SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Again Asks House GOP Leaders to Advance Domestic Violence Legislation May 01, 2018 Press Release, Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today again asked House Republican leaders to advance a package of stalled Senate bills that will improve protections for victims of domestic violence. Most importantly, Governor Wolf wants to sign Senate Bill 501, which will keep firearms away from domestic abusers and protect their victims and others. The bills passed the Senate unanimously on March 21, 2018.“It has been well over a month since these important bills passed the Senate unanimously,” Governor Wolf said. “Domestic abusers are known to use firearms to threaten and claim the lives of their victims and others. The House should act on these bipartisan, commonsense pieces of legislation so I can sign them into law. We must protect victims – spouses and children – of domestic violence and attempt to prevent domestic abusers from escalating their violence in everyday places that result in greater violence. The State House should not waste another opportunity to act on this bipartisan, commonsense legislative package to protect victims and reduce violence.”According to recent research, from 2009 to 2016 in the U.S., there were 156 mass shootings—incidents in which four or more people were shot and killed, not including the shooter. These incidents resulted in 1,187 victims shot: 848 people were shot and killed, and 339 people were shot and injured. The majority of mass shootings—54 percent of cases—were related to domestic or family violence.The Senate’s domestic violence legislation backed by Governor Wolf includes:Senate Bill 501 (Killion) requires that a defendant relinquish all firearms, other weapons, and ammunition upon entry of a Final PFA order and strengthens protections for the timeframe and safekeeping of firearms owned by a domestic abuserSenate Bill 313 (Boscola) allows a domestic violence victim to opt out of a shared phone plan with the abuser with no penalty.Senate Bill 500 (Vulakovich) provides for a law enforcement official to accompany a victim to his or her residence before or during the service of a PFA order.Senate Bill 502 (McGarrigle) allows judges to extend the terms of a PFA order or create an entirely new one if the order is set to expire or has expired while a defendant is incarcerated. The victim would not be required to show that the defendant engaged in a new act of domestic violence that indicates a continued risk of harm.Senate Bill 919 (Haywood, co-sponsored by Sens. Bartolotta and Schwank) allows a resident of a county housing authority to request relocation if they or someone affiliated with them has experienced domestic or sexual violence. The resident must certify their status as a victim of domestic violence. read more
BILL NEAL:10 First of all, and just so you know, I am not at “My spot” for the game so stop looking for me. Second, and let’s be clear about this, WE – ARE – THE – STEELER – NATION…and we ain’t scared of no Baltimore Ravens! Steelers win by 7. Take it to the bank!:09 I see by reading my Pittsburgh Courier last week that I am not the only sportswriter for this historic newspaper that wants to give you Old School Music in verse huh?!?! I am just sayin’.:08 Speaking of “My style,” oops, did I say that out loud? Tell me if you remember the time, no really do you remember… “Remember the Time” by the late great Michael Jackson? Here ya go. “Do you remember when we fell in love. We were young and innocent then, on the phone you and me till three…do you remember girl.” Oh yeah. Just go back and pop that cassette in and while you’re at it remember just how “Bad” “The King of Pop” was and the “Thrill-er” he gave us all. Say what you want, anyway you want, about whatever you want regarding M.J., but one thing was, is and will always be indisputable, he was quite possibly the greatest entertainer of all time. And me, you and “Billie Jean” know “He Rocked Our World.” (Man I am good at this or what.):07 Take whatever position you want on Pitt quarterback Tom Savage, but NFL scouts have him on their radar screen and he certainly has all the tools. Tall, strong arm, good mobility, and heart. You think not? Does the name Joe Flacco ring a bell? Ya said the same thing about him before you ran him out of Pitt. Yes you did…yes you did…oh shut up…you did so!:06 The NFL says goodbye to one of their most colorful figures as Coach “Bum” Phillips dies at age 90. He was anything but a bum and proved his metal against Chuck Noll and the glory Steelers on many occasions. His most famous quote…”Yes, we the Houston Oilers have every intention on going to the Super Bowl…The problem is, the road to the Super Bowl runs through Pittsburgh!”:05 Well, you know they say deaths always come in threes. All you can hope for is you’re not the third. That being said, the Pittsburgh basketball community lost yet another great player. Buzzy Harrison, out of Uniontown, and former Pitt work horse, passed away last week. All I can tell you is he was an absolutely great guy. I mean, a really great guy and if you played against him, you better bring your lunch bucket cause you were going to get worked. Just ask anybody that had that misfortune during the glory years of the Connie Hawkins Summer Basketball League where “Buzzy” was an annual all-star. read more
