He wants to cut it in half over two years, but that phase-in won't make everyone happy. The Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants says stretching out tax cuts makes them less of a sure thing. Meanwhile, Republicans are taking a wait-and-see approach, saying they need more details about Wolf's plans...

 

Outside Income

With one of the highest-paid state legislatures and a recent history of corruption... one Pennsylvania lawmaker is introducing measures he says will restore public trust. Representative Anthony DeLuca is proposing a constitutional amendment... to limit lawmakers' outside income to 35 percent of their General Assembly base pay.

Block Party

A lot of misinformation.... or no information is being circulated about Block Party in Bloomsburg. That word from Bloomsburg University's Jim Hollister... who represents BU at every council meeting. Hollister... taking the gloves off at Monday night's council meeting... when he was the target of Greek organizations who claimed that the University was unwilling to help in solving the event's problems.

Governor's Power

Two decisions handed down by Gov. Tom Wolf are igniting battles over how much power lies within the office of the state's chief executive. The Governor's firing of the head of the Office of Open Records is being challenged in Commonwealth Court, while the state Supreme Court is being asked to weigh in on Mr. Wolf's moratorium on the death penalty. Legal experts say this type of challenge is nothing new in Pennsylvania, because of the way state government is structured.

When figuring out new healthcare mandates... insurance company representatives say the state will need to strike the right balance between all the branches of the healthcare field, from pharmaceuticals to providers to patients. Lawmakers are planning to reach out to drug companies to discuss costs.

AG Kane

Lawyers for Pennsylvania’s attorney general say the judge who supervised a grand jury that’s recommended charges against her should be removed from any future proceedings in the matter.

Liquor Privatization
The state House Liquor Control Committee voted 15 - 10 in favor of bill privatizing the state store system in Pennsylvania. The bill is almost identical to a measure passed in the House during the last session but was never brought up in the Senate. As in the past, Republicans feel the state should get out of the liquor store system and point to the financial windfall the state could receive, while Democrats point to the job losses, as well as the potential negative impact on the state's economy.
