On Monday, the Senate passed legislation I am co-sponsoring to prevent municipalities from targeting responsible gun owners with local firearms ordinances that are more restrictive than existing state laws.

Senate Bill 1330 would allow an individual or organization to sue to block an overly restrictive local firearms ordinance. In current practice, gun owners who are accused of violating local ordinances often lack the time and financial resources to engage in a lengthy and costly legal

$5.6 trillion.

That’s how much a recent report from the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, estimates state and local governments across the U.S. have promised to their employees, but can’t afford to pay.

Normally, if an employer promises its workers more than it can pay, its workers lose out, but that’s unlikely to be the case here.

Since most state and local pension promises represent legal obligations, it will be state and local taxpayers who bear the burden of

Final Stretch

Share

Monday, October 24, 2016

Dear CF Friend,

Today begins the final three-day stretch of session before the election.

But a lot can happen in three days.

Pension reform remains a possibility. The Independent Fiscal Office is preparing to release its cost analysis of the latest proposal, which includes a side-by-side hybrid plan for new state employees. Once this happens, a conference committee can take up the legislation immediately.Meanwhile, a recent poll showed 54 percent of Pennsylvania voters favor placing new state employees in a 401(k)-style retirement plan. While the legislation under consideration doesn’t fully move new employees into a 401(k)-style plan, it’s a step toward improving the status quo. Legislation to save vape shops stalled in the House last week, but lawmakers could

House Passes Petri Bill to Expedite Termination of Parental Rights in Adoption Process

HARRISBURG – On Tuesday evening, the House unanimously approved legislation sponsored by Rep. Scott Petri (R-Bucks) that seeks to ease the Commonwealth’s adoption process, giving Pennsylvania children a better chance of being adopted.

 

“I have heard from many would-be adoptive parents who have found it difficult and costly to navigate Pennsylvania’s cumbersome adoption laws and have opted to go elsewhere to adopt a child,” said Petri. “The adoption process is unnecessarily challenging, risky and expensive – factors

Argall leads effort to hire additional welfare fraud investigators

 

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) wants to boost the number of investigators dedicated to rooting out welfare waste, fraud, abuse and misuse.

 

Argall’s amendment to House Bill 1618 will require the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to hire 50 percent additional staff to better investigate welfare fraud cases and tips.

 

“Reports have shown that each welfare fraud investigator in the OIG is able to uncover $1.28 million in overpayments and fraudulent activity,” Argall said. “These social assistance programs are in place to help people with a genuine need; they are not there for someone to swindle the taxpayers.”

 

Argall said it’s a matter of accountability and ensuring
