Auditor General DePasquale criticizes lax accountability and spending in Pittsburgh Public Schools travel audit

Despite class only having been back in session for two days, Pittsburgh Public Schools is heading into the new school year with another unfavorable audit from Auditor General Eugene DePasquale.

At the end of May, a number of Pittsburgh Public Schools officials, namely Superintendent Anthony Hamlet landed in hot water over an unauthorized trip to Cuba. A month later, a different audit found that the district had failed to secure roughly $2 million in reimbursements due to poor record keeping.

Pennsylvania Democrats raise the alarm on the future of the Affordable Care Act

Pennsylvania Democrats raise the alarm on the future of the Affordable Care Act

Cindy Jennings, a mom of two from Lancaster County, says she never realized the struggle that many Americans face in securing health insurance until she had to do it for herself. That realization came when Jennings, a full-time caregiver for her disabled son Matt, was kicked off her husband’s plan following their divorce.

 

Jennings said her saving grace came in the form of Pennsylvania’s Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act in February 2015, which gave her the insurance necessary to detect precancerous polyps before they developed into cancer. But Jennings, along with others, worry that the protections provided in the Affordable Care Act may soon vanish if a 20-state lawsuit to upend the law is successful.
