General Assembly Restores Wolf Education Cuts 


 
watch video
On Wednesday, I joined the majority of my colleagues in the House and Senate in passing legislation that will require use of a more equitable school funding formula rather than Gov. Tom Wolf’s plan that heavily favors the School District of Philadelphia. House Bill 1589, which also restores construction reimbursement funding schools are owed through PlanCon (the Planning and Construction Workbook), passed each chamber of the General Assembly by a greater than two-thirds majority, making it unlikely that the governor could sustain a veto.

Passage of House Bill 1589 by a veto-proof majority restores the cuts to local school districts that Gov. Wolf made when he vetoed the previous Fiscal Code bill and replaced it with his funding scheme that would have funneled an inordinate amount of money to the School District of Philadelphia.

This bill contains a bipartisan formula that is supported across the state and benefits local schools with several hundred thousand dollars of additional funding over the governor’s unlawful proposed distribution.

The governor applauded the Basic Education Funding Commission’s work last year and then ignored their recommendations. In so doing, he turned his back on the majority of Pennsylvania’s school students in favor of a relative few in areas he has chosen as his favorites. Wednesday’s bipartisan super-majority vote in the General Assembly shows how wrong his decision was.
 

Attention Senior Citizens –
I hope to see you at my Senior Active Living Expo this Wednesday, April 20. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Treasure Lake Church Family Life Center, near the intersection of Bay and Anchor Roads, Treasure Lake, DuBois.

I would like to thank the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Care Unlimited, DuBois Continuum of Care and Today’s Senior for partnering with me to hold this event. My staff and I are looking forward to the expo and the chance to meet and speak with the many senior citizens from across the district.

More than 60 vendors will be on hand to showcase their services. For those who cannot or do not wish to drive to the expo, Fullington Bus will provide transportation to the event on the following departure schedule in DuBois:

10 a.m. - St. Michael’s Terrace, 111 West Long Ave.
10:15 a.m. - Gateway Towers, 21 E. Long Ave.
10:30 a.m. - DuBois Senior and Community Center, 120 West Park Ave.

The bus will leave the expo at 2 p.m. and drop-off in reverse order of pick-up.
 

Good luck…..
to everyone hitting the water this Saturday for the opening day of trout season in Elk and Clearfield counties!
