As you know, when I joined the PA State Senate in 2014, I went to Harrisburg with specific and focused goals. Among them, to end the reckless spending and the culture of self-serving politicians in Harrisburg. Last week, Governor Wolf provided a perfect demonstration of both.
I recently announced that I am the prime co-sponsor of “Clean Slate Legislation” with Senator Anthony Williams. If this legislation would become law, it has the potential to change the lives of hardworking people who are trying to provide for their families and create a better life for their children.
The York County medical community has been an important and vital partner for the Task Force’s mission. I am proud of all of the people in our community who have volunteered their time to be a part of the York Opioid Collaborative.
Last week, I sent out an email blast describing the power of the largest public sector union in Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania State Education Association, also known as the PSEA.
I have repeatedly expressed that the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA), is the number one public sector union that opposes any type of reform in Harrisburg, particularly pension reform and school tax elimination.
I have reported over the last several years in my email updates the power public sector unions have in Harrisburg and that these unions are essentially running Pennsylvania because of their power and influence.
This past Tuesday, a hearing was held with the Department of Labor and Industry (L&I) at which time Kathy Mandarino, the Secretary of L&I testified.
Yesterday, the PA State Senate held budget hearings and one of the agencies that testified in front of the Appropriations Committee was the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
This post today is a follow-up to yesterday’s when I introduced the word “mismanagement.” I continually see zero accountability for money wasted in Harrisburg.
I have the skills and vision to jump start our economy and lead Pennsylvania through reinventing itself to become an economic powerhouse again.
