Compromise Budget: Government That Works

first_imgLike Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf December 09, 2015 By: J.J. Abbott, Deputy Press Secretary Compromise Budget: Government That Workscenter_img Government That Works,  The Blog In bipartisan fashion, the Pennsylvania Senate overwhelmingly passed a compromise budget based on the agreed-to framework established weeks ago by the Governor and legislative leaders. In addition to historic investments in our schools and the first step toward the restoration of the cuts made to human services programs, this budget enhances the governor’s mission to create a government that works for all Pennsylvanians.This compromise budget invests in important programs aimed at solving some of Pennsylvania’s biggest crises and expanding some of the commonwealth’s most successful programs: increasing funding to combat the heroin epidemic, investing in workforce development programs, funding four new cadet classes for the Pennsylvanian State Police, increasing access to food security for needy families, and protecting Pennsylvanians’ air and water.Attacking the Heroin EpidemicThe compromise budget includes an additional $9 million in funding toward efforts to combat the heroin epidemic spread across three agencies. Since his inauguration, Governor Wolf has worked with his administration to provide real solutions not only to save lives but also to help addicted individuals and their families get the treatment they need to live long, productive lives.Such actions taken by the Wolf Administration include the development of the ABC-MAP prescription drug monitoring program which can finally be implemented upon passage of the budget, the creation of the interagency Heroin Task Force, the support for the use of naloxone at schools across the commonwealth, and stocking all Pennsylvania State Police cars and Capitol Police officers with the naloxone drug. Since equipping State Police cars with naloxone, over 300 lives have been saved with this drug. Further, at the Governor’s request, Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine signed a standing-order allowing any Pennsylvanian to obtain this life-saving drug.Investing in WorkersThe budget increases funding for Department of Labor and Industry programs totaling nearly $11 million, including $4 million for increased training initiatives; $5 million to leverage an additional $18.5 million in federal funds for vocational rehabilitation and assistance; and $400,000 to expand services at centers for independent living. This infusion of state dollars will help Pennsylvania significantly strengthen and expand these vital programs and partnerships with higher education and the private sector.Making Pennsylvania SaferThe compromise budget increases funding for the Pennsylvania State Police by nearly $25 million to fund four new cadet classes and increase complement to the highest level in commonwealth history. This will increase the strength of Pennsylvania’s primary law enforcement and public safety agency despite expected retirements and turnover.Strengthening Food SecurityThe budget includes an increase in the State Food Purchase Program of $3.4 million, providing additional funding for local food banks, to ensure the most vulnerable of Pennsylvania’s families can find food security in their time of need.Protecting Air and WaterThis compromise increases funding for Department of Environmental Protection program appropriations by more than $8 million, including a nearly $5 million increase to protect Pennsylvanians’ air and water quality.

IN FULL: MARTIN McGUINNESS LETTERKENNY SPEECH AT CLANREE HOTEL

first_imgMORE THAN 700 people packed into the Clanree Hotel on Saturday night to show their support for Presidential candidate Martin McGuinness.This was his address in full to those who were there:“I am delighted to be here this evening in Letterkenny addressing you as a candidate for the Presidency of my country. Donegal of course has a special place in my heart. My mother was from Donegal and I spent many summers as a boy on my grandfather’s farm on the Inishowen peninsula. I have fond memories of those times and I cherish my connections to this great county.Derry and Donegal have a long and close history. The partition of Ireland has had a deep and lasting effect on both. Ecomomically, politically and socially, partition was a disaster for Donegal and for Derry. It was a disaster for Ireland.Towns were cut off from their natural hinterlands, Businesses were cut off from their natural markets, farmers along the border suffered disruption and hardship. Disruption was also caused to social life along the border and even to family connections.The Peace Process has gone a long way to tackle the worst effects of Partition but there is much further to go. Many of the physical barriers have been removed. The next stage needs to be to build an all-island economy. The wasteful duplication of services needs to end. Sensible all Ireland working can deliver better services. Look at the example of the new cancer centre in Altnagalvin, or the new A5 road. None of these developments and others would have happened without the all-Ireland Ministerial council or which I am the longest serving member.In this Presidential election thousands of Irish citizens are being denied the right to vote for their President. The current President could not even vote in the Presidential election if she still lived in her native Belfast. This must change. Irish citizens from whatever part of Ireland must be able to vote in Presidential elections and the Government must do whatever it takes to ensure that this democratic entitlement is realised.In the meantime, vote or no vote, I intend to be a President for all of Ireland’s 32 Counties.Huge progress has been made in recent years in ending the conflict on this island, and in creating a new peaceful dispensation in which our people and our country should be able to thrive. But we have to go further. We have to begin to heal the scars of the past 40 years.The period during the next Presidency will see the centenary of many defining moments in our history. These commemorations need to be handled sensibly and sensitively. I intend to ensure that they are handled in a way that all sections of our people can participate in and learn from the commemorative events. I have also proposed that this decade of commemorations become a Decade of Reconciliation which would celebrate the diverse nature of Irish society and the peace we now enjoy.Bridges have been built in recent between the communities in the North and between North and South. In this regard I want to acknowledge the contribution of President McAleese who made ‘building bridges’ a theme of her Presidency.I believe that the time has now come to move from bridge building to building unity.As President I want to lead the way in bringing all of our people — North and South, Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter closer together through mutual respect and understanding. I want to bring both parts of our Ireland closer together, laying the foundations for Irish unity. I have said from the outset that I intend to be a President of the People. I want to be a President that stands for hard pressed working families; for those struggling to pay mortgages; for those people losing their jobs and facing emigration; for those with disabilities; for those lying on hospital trolleys.These are the people who need a President who will shine a light on their needs, who will highlight their concerns, who will stand up for their interests.There are parts of Ireland, such as Donegal, which have been disproportionately affected by unemployment, by emigration, by a lack of infrastructural investment, by having had their vital services, including health services, stripped to the bare minimum.There are some in official Ireland who believe that some Irish people and some parts of Ireland deserve first class status while others don’t really matter. Well as someone who has struggled for 40 years to be treated as a first class citizen and I can guarantee people here that under my Presidency every citizen in an Ireland will be a first class citizen and every part of Ireland — North, South, East and West will be cherished. That is the essence of what a republic means.Many of our citizens have become disillusioned with the political system and with many of the long standing institutions of Irish life. This is inevitable considering the events of recent years. But as faith in institutions falls the question must be asked as to what will replace them.I believe that it is time to build a new Republic on this island. A real republic that puts the interests of citizens before those of bankers; a republic that puts the common good before private profit, a republic that puts the welfare of the people above the interests of a golden circle. I believe that the values of community, social solidarity and patriotism must be at the heart of this New Republic.The New Republic must also ensure that meaningful jobs are provided for our people. The jobs crisis is the biggest challenge now facing this country. As Deputy First Minister, I have, along with Ministerial colleagues brought thousands of new jobs to the north – I want to use my international reputation – my influence and skills to go to the boardrooms of major US corporations and elsewhere and help bring new jobs to these shores.In standing for election as President of Ireland, what I am offering is the same leadership, commitment and determination that delivered one of the most successful peace processes in the world. As President I will defend and promote Ireland. I will uphold the constitution. I will stand up for Irish sovereignty and freedom.Throughout 40 years and more of political activism, on the streets of Derry, in Downing Street, in the White House, in the Assembly and on Good Friday I have only ever been interested in serving my country. Now I want to do it as your President. I promise to stand by you the people and I ask you now to stand with me.Go raibh maith agaibh.COMMENTS ARE WELCOME ON DONEGALDAILY.COM, BUT THOSE CONTAINING SWEAR WORDS, ABUSIVE CONTENT OR CONTENT DEEMED LIBELOUS WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED.IN FULL: MARTIN McGUINNESS LETTERKENNY SPEECH AT CLANREE HOTEL was last modified: October 9th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:IN FULL: MARTIN McGUINNESS LETTERKENNY SPEECH IN FULLlast_img read more

BCCI secy denies sending SMS to IPL teams

Racist I Hate Niers Tweet Mars Patriots Announcement of

Showing again that racism is alive and flourishing, a New England Patriots’ fan took the opportunity on the announcement of the team becoming the first NFL franchise to reach 1 million followers to express his contempt for Black people by superimposing on the back of a Patriots’ jersey, “I Hate Ni**ers.”Except he didn’t use the asterisks.Not cool. Worse, the Patriots sent an automated response thanking the racist for his support. Once the vile photo with the tweet was discovered, the team quickly removed it and issued and apology:“We apologize for the regrettable tweet that went out from our account. Our filtering system failed & we will be more vigilant in the future.”This kind of coward behavior speaks to the down side of social media. Cowards hide behind made up names to spew their vile. Earlier this season, Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner said he has been bombarded with racist tweets, no doubt from Michigan fans.“I’ve been called the N-word so many times this year,” Gardner said. “One guy told me I was the N-word, and said I know N-words can’t play quarterback. And I was like, are we not past this? Say what you want about my skill, but come on.”The idiocy of all this is that the Patriots have many Black players on their team and that racist who supports the team, in essence, supports the Black players. Same with Gardner. As soon as he makes a play or beats Michigan State, the same clowns calling him racist names will be the same cheering wildly for him.It’s a bad time when sports cannot be the galvanizer. One of the unique aspects of the games is that, at least for a little while, people come together to support a common cause. Your race or religion or political affiliation does not matter. . . you’re rooting for the same team.And for the most part, that beauty of sport remains. All it takes is one idiot to remind of of the ills of society as a whole. read more
