New bill would create more distance between registered sex offenders and schools

Rep. Tina Davis (D-Bucks) and Rep. Pam Snyder (D-Greene) created House Bill 1882, a bill that would prohibit registered sex offenders from living within 2,500 feet of a public school, private school, parochial school, pre-school, or childcare facility.

Lawmakers consider placing all municipal water and sewer authorities under control of the PUC

Lawmakers consider placing all municipal water and sewer authorities under control of the PUC

Pittsburgh’s troubled Water and Sewer Authority may not be the only municipal water utility company to be considered for full oversight by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission following a hearing held by the House Consumer Affairs Committee in Harrisburg Monday. 


While House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-McCandless) and Rep. Harry Readshaw (D-Baldwin) proposed House Bill 1490 back in June to place the PWSA and its deteriorating system of lead pipes and poor customer service under the control of the PUC, Rep. Tina Davis (D-Bucks) is hoping to take the concept one step further by amending the public utilities law to require all municipal water and sewer authorities across the state be placed under PUC jurisdiction.
