CA Issues 605,000 Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants:
Just over a year ago, Assembly Bill 60 became the law of the land in California. That meant illegal aliens could apply for a state's driver's license. In the first six months of implementation, almost 400,000 driver's licenses were issued under the new law. Now the California DMV is reporting a total of 605,000 licenses issued to illegals under AB 60.

Rep. Vereb leaving Pa. House of Representatives

Mike Vereb is putting politics behind him in a big way.

The five-term Pennsylvania state legislator resigned last month as chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee after his party's disastrous showing in the November General Election. (Republicans lost every countywide race.)

Now he's leaving the state House of Representatives, announcing Tuesday that he will not seek re-election to another term in Montgomery County's 150th House District, a very safe Republican district that he could have held for the next decade or more.

It's a dramatic about-face for what looked like a promising political career for the retired police officer.

Vereb issued the following press release today:
HARRISBURGState Rep. Mike Vereb (R-Montgomery) today announced he will not seek another two-year term serving the residents of Pennsylvania’s 150th Legislative District.

“I can’t thank the residents of the 150th District enough for trusting me with the opportunity to represent them for a decade,” Vereb said.  “I’m proud of what we accomplished.”

Vereb, currently serving his fifth term, first took office as a state representative in 2007 amidst a wave of reform.  He served on a bipartisan commission established that year by the speaker of the House to bring transparency and accountability to the institution’s procedures.

Vereb served two terms as House Republican Caucus Secretary, a leadership position earned when he was selected by his colleagues.

During his tenure in the House, four bills Vereb introduced were signed into law.  When his sudden cardiac arrest prevention legislation was signed into law in 2012, Vereb helped make Pennsylvania the first state in the nation to pass a law protecting its student athletes from this threat.

Vereb sponsored a law giving crime victims a voice in the parole process by allowing them to be heard at parole hearings.  Another law he introduced strengthened penalties against coaches and other sports officials who sexually prey on youth athletes.

Vereb also sponsored a law to protect crime victims and their families against re-victimization by their criminal aggressors.

Vereb also served as co-chairman of the Basic Education Funding Commission, which developed a fair and reasonable formula to distribute state education dollars among Pennsylvania school districts.  He serves as chairman of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) Safety and Security Committee, a voting member of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency and as chairman of the commission’s Criminal Justice Advisory Committee.

Vereb helped usher the Commonwealth’s recent transportation funding plan through the state House and secured funding for several local bridge projects, including the replacement of Betzwood Bridge.

“When my term ends later this year, I’ll look forward to new opportunities and challenges,” Vereb said.  “I still have a year left to serve and I plan to make it a good one.”

Gov. Wolf vetoes no-tax-hike budget for third time

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf said Tuesday he will use his line-item veto power on the $30.8 billion, no-tax-hike budget passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature. So the big question today is why didn't Wolf do this on July 1 when the first budget was sent to him by the Legislature? The answer: Wolf wants to spend billions more on liberal programs and raise taxes on working Pennsylvania families so he held the budget hostage for the past six months in the hopes of forcing the Legislature to raise taxes.

His ploy didn't work. So here we are - six months into the new fiscal year - without a budget, thanks to Wolf and his far-left staffers who want to spend more than the state takes in and pay back the labor unions that put Wolf into office last year.

There's a great quote in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review from Republican House Majority Leader Dave Reed, putting the Wolf budget fiasco in perspective: “While I am appreciative that the Governor will finally release some of his hostages and send some of the monies out to our schools and human service programs; it is disturbing to realize that his partial veto is reflective of his demand for a higher sales or income tax to spend even more money."

Gov. Wolf vetoes Republican budget, will release funds for schools
