Redistricting transparency proposal rebooted

A proposal that aims to bring more transparency to the redistricting process has been recently reintroduced by Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland).

 

The proposal, which is currently in its cosponsorship memo form, was introduced last session by Rep. Delozier as House Bill 1898 and seeks to amend Pennsylvania’s constitution to change how state and Congressional districts are drawn.

State looks to begin crackdown of Philadelphia stop-and-gos

State looks to begin crackdown of Philadelphia stop-and-gos

As Republicans in the state legislature look toward more private participation in the retail liquor and wine market, one current retail alcohol anathema is being examined for stricter enforcement: so-called “stop-and-go” locations in Philadelphia.

Lawmakers introduce proposal to delay human services-related agency consolidation

Lawmakers introduce proposal to delay human services-related agency consolidation

In the same session week that saw a House Republican crafted budget proposal make its way to the Senate, legislation has been put into the works that would delay a major portion of the budget plan: the consolidation of four human services-related state agencies.

 

The same day that the budget bill passed the House, Rep. Gene DiGirolamo (R-Bucks) and Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) began circulating a cosponsorship memo for legislation to delay the consolidation of the Department of Human Services, Department of Health, Department of Aging, and Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs until studies conducted by the Joint State Government Commission and the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee can be completed and shared with the legislature.
