BLOG: Governor Wolf’s Three 2016-17 Budget Priorities

first_img Budget News,  The Blog As we approach the 2016-2017 budget deadline, Governor Wolf has affirmed three priorities that are critical to providing smarter, long term investments in schools, social programs and public safety.Our commonwealth faces a massive deficit and the possibility of compounding future fiscal gaps if we don’t move Pennsylvania in the right direction by balancing our budget with sustainable revenue.Let’s take a closer look at the governor’s three priorities.Education FundingFunding our schools has always been, and continues to be, a top priority for Governor Wolf and his entire administration.As we approach the 2016-17 budget deadline, Gov. Wolf is fighting for a $250 million increase to basic education funding, as well as $30 million for early childhood education, and $30 million for special education.Addiction Treatment FundingGovernor Wolf has spent much of his past three months at roundtables across the commonwealth discussing local and statewide efforts to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic in Pennsylvania.Governor Wolf proposed $34 million in the 2016-17 budget. This funding would allow the state to draw down approximately $18 million in matching federal funds to implement 50 Centers of Excellence that will treat more than 11,000 people that currently are not able to access treatment.Deficit ReductionIt is a widely-acknowledged fact that a reliance on one-time fixes and delayed payments has led Pennsylvania into a dire financial crisis: a massive deficit that threatens our investment in schools, social programs and public safety.Governor Wolf is working with Republicans and Democrats in the General Assembly and he’s engaged them for their ideas to accomplish this task responsibly.

Tropical Storm Dorian’s Potential Local Impact Currently Unknown

first_imgA tropical storm warning has been posted for Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. St. Lucia is currently under a tropical storm watch. In addition, favorable water temperatures, as well as low wind shear in the storm’s path, will likely lead to more strengthening.The National Hurricane Center says that additional watches or warnings could be issued later Sunday for portions of the Windward and Leeward Islands. The center also advises those in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Hispaniola to monitor the storm’s path.Dorian is expected to become a hurricane by the time it reaches the Northeast Caribbean sometime during the middle of the week. Forecasters expect the storm to undergo increasing wind shear later this week as it interacts with land, potentially leading to gradual weakening.The NHC also says it is too early to tell what impact, if any, South Florida could feel from Dorian. Dorian is certainly keeping forecasters guessing, for now.The tropical storm, which formed over the weekend, is currently located more than 2,100 miles to the southeast of South Florida.It has top winds of 40 miles per hour, and should continue moving in a west-northwesterly direction.2 PM EDT: #Dorian is getting a little better organized as it moves toward the Lesser Antilles, were tropical storm conditions could begin as early as Monday https://t.co/ERoXbHE8Wa pic.twitter.com/OwACjlT2cW— National Hurricane Center (@NHC_Atlantic) August 25, 2019last_img read more

Osimhen’s Former Agent Reveals Why Lille’s President Prefers Napoli

first_imgVictor Osimhen Victor Osimhen’s former agent, Franco Iovino of Star Factory, has suggested that Lille did not want to do transfer business with other clubs interested in signing the Nigeria international except Napoli.The 2015 U17 World Cup-winning striker was linked with a plethora of Premier League clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, following a breakout season that saw him bag 18 goals in all competitions.Iovino has pointed an accusing finger at Lille for complicating negotiations with Napoli after pressurizing Osimhen to change agents, and claimed that the Super Eagle was heading to Italy only because of the relationship between the presidents of the Serie A and Ligue 1 clubs. “It was not clear what happened. Perhaps something fishy went down, probably between the Presidents of Lille and Napoli,” Iovino told Radio Punto Nuovo, according to Football Italia.“The negotiations didn’t slow down because of Star Factory but because the player kept hesitating. William D’Avila is a home agent in Lille. The club will surely have advised Osimhen to leave us and go with him.“They will certainly have promised him money. Lille for some reason wanted to only sell to Napoli, because there’s an excellent relationship between the Presidents.“At the moment, my company doesn’t need to look itself in the mirror, the two clubs do.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
