Sen. DiSanto's Education Savings Account legislation could help low performing schools and students

Sen. John DiSanto (R-Dauphin) held a press conference at the Joshua Learning Center Tuesday morning where he announced his Education Savings Account legislation.

Limited paycheck protection measure fails to win Senate approval

An amendment offered by Sen. Scott Wagner (R-York) to House Bill 803 to provide for limited so-called “paycheck protection,” which would stop the automatic deduction of union dues from public school employee paychecks, failed to gain a majority of Senate votes Wednesday afternoon.
