Grooming: Part of Proposed Child Protection Law.

A series of child protection bills that were crafted over the Jerry Sandusky scandal are moving forward in HarrisburgBucks County State Rep. Kathy Watson sponsored a bill that passed in the House. Watson says, another bill, crafted by State Rep. Scott Petri, includes a ruse used by sexual predators called “grooming.”

“Which is a form of a sexual predator who is giving gifts and doing things came out of Sandusky and some of the things we learned from psychologists and psychiatrists. Truthfully, five years ago, none of us would have put that in the law or even knew about it.”

Watson says, all the bills on children protection should be revisited every five years. Watson is hopeful a general consensus can be agreed upon by both parties on the various child protection bills in the fall. Watson was a guest on the WNPV Program Comment Please By Univest on Friday

Political Watcher: Gov. Corbett’s Initiatives Need Support

The Republicans may have a majority of the State House and Senate, but G.O.P. Governor Tom Corbett might not get any of the legislative priorities he’s been pushing for, according to political watcher, Dr. Terry Madonna.

“I think pensions probably get put off. Transportation and liquor privatization an outside chance. But I’ll tell you what, it is an amazing environment up in Harrisburg right now. Everything I’ve read and all the folks I’ve talked with, there’s more uncertainty that I think I’ve seen in a long, long time.”

Sen. Toomey: Eric Snowden Should Be Prosecuted

Just about every lawmaker in the U-S is calling former N.S.A employee, Edward Snowden, a criminal and a traitor for leaving the country with some of the nation's secrets. U-S Senator Pat Toomey is lining up with many of his colleagues on the Snowden issue. “I think his choice of countries to flee to is very interesting and telling because China and on his way to Russia and we are told he’s on his way to Cuba and then eventually Ecuador. This is a clear path of somebody who isn’t interested in human rights and personal freedom and respect for privacy, obviously, when he would go to these countries.” Toomey says, it’s surprising that this situation happened at the N.S.A because of the high level of oversight at the agency. Toomey was a guest on the AM—Edition this morning with Darryl Berger.
