  16. HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would prohibit an abortion based on a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. The bill, which previously passed the state House, was introduced to the Senate by Sen. Scott Martin. “This bill aims to prevent an entire class of people from being erased on the sole basis of a disability,” he said. “I have been blessed to meet many people who have Down syndrome who deeply enrich the lives of their family and friends, as well as the communities where they live. This bill is an affirmation that their lives are worth living.” Gov. Tom Wolf said on Twitter Wednesday that he will veto the bill. The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania is an opponent of the bill. It’s executive director, Reggie Shuford, issued this statement: “Supporters of this bill have disguised their anti-abortion agenda under the cover of disability rights. If the supporters are so concerned about people with disabilities, we encourage them to create and boost programs that allow people with disabilities to live full and independent lives.” View the full article
  17. HARRISBURG, Pa. - Students in the Harrisburg School District could soon receive taxpayer money to attend school elsewhere. A bill moving through the State House would create a school voucher pilot program for students in the district, giving eligible students taxpayer money to attend other public, charter or private schools. The Harrisburg School District is now under state receivership, and is facing a more than $2 million budget deficit. Some state lawmakers say they are working to pass legislation to ensure the students of the district are not left behind. "It’s going to rescue kids from what we’ve seen is now a generational failure in the city’s school district," said State Rep. Greg Rothman, (R) Cumberland County. Rothman is a prime co-sponsor of HB1800. “It will actually save the school district money," said Rothman. Rothman says, right now, the district receives about $22,000 for every child in the district. This bill would create a voucher program requiring the district pay $4,000 to attend another public, private or charter school. This would allow the District to keep $18,000. “I’ve always felt the city of Harrisburg is the heart of the region," said Rothman. “We can not have a strong region, if we don’t have a strong city.” While the District would only pay $4,000, the state would also chip in another $4,000 allowing a student to receive a total of about $8,000 to attend a school of their choice. “It’s another opportunity for children whose parents, grandparents or guardians think they’re being failed by the Harrisburg school district," said Rothman.

  20. Wednesday is the 4th annual Utility Scam Awareness Day and to recognize the day, Pennsylvania American Water joined Utilities United Against Scams (UUAS). UUAS is a group of more than 140 American and Canadian utility companies. Together, the organization hope to raise awareness and stop toll-free numbers from being used to scam utility customers. “It is so important for our customers to stay vigilant and know how to detect, avoid and report utility scams,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Mike Doran, “Our employees care about our customers’ safety, and we don’t mind waiting for our customers to ask questions, call us back on our customer service line, request to see company-issued photo ID badges, and verify that we are legitimate utility representatives conducting legitimate utility business. We believe it’s worth the peace of mind for our customers.” Pennsylvania American Water officials want to remind people of common techniques used by scammers: Scammers may text, call or email utility customers asking for immediate payment to avoid service disconnection. Utilities will never send a single notification to a customer within one hour of a service interruption, and they never will ask their customers to make payments with a pre-paid debit card, gift card, or any form of cryptocurrency. Pennsylvania American Water service personnel wear uniforms, drive company-branded vehicles, and wear photo identification badges with the company’s logo. Residents are urged to take the time to ask for and examine the photo identification badge whenever an individual claiming to be a utility worker arrives at their home or business. Pennsylvania American Water does not accept payment at a customer’s house. Customers with any suspicions should call 9-1-1, or Pennsylvania American Water’s customer service center at 1-800-565-7292. Customers who suspect that they have been victims of fraud or who feel threatened during contact with a scammer should contact their local utility company or law enforcement authorities. The Federal Trade Commission’s website also provides additional information about protecting personal information and other information regarding impostor scams. Follow Pennsylvania American Water on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for scam awareness tips throughout the week. Customers can also visit www.utilitiesunited.org for more information and tips on how customers can protect themselves from impostor utility scams and follow along with UUAS on Twitter and Facebook.

  23. YORK COUNTY, Pa. — A York Township man is accused of assaulting a pregnant woman. The incident occurred Saturday afternoon during an altercation between James Kreeger, 45, and the victim. Police say Kreeger started yelling at the woman for questioning him about his Instagram accounts. He then broke a fan by banging it against something before “flipping out” when the victim picked up his phone to check something. As the woman — who is seven months pregnant — tried to talk to Kreeger, he got up, sat on her pelvic area while straddling her and allegedly choked her for approximately three seconds. Kreeger is also accused of punching the victim’s right side of her face and choking her a second time. Police say the woman called a friend after the assault and said she wanted to go to an urgent care because she was “very afraid for her baby,” according to charging documents. Her friend advised that she maybe wait until Kreeger goes to work Sunday so he doesn’t try to hurt her again. The victim went to urgent care the next day and reported the assault to police. According to police, the woman was taken to York Hospital after her urgent care visit and met with a Safe Nurse for an evaluation of possible injuries to her and her unborn child. Kreeger has been charged with aggravated assault of an unborn child, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, strangulation and harassment, court documents show. View the full article

  26. According to a congressional aide and an administration official, the Trump administration has requested an approximate 400% increase in the amount South Korea contributes to the maintenance of United States forces in Korea -- the "Special Measures Agreement," CNN reported on Thursday. (Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has refused to confirm this figure, simply saying, "we have asked for a significant increase in the cost-sharing for our deployed troops.") After last year's talks ended with a one-year agreement, rather than the longer agreements successfully negotiated nine times starting in 1991, it was expected that the talks would be difficult -- but this increase is not the start of a serious negotiation.
