SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, REALLY?

Share

 

Teachers and Staff from the Lebanon School District attended a workshop at the Lebanon Valley Mosque, according to stories by the Lebanon Daily News and Reading Eagle. According to those news reports the teachers and staff “learned about the practices of Islam”, “watched an afternoon Muslim prayer service and were treated to lunch of Moroccan cuisine.” Now this is not the first time for this in Lebanon County. There have been other reports of School District visits to area Mosques. All of these workshops and visits were conducted on THE TAXPAYER’S DIME! Justifying the visit (and taxpayer expense) was the Superintendent who claimed that the workshops were important due to a growing Muslim population! We have reports that Muslim Prayer Rooms have

Senator Scott Wagner’s views on the PA Budget

Good Afternoon: The question of the week has been – how is the budget coming along?The budget question has come in by email, telephone calls and by people that I have talked to face to face.

The answer is very simple – the budget process is at a complete standstill.

The PA House and Senate passed a balanced budget on June 30th – even before the balanced budget reached the Governor’s desk he was issuing statements that he was going to veto the budget – within two hours of the budget reaching his desk – without any extensive review or discussions with the House and Senate – Governor Wolf vetoed the budget.

For a

Education. Comparing PA to other states.

Share

By Ron Beitler at RonBeitler.com

I’m probably nuts for writing about education cause it’s a hyper-partisan mine-field littered with special interests and an ingrained “team mentality”. As a township commissioner I have no influence on these conversations. I have no team and I’m not interested in joining one. I just want to step outside the echo chambers for a minute.

But here goes nothing. I try hard to remain agnostic. Step away from the partisanship and just look at the big picture. To that end, you can somewhat do so since in our American education system we have 49 relatively independent systems to compare. I always go back to how are we doing vs. other states as a baseline.

Breaking: State House and Senate Leaders Send Letter to Governor Wolf Questioning Veto of Budget

Share

State House and Senate Leaders have sent a letter to Governor Wolf questioning the Governor’s Veto of the State budget approved by the legislature. As was mentioned in the letter, the Governor’s original proposal did not receive a single vote in the House, not even from House Democrats. The budget sent to the Governor was a balanced budget that included an increase of $100 million to Basic Education Funding, increased Special Education funding by $20 million, increased Pre-K Counts funding by $25 million, and increased support for Head Start programs by $5 million. A record $10.6 billion dollars for PreK – 12 education.

The following is the text from the letter.

Will Governor Tom Wolf Finally Acknowledge Pennsylvania’s Pension Crisis?

From PAGOP

Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the passage of public pension reform in the State Senate and State House.

“Republicans have put together a solution to address Pennsylvania’s worsening public pension crisis,” Gleason said. “Our Commonwealth’s pension costs are skyrocketing, and Republicans are continuing to lead the way towards substantive pension reform. With sixty cents of every new taxpayer dollar earmarked for rising pension costs, we must address our pension crisis.

“I am proud that Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati, Speaker Mike Turzai, Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, House Majority Leader Dave Reed and Senate and House Republicans for tackling such a difficult

Update: Wolf Vetoes Plan to Privatize Liquor Sales

Share

By State Rep. Justin Simmons

Last week, the governor vetoed legislation which would have gradually shut down the old state liquor store system and replace it with a more modern, privately owned system. House Bill 466 included a series of reforms for beer, liquor and wine sales across the Commonwealth. The bill would have allowed beer distributors to expand their businesses to sell liquor and wine and authorizes private wine wholesalers to sell products. The measure also eliminated a conflict of interest, allowing the Commonwealth to focus on enforcement.

 

Update: Wolf Says “No” to No-Tax Budget

Share

By State Rep. Justin Simmons

During the past month, my colleagues worked hard to put together a responsible, balanced budget with no tax hikes – a plan that raises our investment in education while meeting our needs. It funds the core functions of government and includes more than $400 million in increases for early childhood education, basic education and higher education.

Funding for Pennsylvania school districts reaches historic levels without tax increases. The budget also includes a combined $11 million for the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and institutional assistance grants.

The spending plan also includes additional funding for people across Pennsylvania with intellectual disabilities, rape crisis centers, domestic violence agencies, along with agricultural, environmental protection, veterans and human services programs across

Republicans Lead The Way On Liquor Privatization

Share

From PAGOP

Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the General Assembly’s passage of liquor privatization.

“I would like to congratulate the State Senate and State House for their efforts to bring Pennsylvania’s liquor policy into the 21st century,” Gleason said. “For decades, Pennsylvanians have had little choice and little convenience when buying alcohol. Our state liquor store system is outdated and unnecessarily bureaucratic, and it’s time for our Commonwealth to move past our currently arcane system.

“My hope is that Governor Wolf accepts the meaningful budget solutions like liquor privatization that Republicans have offered, instead of burdening Pennsylvanians with more taxes.”
