Welfare Reform Package
Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today applauded the introduction of a package
of bills aimed at bringing much-needed reform to the state’s public welfare
“Welfare spending is out of control, and that’s due in large part to people
abusing the system,” Causer said. “While the Rendell administration was
willing to overlook the significant evidence of waste and fraud uncovered
over the last few years, House Republicans are not. The welfare system must
be accountable to the taxpayers who fund it.”
eight-bill package, known as WelFAIR (Fairness, Accountability, Integrity
and Responsibility), would reform the welfare system by:
Using photo identification to make sure benefits aren’t misused.
Cross referencing welfare applicants through 19 different databases to
Strengthening legal penalties for those who commit welfare fraud.
Preventing applicants from “benefit shopping” in other counties.
Reducing abuse in a welfare program that helps people truly in need get
to and from doctor appointments, pharmacy visits, methadone clinics,
dialyses treatments, physical therapy and other medical appointments.
Transitioning the fraud-laden special allowance program from grants to a
Prohibiting the purchase of tobacco with welfare benefit cards.
Requiring drug felons who apply for welfare benefits to submit to random
said evidence of waste, fraud and abuse within the welfare system can be
found both in audit reports from Democrat Auditor General Jack Wagner and
media stories from across the Commonwealth.
According to audits released by Wagner, one Allegheny County resident was
issued 99 different Access cards, the electronic benefit transfer (EBT)
cards used by welfare recipients. In Philadelphia, a father of five was paid
more than $7,000 to babysit his own children, a feat he accomplished by
using a fake name and Social Security number.
recently, a daycare provider in Allegheny County was accused of selling
drugs from her facility and accepting welfare EBT cards as collateral for

Casey Votes to Protect
PA Jobs, Clean Air
WASHINGTON, DC— U.S.
Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following
statement after the Senate took a series of votes on EPA
regulation of greenhouse gas emissions:
emissions pose threats to public health and the
environment. How this threat is addressed is important
for a manufacturing state like Pennsylvania during an
economic recovery. That is why I voted today for
legislation that would protect Pennsylvania jobs,
Pennsylvania agriculture and allow steps to be taken to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Further, I have also
pushed for small businesses to be exempted from any new
“I remain concerned
that regulatory action without sufficient safeguards and
congressional action could harm industry and workers in
manufacturing states like Pennsylvania. At the same
time, in the absence of congressional action on energy
legislation, there should not be a prohibition on the
development of plans to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions. And new clean energy industry should be
encouraged in order to continue the progress being made
to create Pennsylvania jobs.
“I will continue to
work toward solutions that can protect public health
while protecting Pennsylvania jobs.”
Governor, Lt. Governor Costs $3M
HARRISBURG, PA (AP) — It costs at least $3
million a year to provide round-the-clock security for Pennsylvania's
governor, lieutenant governor and their families, a newspaper reported
The cost includes salary, overtime and benefits for the Pennsylvania State
Police's executive service section, The Patriot-News of Harrisburg said.
That figure does not include travel and other expenses for the troopers
while they are doing their job.
Acting state police Commissioner Frank Noonan defended the cost as
necessary, even while state government is facing cutbacks to address a
projected multibillion-dollar deficit.
"The shooting of Rep. (Gabrielle) Giffords in Arizona just shows you that
these things can happen at any time," Noonan told the newspaper.
Noonan said he has tried to reduce the detail's overtime costs through
scheduling and by assigning fewer higher-paid ranking officers to it.
The detail's members guard the governor in public and drive him around. They
plan travel routes and investigate locations where the executives are to
appear. When the governor is at his official residence in Harrisburg, the
troopers patrol the grounds and watch security monitors.
Most states provide such security to their governors. Officials in New
Jersey and New York said they do not keep records that break down the cost
of the security. An Ohio Department of Public Safety official said the cost
The Giffords shooting prompted Texas to expand protection to the lieutenant
governor, House speaker and state attorney general for a period of time.
In Florida, a proposal before that state's Senate would halve the $1.5
million cost to protect the governor.
Rapp Participates in 2011-12 Right to
Work Rollout to End Compulsory Unionism Across Pennsylvania
State Representative Kathy Rapp
(R-Warren/Forest/McKean) joined in a state Capitol press conference with
House members, leading Right to Work advocates from across the state and
several negatively impacted individuals committed to ending the practice of
compulsory unionism on Tuesday to officially reintroduce the Pennsylvania
Open Workforce Initiative (House Bills 50-53).
Rapp’s Right to Work legislation, (House
Bill 51) would repeal Pennsylvania’s School Employee “Agency Shop” Law (Act
84) to return the individual decision of whether or not to join or support a
labor union to teachers and all other public education employees.
“It is unconscionable for any level of
government to allow union leaders to profit or maintain their existence by
leeching off the earnings of another,” said Rapp, the 2008 recipient of the
Pennsylvanians for Right to Work Statesmen of the Year Award.
“Approximately 75 percent of Pennsylvania school districts operate under
forced union contracts, which means that 75 percent of all public school
teachers must join or pay union dues in order to keep their jobs. With
nearly 85 percent of teacher strikes occurring in districts with forced
union dues contracts, clearly Act 84 or Pennsylvania’s Agency Shop Law has
done absolutely nothing to improve labor relations in our public schools.”
Designed to protect the individual
freedoms of Pennsylvania’s working citizens, schools and the economy by
ending the practice of compulsory unionism, other specific legislation and
bill sponsors comprising the Pennsylvania Open Workforce Initiative are as
House Bill 50 Freedom of Employment
During the past decade, real personal
income rose 28.3 percent in America’s 22 Right to Work states as
compared to 14.7 percent in forced unionism states, such as
Pennsylvania. During the same time frame, the number of welfare
recipients per 1,000 residents was 17.3 in forced unionism states,
compared to just 7.6 in Right to Work states.
Under Metcalfe’s free-standing Right
to Work legislation, employment will no longer be conditional upon
paying dues to a union.
House Bill 52 Repeal of Act
84—(State Employee “Agency Shop” Law)—Representative Tom Creighton
Since 1988, nearly 20,000 non-union
state employees have lost their individual freedom to decide whether or
not to join and support a union. As a result, millions of dollars are
collected annually by the state from non-union members in the form of
compulsory union fees and sent directly to the American Federation of
State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and other state employee
union coffers at the expense of Pennsylvania taxpayers.
House Bill 53 Repeal of Act
15—(Local Employee “Agency Shop” Law)—Representative Jim Cox (R-Berks)
This Right to Work protection bill
would return the individual freedom of choice to all local, municipal,
county and township employees to decide for themselves which private
organizations they wish to support and prevent the collection of
compulsory union dues.
“As the power of labor leaders grows
through the collection of forced union dues, students, parents and citizens
from all walks of life are held hostage to their demands and almost always
end up paying the ransom through even higher taxes,” said Rapp. “Each of
the Right to Work bills we’re introducing here today has the potential to
provide all working Pennsylvania citizens with the freedom to join and
support only those organizations that promote and share their values.”
Governor Tom Corbett has recently
indicated that he would sign into law, Rapp’s and all other Right to Work
legislation that is sent to his desk For the latest legislative updates,
Casey Highlights Economic Benefits of Early
PA— U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) today met with government and business
leaders to stress the economic benefits of early childhood education at the
PA Early Learning Investment Commission’s (ELIC) 2011 Economic Summit on
“Investing in children is not only the
right thing to do to ensure children reach their full potential, it will
also pay huge dividends for the economy and build a workforce for the
future,” said Senator Casey. “That is why I was pleased to join
Pennsylvania business leaders and other officials to talk about my proposals
to provide access to quality early learning opportunities for all children
to prepare them for success in school and beyond.”
As the new Chairman of the Joint Economic
Committee (JEC), Senator Casey today reached out to business leaders to
identify ways to raise the profile of the payoffs of investing in early
learning. Noted economists agree that investing in early childhood education
is fiscally responsible because it yields a return of investment of between
$3 and $17 for every dollar invested, with benefits like reduced need for
special education, lower juvenile justice rates, increased high school
graduation and college matriculation rates and increased productivity among
Last month, Senator Casey introduced
legislation to create an early learning challenge fund to encourage states
to invest in early learning. The Supporting State Systems of Early Learning
Act (S. 470) is modeled after Pennsylvania’s experience with early learning
and will help to ensure that more low-income children have access to quality
learning and development opportunities.
The bill will award competitive grants to
states to help them build systems of early learning and require states to
develop a tiered program rating and improvement system like Keystone STARS
to help parents identify quality early learning providers.
Senator Casey has attended PA ELIC’s
annual summit every year since its formation in 2008.
Toomey Pleased with Decision to Try KSM in Military Court
Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement following news that
the Justice Department has decided to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh
Mohammed in a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay.
“I was pleased to hear that 9/11
mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will finally be brought to justice and
that President Obama has decided to try him in a military tribunal at
Guantanamo Bay,” Sen. Toomey said. “The military tribunal is the proper
place for a fair trial that will safeguard American national security
interests. Unlike a civilian trial, a military tribunal will avoid the

Discusses State Budget Cuts - Rep. Martin Causer met with students
and officials from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Tuesday to discuss
state funding for the university. The group expressed its concern over
Gov. Tom Corbett's proposal to cut 50 percent of the University of Pittsburgh's
state funding and the impact it would have on the local campus. Causer said he
is working with fellow lawmakers to restore a portion of the cut; however, he
also indicated that the difficult economic times require cuts across every part
of the state budget.

Plants Will Replace Plant, PC Exec
By Martha Knight
Plant 5 died at age 51, when owner Pittsburgh Corning Corporation
had it razed in late March. Still standing is much senior Plant 1, built in
1937. Plant 2 (the former foamglass facility) and the Products Building (onetime
research and development location) and a storage building on Pearl Street were
other victims of demolition projects in recent years.
But for now, no more demolitions are planned, according to Don Tanner, PCC’s
vice-president for global human resources. The former site of Plant 5 will
become a “green space,” featuring trees and grass and other landscaping “to
enhance the property and the neighborhood.”
In e-mail answers to questions by a reporter, Tanner said Plant 5 was razed as
part of an ongoing effort to consolidate the company’s manufacturing process.
The assembly work that had been done in Plant 5 and the equipment associated
with assembly have been relocated to another part of the Port Allegany facility.
The assembly projects had to do with creating large windows and panels used in
“the commercial building area of the business.”
Tanner also emphasized that no jobs had been affected by the most recent
physical downsizing of the business.
Not mentioned in the exchange with Tanner was another benefit of the elimination
of some of the structures owned by PC in Port Allegany: reduction of real estate
taxes. After each earlier demolition, the company has requested and been granted
changes in its tax assessment.
Meanwhile, county, borough and school district taxes are part of the debt load
listed by the company, which has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy since 2000. Port
Allegany borough manager Richard Kallenborn says the borough hopes to receive
some of what is owed it, through the bankruptcy process, but has no assurances.
“Those dollars will have to come from other taxpayers,” he said, noting that
repeated cuts in the PC workforce
have hit the local economy hard.
“I was looking at some records and noticed that a few years ago there were more
than 350 employees there,” Kallenborn observed recently. “So many people we can
think of (from PC’s local history) could not have imagined this happening to the
company.” The current workforce is a fraction of the number who worked there in
the “glory days,” when Port Allegany was the glass block capital of North
America, and possibly of the world.
Tanner said Plant 5 was 48,000 square feet in size. Some asbestos abatement was
performed prior to the gross demolition, when some Transite (asbestos-cement
material) was removed from the exterior and “properly disposed of prior to the
bulk of the demolition.”
Demolition permits were received from the borough of Port Allegany, Tanner said.
Other permits came from McKean County Soil Conservation Department and the
Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). DEP was also notified
10 days before any asbestos abatement work, Tanner added.
Currently, the company awaits a bankruptcy court ruling concerning its latest
plan of reorganization.

Bookmobile Day Proclaimed, Vehicle
By Martha Knight
Next week is National Library Week all across the land, but many
communities do not celebrate National Bookmobile Day, which is April 13. That’s
because many communities do not have bookmobiles. Even in Pennsylvania there are
Port Allegany Mayor Don Carley paid tribute to the familiar,
colorfully lettered white vehicle Monday night by reading aloud to the Borough
Council and others present an official proclamation with seven Whereas’s and a
final Be It Resolved.
The S.W. Smith Memorial Public Library and Bookmobile’s well-used
bookmobile service has enabled the local library system to serve the two
boroughs and four townships of its sprawling service area by taking books and
media to the population. The service has many enthusiastic and faithful users.
The official proclamation says:
“Whereas, libraries everywhere play a vital role in supporting the
quality of life in their communities; and
“Whereas, librarians are trained professionals, helping people of
all ages and backgrounds find and interpret the information they need to love,
learn and work in a challenging economy; and
“Whereas, for over 100 years, bookmobiles and direct-delivery
outreach services have played a vital role in fulfilling the mission of
libraries, bringing the resources of libraries and the expertise of librarians
directly to all kinds of communities—rural, urban and suburban; and
“Whereas, bookmobiles are modern, changing and dynamic mobile
information centers for the 21st century, providing not just books, but DVDs,
music, resources for job searches and more; and
Whereas, as an extension of libraries, bookmobiles are part of the
American Dream—places of opportunity, education, self-help and lifelong
“Whereas, bookmobile use is up nationwide among all types of
library users; and
“Whereas libraries, librarians, library workers and library
supporters across America and beyond are celebrating National Bookmobile Day
during National Library Week;
“Now, therefore be it resolved that I, Donald G. Carley, Mayor of
Port Allegany, proclaim National Bookmobile Day, April 13, 2011, in Port
Allegany, and encourage all residents to visit the S.W. Smith Memorial Public
Library and Bookmobile that day to take advantage of the wonderful library
resources available at your library, or brought directly to you by bookmobiles.”
Library board member Lynn Farber noted that the bookmobile is
currently in need of new tires and a fuel pump, prior to inspection. Cleveland
Brothers Equipment Company, Lantz Corners, services the diesel-powered vehicle,
which is expected to resume its regular circuits soon.
The current bookmobile newsletter solicits recollections from
community members, asking how many generations of bookmobile use current users
recall in their families, and how many bookmobile drivers and librarians they
To mark National Bookmobile Day there will be a coffee hour in
Eldred, an open house at the bookmobile with bookmobile cookies, a photo
display, and other proclamations by officials in other municipalities served by
the “roving library annex.”
Duke Center supporters of the
bookmobile program can contribute at the Duke Center Superette, using the
“railroad bank.” Other patrons and the public at large can contribute at the
bookmobile, or at the library, or by mailing marked contributions to the
library. Photo Submitted
