At Last, Scrutiny for Public-Union Deals

Share

by Matthew J. Brouillette at The Wall Street Journal

If you’ve ever spent hundreds on a smartphone or thousands on a new car, you know what it’s like to hunt for the best deal. Yet when paying for state and local government services worth billions, Americans often hand politicians a blank check without ever knowing if they could get more for their money.

Year after year, elected officials behind closed doors negotiate labor contracts for 19 million state and local government workers. The result? Skyrocketing salaries, health-care costs and pension benefits are making services like public schools and policing unaffordable for taxpayers. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, compensation for government workers nationwide has grown 21% since 2000, compared with

Can School Board’s do Anything About Common Core?

Share

The short answer is a robust YES! This question gets centered on the East Penn School Board race. In the May Primary, conservative candidates Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli made a statement in their campaign literature that they wanted to oppose Common core and return to local control. The Teacher’s Union backed slate and their political operatives immediately jumped on this and continue to this day. The union operatives claim that Allen and Donatelli are naïve in that school board’s must follow the mandates of the state and federal governments. While it is true that Pennsylvania has adopted Common Core and renamed it Pennsylvania Core Standards, there are many ways to blunt the negative impacts of this program and its effects on our

The Commonwealth Foundation’s Weekly Update

Share

Dear CF Friend,I wanted to let you know about two important victories today for the citizens and taxpayers of Pennsylvania:

1. Two labor transparency bills were passed out of Senate Appropriations and are now ready for the Senate’s full consideration.

Two bills by Sens. Folmer and Stefano, respectively, aim to shed some much-needed light on the public-union collective bargaining process, and allow taxpayers to get informed about the contracts paid for by their tax dollars. Gov. Wolf’s spokesperson has already indicated that the Governor will consider signing these bills.

2. Two important educational freedom bills passed out of House committee.

HB 805, sponsored by state Rep. Stephen Bloom would end seniority-based layoffs in Pennsylvania public schools, focusing on performance and effectiveness instead. Rep. Jim

A CONSERVATIVE PERSPECTIVE And ENDORSEMENTS

Pennsylvania’s Primary Election is right around the corner at May 19, 2015 from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. We are going to give you, our readers, a look at this election from a conservative view point. We will not have very much to say about Democrat candidates since conservative Democrats are all but extinct! Instead we will report on the Republican races that matter since most Republicans claim to be conservative. We say “claim to be” and that may be a problem. So let us get started.

PENNSYLVANIA SUPREME COURT—Never in its history has the Commonwealth had 3 vacancies on the Supreme Court, except this year! There are six Republicans seeking the party’s nomination for

Metcalfe Reloads House Bill 357

Confirms 10th Annual PA 2nd Amendment Action Day will salute all who protect and serve

HARRISBURG — State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) today announced the reintroduction of his Right to Bear Arms Protection Act that would make all future federal gun control laws unenforceable within the Commonwealth (House Bill 357).

“The ongoing acts of mob violence taking place in Baltimore should offer undeniable proof to all elected officials that disarming law-abiding citizens through senseless gun control laws is the wrong answer when it comes to protecting life, liberty and

County’s fiscal watchdog sues county and police department to get access

Share

by Rachel Martin at Watchdog.org

 

Police in Allegheny County say there’s no need for an auditor to keep tabs on how they’re spending the public’s money.

County controller Chelsa Wagner is going to court to make sure she can.

Wagner announced a lawsuit Tuesday against Allegheny County and the Allegheny County Police Department. At issue is whether she is only able to check the math — making sure the numbers line up — or whether she can also determine whether folks spending county money are doing so efficiently.

While she’s confident she has that authority, a judge will decide.
