The Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee this week approved through a bipartisan vote legislation I introduced that would reduce the penalties for most cases of possession of small amounts of marijuana.

This is a commonsense reform aimed at saving taxpayers money and ensuring the punishment fits the crime. We want criminals to pay a penalty, but we also want

Key labor bill advances, Dems stage walkout

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

Dear CF Friend,

On Monday, I watched 11 Democrats demonstrate the rights government workers deserve—while voting against granting them.

Let me back up. Monday morning, the House Labor and Industry Committee met at the Capitol to discuss the rights of our state government workers.

One of the bills on the agenda was Rep. Kate Klunk’s HB 2571, which ratifies the Supreme Court’s Janus decision as state law in Pennsylvania, while also instructing public employers to notify nonunion workers that union payments are voluntary, and to inform new employees that paying a union is not a condition of their employment.

CF has endorsed this bill from the start because government employees deserve to know their rights.

October 9, 2018 Status-Quo Special Interests Are Hypocrites on Pennsylvania Property Tax Elimination

Otto,

The Establishment PA Chamber of Commerce, and virtually all of the public school lobby organizations, love to say that property tax revenue is “stable”, while other revenue from other sources is not.

Therefore, they say, we cannot eliminate it.

We always ask “stable for who?” For the tax collector?

I suppose when you can constantly raise the rate, and with the threat of losing one’s home, the tax collector could view the property tax as stable.

But what about the taxpayer? Is it stable for them? Absolutely not.

While the Chamber praises the property tax and touts it’s supposed stability, it has contradictory views of other taxes.

In one

Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania Guest Post: Governor Wolf Takes Credit for Solving a Problem He Caused

By, David N. Taylor President & CEO of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association

Even after two decades in Harrisburg, the cynicism of some politicians can still surprise me.

This afternoon, Governor Tom Wolf will hold a bill signing ceremony for Senate Bill 1056, now Act 72 of 2018. Even as we express our gratitude to Sen. Michelle Brooks (R-Mercer), Rep. Frank Ryan (R-Lebanon), and all of our legislative allies, Act 72 became necessary ONLY due to the actions of Governor Wolf and his Department of Revenue.

In the quiet of the Friday before Christmas, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue published a policy change covering depreciation of capital
