Higher Prices at the Pump?

House Majority Leader Mike Turzai said he has postponed a House vote on the transportation revenue bill until October 15th. He said he did it at the governors request.

The bill passed the senate with bipartisan support.

Double Dip

Eighty-six senior judges in Pennsylvania received nearly 11 million dollars last year in combined state pension payments and income for their work in county courts across Pennsylvania.

They benefit from a unique “double dip” arrangement. They get a daily rate plus they still collect state pensions as well as health benefits.
