PDSITELOGO2Baer: Could Pa. courts do what lawmakers won’t?

I’m wondering whether Pennsylvania’s judiciary is on the edge of a new era, one in which our state government could actually improve.

Yes, judiciary is just one branch of a troubled tree. And it hasn’t been disease-free. But consider it in the context of the operational whole.

Balancing road repair, police service

State government faces many tough choices as it works very hard to strike a balance between meeting critical needs and keeping the burden on taxpayers as fair as possible. One such tough balancing act involves addressing law enforcement needs across the state and keeping our highway and bridge system in the best shape possible.

Major resurfacing project to begin on Schuylkill Expressway

A major highway connecting the suburbs to the city is about to get very busy with construction crews. The Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) will undergo a major asphalt resurfacing that will impact the commute of tens of thousands of drivers every day.

A better way to manage how we get around

Urban mobility is undergoing its starkest transformation since the first Model T rolled off the assembly line more than a century ago. Emerging services like car-, bike- and ride-sharing have provided city dwellers with a vast — and often confusing — array of options for getting around. And it’s too early to predict the impact of technologies that are on the horizon, such as driverless cars.
