    State House
    In its final voting day before the election, the state House gave final approval to a number of bills. Three of the bills are education-related-allowing schools to keep a supply of epi-pens on hand for students who suffer the effects of food allergies, preventing school districts from allowing abusive teachers to relocate to another state, and reforming the evaluation process for determining when someone who is home schooled has completed all their requirements. The House also approved legislation to require the Pennsylvania Lottery to seek legislative input when creating new games, as well as easing state regulations for emergency crews from other states who come to Pennsylvania for infrastructure repairs following a natural disaster.

     

    State Senate
    In a flurry of activity last week, the state Senate moved several dozen bills. But one issue that saw no final action sparked a four minute floor speech. Senator Lisa Boscola, a Northampton County Democrat, is taking her colleagues to task for failing to pass any property tax reform. She they can't continue to shoot their mouths off about their determination to cut property taxes and meekly return home empty handed. She plans to reintroduce a bill next session to shift table games revenues to property tax relief.
