teacher, Oleksiak worked full time for the PSEA, but he collected a paycheck, accumulated seniority, and pension benefits from the Upper Merion School District. Although the district was

Efforts by Pennsylvania Democrat Conor Lamb to distance himself from Democratic leadership were briefly put on hold last week when he attended a Washington, D.C., fundraiser hosted by a group of Pennsylvania Democrats loyal to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Lamb, running in a special election for a seat representing a district that voted overwhelmingly for Republicans in 2016, announced earlier this month that he would not support Pelosi if elected.

Wagner Supports Banning Felons from Receiving Public Pension Benefits

HARRISBURG – Senator Scott Wagner (R-York) supported a proposal that would strengthen the state’s ability to remove pension benefits from employees who commit felonies or serve more than five years in prison due to state and federal offenses while on the job.

Wagner, who is a cosponsor of the measure introduced by Senator John DiSanto (R-Dauphin/Perry), said the bill is needed to close existing loopholes in the system.

“When I first got to Harrisburg in 2014, I looked at the portraits of former legislative leaders hanging in the halls of the Capitol,” Wagner said. “Several of those leaders abused the public trust
