Pennsylvania lawmakers have unveiled a three-bill package of legislation that aims to boost the transparency and accountability of the Commonwealth’s state-related universities, which collectively receive more than $560 million of taxpayer dollars annually.  The four universities are Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, Temple, and Lincoln University.  Proposed measures would expand obligations of universities under the state’s Right-to-Know Law, subject universities to the requirements of Pennsylvania’s Ethics Act, and make substantial changes to the structure of the Penn State Board of Trustees.  All three proposals are based on recommendations issued by the state Auditor General in a 2017 performance audit of Penn State.

 

AccuWeather says the stage is set for warmth to overspread much of the northeastern United States with 60-, 70- and 80-degree weather for much of the region to end the week.  Following temperatures averaging 10-20 degrees below normal in recent weeks, the much-anticipated warm-up will feel like a Florida vacation.  The upcoming weather will provide a long-awaited opportunity to get outside and enjoy the spring, whether it’s a walk in the park, a round of golf or lunch outside.  Baseball fans will finally be able to enjoy the game in spring weather conditions.
