Weekly Update from Pennsylvania Pastors Network


January 15, 2016 PPN Weekly eNews

For nearly 43 years since Roe v. Wade—and for decades before that landmark case—abortion has been an ugly subject that many tried to hide under cover. But the American Pastors Network (APN, says abortion must be one of the topics brought to light by pastors—especially this month.

“This fact is, we can no longer ignore abortion in our churches,” said APN President Sam Rohrer. “Many may be struggling with the scars of abortion in their own lives, and looking to the church for help, healing and restoration. Additionally, we must equip our people to stand up for the sanctity of life in their own communities, states and across the nation. In 2015, we were all awakened

Friday, January 08, 2016 The latest news from the State Capitol Work Continues on Finalizing State Budget

Six months of funds are on their way to schools, counties and human services after a partial budget was signed into law last week by Gov. Tom Wolf. More than 87 percent of the 2015-16 budget is now agreed to and in place although the governor continued to cause some disruption with his line-item veto of about $6 billion in spending. House and Senate leaders are working on legislation to complete the remaining portion of the budget.

The $30.3 billion budget, passed by the House on Dec. 8, included $400 million more in education funding, but that increase and more were eliminated by the governor to

Public employee unions’ future in doubt with Supreme Court decision?



By Nathan Mehrens at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Is the practice of forcing public sector employees to pay agency fees to unions on the way out? Based on my observation of the oral arguments in the Supreme Court on Monday in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, I think the answer may be yes.

This case involves a challenge to the practice of the forced payment of fees by Teachers to a public sector union in California. This practice is commonly known as an “agency shop arrangement.” For those employees who do not wish to be full members of the union due to factors such as the union’s political and ideological positions, they may, in some cases, still

What the Top 5 States People Are Moving From Have in Common



By Salim Furth / / at TheDailySignal

Americans are moving to places with affordable costs of living and strong labor markets (or good retirement communities). The top destination states of 2015 could hardly be more different geographically and culturally: Oregon and South Carolina. What they have in common is that both states are relatively affordable places to live.

Conflict of interest for Sen. Tomlinson and funeral director Tomlinson



In Harrisburg, most people know Robert “Tommy” Tomlinson as a state senator from Bucks County, serving his fifth four-year term. A career politician, he also represented the people of the 18th House district from 1991-94. But most people back home in his district know him primarily for his other career – as a full-time funeral director and owner of Tomlinson Funeral Home in Bensalem, which was opened by his father in 1945. These two careers shouldn’t interfere with each other, but Sen. Tomlinson’s role as chairman

GOP Lawmakers Take on Obama’s Executive Gun Control Push




By Natalie Johnson / / at The Daily Signal

Republican lawmakers hit back on President Barack Obama’s plans to unveil a series of executive actions this week aimed at tightening gun laws.

Ahead of Obama’s meeting Monday with top law enforcement officials to finalize expanded gun control measures, House Speaker Paul Ryan called the president’s extent of executive overreach “dangerous.”

“While we don’t yet know the details of the plan, the president is at minimum subverting the legislative branch, and potentially overturning its will,” Ryan, R-Wis., said in a statement.

The Economy Is Far From Booming

President Obama boasts America is in the “middle of the longest streak of private-sector job creation in history.” On paper, he is right. But the economy is far from booming.

While the labor market has improved, it remains much weaker than before the recession hit.
