Specifically, the Pennsylvania Department of Education is the single state agency that is federally authorized to approve these programs,” said Governor Wolf. “Last year, my administration distributed approximately $57,000,000 in state Career and Technical Education funding to schools across the commonwealth. By removing program approval authority from the department, this bill would impair those schools’ ability to receive this funding and would eliminate funding for agricultural education programs approved under this bill’s provisions. In addition, the bill would require schools that currently receive Federal Perkins funding for Agriculture Education programs to forego such funds, costing those schools $6,345,299.”Senate Bill 1172“This legislation alters the existing standard in determining price gouging and permits pre-established increased costs during emergencies. Further, the legislation encourages the prices of consumer goods and services to be increased prior to a state of disaster emergency being declared. This legislation undermines the purpose of the act by reducing the standard for determining an unconscionable excessive price and shortens the period of this prohibition,” said Governor Wolf. “Rather than burdening consumers, I look forward to continuing to work with the General Assembly to protect the citizens of the commonwealth during a public emergency.” October 24, 2018 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Governor Wolf Takes Action on Multiple Billslast_img read more
