Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania Guest Post: Ending the Cycle of Poverty

By, Aaron D. Kaufer Representative for House District 120

Ronald Reagan once said, “The best social program is a job.” I happen to agree with him. Our Commonwealth has a responsibility to assist able-bodied individuals to become self-sufficient. Our public policies should reflect that fact. When I talk about welfare reform, this is what I mean: helping to get people who can work back to work. The goal of this type of reform is to break the cycle of poverty which our current welfare system perpetuates. People want to work and provide for themselves and their families. In fact, studies suggest that people are happier and healthier when they take pride in their work.

Secretary Albright struck a positive tone as the Administration believes the Commonwealth is in the best

Helping Victims of Sexual Harassment

In light of public revelations of state employees being sexually harassed within the workplace, I have co-sponsored new legislation which would help individuals who are victims of sexual misconduct. The legislation seeks to reform current procedures in the PA General Assembly for the investigation and resolution of allegations of sexual harassment and protections from said harassment.

The legislation would be known as the “#METOO PA General Assembly Act” (Member and Employee Training and Oversight on PA General Assembly Act. It is a state version of the federal measure impacting the U.S. Congress.

The state version would do the following:

Legislative Update Friday, January 05, 2018 The latest news from the State Capitol Legislative Year in Review

As we begin a new year, it’s worth looking back at the first half of the 2017-18 legislative session where we advanced a number of important bills to improve education and our safety, enhance the quality of life for families and senior citizens, and reform government – all while standing up for taxpayers.
