SRCC slams hypocrite Dems
The Senate Republican Campaign Committee criticized Sens. Tina Tartaglione, Jimmy Dillon, Nick Miller and Marty Flynn for voting against Lifeline Scholarships, despite having attended Catholic schools. The scholarships were included in the Senate budget, but Gov. Josh Shapiro broke his promise and vetoed them. The SRCC noted that Tartaglione attended St. Martin of Tours and St. Basil and Dillon attended Our Lady of Calvary and Holy Ghost Prep.
“Senate Democrats, House Democrats and Gov. Shapiro did the children of Pennsylvania a great disservice by stopping the Pennsylvania Award for Student Success,” said SRCC executive director Cody Harbaugh. “Subjecting children to failing schools with no other options is wrong. But worse yet are the Senate and House Democrats who opposed this legislation, when they went to private school themselves or send their kids to private school. Their hypocrisy is a slap in the face to families in underperforming school districts. These politicians are self-serving, prioritizing their own family’s education over the education of others. These hypocrites represent the worst of Harrisburg.” ••
Gallagher cheers school district funding
State Rep. Pat Gallagher applauded the passage of a $714 million increase for education funding in the budget that contains no tax increases. The School District of Philadelphia will receive $1.7 billion, a $119.6 million and 7.6% increase from the previous fiscal year. The budget also expands the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, but does not include private school vouchers following opposition by House Democrats and a veto by Gov. Josh Shapiro, who had said he supported vouchers until criticism from teachers unions.
“Let’s be clear, there’s still much more work to do,” Gallagher said. “We must keep pushing forward to invest in crumbling infrastructure, give justice to survivors of sexual abuse, raise the minimum wage to support all workers and their families, pass commonsense gun measures to protect our communities at large and the Fairness Act to protect LGBTQ+ individuals from discrimination. This budget has gotten these difficult conversations and negotiations started. It’s time to invest in our commonwealth and improve the lives of Pennsylvanians.” ••

Conflict resolution in school
Legislation introduced by state Rep. Anthony Bellmon and House Speaker Joanna McClinton passed the House, 102-101, and is headed to the Senate for consideration. All Democrats voted for the bill. All Republicans voted against it. The bill would require public schools to provide instruction on conflict resolution to all students. The instruction would include topics such as skills of conflict resolution; respect for different cultures, races and beliefs; effectively managing emotions; and how to resolve differences peacefully.
“In areas across the commonwealth, such as Philadelphia, we’re seeing far too many young lives taken by gun violence,” Bellmon said. “It’s imperative that our children know that conflicts can be resolved in a non-violent way, and that’s why I introduced this bill that can help prevent unnecessary violence and even save lives.” ••

Hohenstein cheers budget
State Rep. Joe Hohenstein (D-177th dist.) applauded passage of a $714 million increase for education funding in a budget that has no tax increases.
“Pennsylvania has passed a budget that prioritizes education, expands the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program and paves the way for a brighter future,” Hohenstein said. “The passage of this budget signifies a significant step forward, but let us be clear, this budget is just the beginning. With Commonwealth Court’s decision, it is absolutely clear that we are failing our students. It’s up to us to build on this foundation and deliver a high-quality public education. We must fight for equitable funding that ensures we have the resources necessary to provide a first-class education to every student.”
The School District of Philadelphia will receive $1.7 billion, a $119.6 million and 7.6% increase from the previous fiscal year.
“But let us not forget that there is more work to be done beyond education. That includes justice for survivors of sexual abuse, a minimum wage increase, commonsense gun measures and the Fairness Act to protect LGBTQ+ individuals from discrimination. We must invest in our crumbling infrastructure, improve access to affordable health care and champion renewable energy to protect our environment and generations to come. We need to restore the early childhood education and childcare funding that we had originally passed in the budget to support working families. While we celebrate this budget and the victory for education funding, let us remember that there is much more work to do to bring true equity and deliver on our promise of a high-quality education for every student.”
The House passed the same bill previously passed by the Republican-controlled Senate that included $100 for school vouchers, money that Gov. Josh Shapiro said he supported. Shapiro, though, caved to the teachers unions and double-crossed Senate Republicans by vetoing the money for vouchers.

A study to help prevent malignant mesothelioma
Researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple Health were recently awarded a three-year, $1.2 million grant to study sulforaphane, a promising cancer preventive agent derived from broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, for the prevention of malignant mesothelioma.
“Because advanced cancers such as malignant mesothelioma develop resistance to therapy, there is an urgent need for preventive measures,” said Joseph R. Testa, a professor in the Cancer Prevention and Control research program and chief of Genomic Medicine at Fox Chase, the project’s principal investigator.
“Cancer preventive interventions employing relatively nontoxic chemopreventive ‘epigenetic modifiers’ have been proposed as a logical approach.”
The grant is funded through the National Cancer Institute’s PREVENT Cancer Preclinical Drug Development Program. Dr. Yuwaraj Kadariya, an assistant research professor in Testa’s lab, will serve as co-investigator on the sulforaphane project.
Margie Clapper, co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control research program, serves as principal investigator of Fox Chase’s role as a prime contractor of the PREVENT program. Fox Chase is one of seven prime contractors in the United States participating in assessing the efficacy of preventive agents and the establishment of intermediate endpoint biomarkers.
Malignant mesothelioma is an incurable cancer of the mesothelial lining that surrounds the internal organs. About 80% of cases occur in the chest; of these, asbestos exposure is the most common cause. However, there is often a long delay, frequently decades, between the time of exposure and the development of cancer.
There are no preventive interventions available for people who are at risk of developing malignant mesothelioma.
The award will fund studies assessing the ability of sulforaphane and Avmacol, a commercially available broccoli seed and sprout extract, to prevent the formation of asbestos-associated malignant mesothelioma.
The first goal is to see if these agents prevent or significantly reduce the incidence and progression of malignant mesothelioma and prolong survival. The second is to identify biomarkers in banked tissue specimens to further assess the effectiveness of the substances. Finally, the researchers will determine if it is safe to administer sulforaphane and Avmacol for a long time.
“This is the beginning of translational research in malignant mesothelioma,” said Kadariya, who added that mesothelioma is the second-most common cancer behind lung cancer in people with asbestos exposure. “This compound could be a game changer for asbestos-exposed people.”
Testa and Kadariya will be working in collaboration with Dr. Joseph Friedberg, Thoracic Surgeon-in-Chief at Temple Health. Friedberg conducted research on sulforaphane prior to coming to Temple.
The researchers hope that success in these preclinical studies in an animal model will lead to clinical trials in humans. These would include asbestos workers, individuals with a genetic predisposition to mesothelioma due to a heritable mutation in the BAP1 gene and family members and others who have developed mesothelioma years after washing the asbestos-laden work clothes of occupationally exposed patients. ••
