Now that the Senate has taken its first step toward actual reform, we need to turn our attention to the House of Representatives. PACleanSweep has joined our coalition friends in signing a letter to House State Government Committee chair Babette Josephs urging movement on reform issues under her guidance.
You can read the coalition's letter to Ms. Josephs at: http://www.pacleansweep.com/hsgc052507.pdf. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view the letter.
It has been nearly two years since the infamous midnight pay raise. Since that time, only ONE piece of reform legislation has actually been passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor.
The will of the people of Pennsylvania to reform state government has been clear since July of 2005. It will be interesting to see if that sentiment has trickled up to the members of the House State Government Committee yet. While the will of the people is strong, we believe their patience regarding continued inaction is beginning to wear thin.
Other members of the House State Government Committee are:
Blackwell, Thomas W., Vice Chairman; Gibbons, Jaret, Secretary; Baker, Matthew E., Minority Chairman; Carroll, Mike; Cohen, Mark B.; Curry, Lawrence H.; Fabrizio, Florindo J.; Freeman, Robert; Kortz, William C; Kula, Deberah; O'Brien, Michael H.; Oliver, Frank Louis; Parker, Cherelle L.; Ramaley, Sean M.; Vitali, Greg; Youngblood, Rosita C.; Benninghoff, Kerry A.; Clymer, Paul I.; Creighton, Tom C.; Gingrich, Mauree; Grell, Glen R.; Mantz, Carl W.; Marshall, Jim; McIlhattan, Fred; Quigley, Thomas J.; Rapp, Kathy L.; Vereb, Mike; Watson, Katharine M.
