Responding to Senate Republicans Regarding Call Center Closings

first_imgResponding to Senate Republicans Regarding Call Center Closings By: Governor Tom Wolf June 15, 2016 – The Department provided an addendum to the May 26th document to the Labor and Industry Committee staff at the request of staff. November 30, 2016 May 26, 2016 – The first of six documents was shared with Senate Republicans. The document outlined the need for reauthorization and historical expenditure data.See all documentation noted in this post.May 31, 2016 – The Department met with Senate Republican Appropriations staff to discuss reauthorization. October 21, 2016 – At the request of the Senate Labor and Industry Committee staff, the Department provided a final 1-page document noting the differences between Senate Bill 1335 and House Bill 2375, which included the additional oversight and accountability provisions that were included in the compromise language passed by the House of Representatives. This is the sixth document provided.All told, countless meetings were held with Senate Republican members and staff, and significant documentation justifying reauthorization as well as the ramifications of letting SIIF sunset was provided. You can see this documentation here. I will also note that Secretary Manderino attended the voting meeting of the Senate Labor and Industry Committee when it reported Senate Bill 1335, a companion to House Bill 2375, and answered members’ questions at that meeting.Regarding the decision to close specific call centers, the decision was made based on a series of variables, including performance, capacity, efficiency, and ability of the centers to handle increased call volume.I urge Senate Republicans to take action on reauthorization of SIIF at the earliest possible date so that the impact to those facing furloughs can be mitigated to the greatest extent possible.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf September 21, 2016 – The House Labor and Industry Committee held an informational hearing to discuss this topic. Secretary Manderino and the Department’s Unemployment Compensation Programs Deputy Secretary testified. October 14, 2016 – An email was sent by the Department to the Leadership Staff of all four caucuses, both thanking all of them for their cooperation on this issue and willingness to work with the Department on this topic, and included a 4-page document that detailed both the additional need of funding under House Bill 2375, and the impacts the Department would face should no funding be granted, 1 year of funding, or 2 years of funding be granted. The email states, “As we approach the final weeks of legislative session. And, as efforts to finalize an extension of Act 34 funding continue, we felt it was important to inform all of you of the impacts that the Department expects to recognize at the various durations of funding recently discussed. This information is being provided so that all of you are not caught off guard by any changes implemented by the Department.” The attachment to this e-mail represents the fifth document provided. The Blog For more than six months, my administration has been working extensively with the legislature to fund the Service Infrastructure Improvement Fund, which supports technology upgrades, benefit modernization, and unemployment compensation call centers among other things.However, the Republican Senate made a conscious decision to not vote on House Bill 2375 — which would have funded the system — and thereby decided to make it harder for working class people who have lost their jobs to pay their bills, put food on the table, and find new opportunities.Their failure to pass House Bill 2375 will also result in more than 500 call center staff members being laid off.Every single unemployment insurance payment that is delayed and call that is not answered is unfortunately due to the lack of action by the Republican Senate and those who failed to pass this bill before the legislature broke for the holidays.I’m urging Senate Republicans to take legislative action to fund these call centers at the earliest possible date.As Senate Republicans are aware, the Department of Labor and Industry has been engaged with the legislature in a dialogue regarding Service and Infrastructure Improvement Fund (SIIF) reauthorization since April, and the Majority Leader’s Office committed to my Administration – twice – that House Bill 2375 would be called up for a vote on third consideration.On the last Session day in October, the bill was not called up for a vote, as committed. Despite not following through on that commitment, my administration received a second assurance from the Majority Leader’s Office that the bill would be called up for a vote on November 16th.Therefore, the Department delayed furlough notices. On November 16th, the bill was marked for a vote on third and final consideration. And once again, the commitment was not honored. The Senate adjourned without voting on House Bill 2375, and more than 500 families have had their lives turned upside down.The Department has been transparent and proactive in providing information to the legislature. Therefore, I am providing a timeline of the events related to reauthorization generally and specifically as they relate to information provided to Senate Republicans:January 7, 2016 – The Department sent the first annual SIIF report (due no later than June 30th of each calendar year) to the Labor and Industry Committees. The report had not been submitted under the previous Administration. When the Department became aware of this requirement, it immediately complied. August 22, 2016 – At the request of the Senate Labor and Industry Committee staff, the Department shared a condensed document summarizing the prior two documents sent. Additionally, the Department was asked to describe the “bottom line” if reauthorization did not occur and its exit strategy. Both are contained in this document. SHARE Email Facebook Twitter May 9, 2016 – Secretary Manderino and Department staff met with Senator Baker. Secretary Manderino provided the Chairwoman with detailed information about SIIF expenditures and discussed both the progress of modernization efforts and the need for reauthorization. April 2016 – The Department had its first meeting with Senate Labor and Industry Committee staff to discuss reauthorization. The Department continued discussions over the post budget session break with all four caucuses. This included meeting with House and Senate Leadership, Appropriations chairs and/or staff, as well as the Labor and Industry Committees to continue expressing the need for reauthorization. September 22, 2016 – The Department provided all Senate Labor and Industry Committee members with a fourth document. This 10-page document outlined both how SIIF funds have been spent and how the Department planned to spend funds moving forward.last_img read more

Mandate roundup: EAPF, MSCI, Isle of Wight, BNP Paribas

first_imgThe nearly £2.5bn (€3.4bn) Environment Agency Pension Fund (EAPF) has selected MSCI’s World Low Carbon Target Index as a benchmark for its £280m allocation to passive equities.The scheme, technically part of the UK’s Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) system, is now a founding investor in a Legal & General Investment Management institutional passive equity fund based on MSCI’s index.The pension fund, which provides benefits to employees of the UK’s department charged with managing and protecting environmental matters, will now track its entire allocation to passive equities via the index, which MSCI said reflects a lower carbon exposure by having overweight allocations to companies with low, or potentially low, carbon emissions.Mark Mansley, CIO at the EAPF, said the scheme saw climate change as an investment risk issue and thus required a benchmark that took a risk-based approach rather than simple exclusion policies. “We engaged with the industry to find a solution and felt MSCI understood the needs of institutional investors when they developed the Low Carbon Target approach,” he said.In other news, the Isle of Wight Pension Scheme has awarded a mandate to BNP Paribas Securities Services for custody services.The nearly £400m local government pension scheme for the Isle of Wight appointed the French bank to manage global custody, investment accounting, cash management and foreign exchange services.The pension scheme made the appointment using the LGPS framework, which pre-selected five custodians to cut down the tender period for the government schemes.last_img read more

A fireworks safety message from state representative Randy Frye

first_imgGreensburg, Ind. — This week, we celebrate our country’s 241st birthday. This time of year always brings out the patriot in us all, with fervent pride in the country we call home. It has become a tradition to memorialize this holiday with parades, cookouts and fireworks. As we celebrate, let’s remember to put safety first.It is in our nation’s blood to celebrate Independence Day with pomp and circumstance. Just one year after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia held a massive celebration with the ringing of bells, a dinner, music, and toasts to each state within the union. The day ended with a grand finale of red, white and blue fireworks ignited for each of our nation’s 13 states. Boston also held a fireworks celebration on July 4, 1777, and since this day we have used fireworks as a way to remember the birth of our nation.With many communities and families hosting Fourth of July celebrations of their own, here are just a few safety reminders as we observe our nation’s birthday.The first thing to remember is that you must be 18 years of age in order to purchase fireworks. Also, minors must have an adult present when using or possessing fireworks.When it comes to lighting fireworks, you must either be on your own property, on the property of someone who has given you permission to use fireworks, or at a location designated by the Indiana State Fire Marshall for discharging fireworks.If you happen to live within a neighborhood, near buildings or trees, please use caution when aiming and setting off your fireworks.If you plan on setting off fireworks before or after the actual Fourth of July holiday, it can only be done between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. There is an exception for Independence Day; however it only extends the time to midnight. It is important to check with local officials, as some town ordinances may be more restrictive.As a firefighter, I responded to countless fireworks accidents that could have been prevented by taking some simple precautions: wear shoes in the vicinity of fireworks; light off one firework at a time and quickly move away; only use them outdoors and away from buildings, vehicles and trees; never relight a “dud” firework; and always have an adult present when lighting off fireworks. Keep in mind that alcohol and fireworks don’t mix. Let’s also not forget about our pets. Keep animals inside to avoid exposure to the loud booms and pops.I hope all of you enjoy celebrating the Fourth of July, but keep in the mind the reason why we have our freedom and the countless lives that have been lost since 1776 so that we remain free.If you have any questions, our local fire and police departments are a good resource. You can also reach out to my office by phone at 317-234-3827 or email h67@iga.in.gov.last_img read more

Beat writers offer split predictions for Syracuse-Pitt outcome

first_img Published on February 12, 2014 at 4:07 pm Stephen Bailey: Pittsburgh 63, Syracuse 61Streak stopperTalib Zanna and Pittsburgh take advantage of SU’s lack of center depth. Assuming Baye Moussa Keita is unable to play, Jerami Grant will have serious trouble holding his own in the middle of the Orange’s 2-3 zone. That, combined with the crowd at the Pete and the craft of Jamie Dixon, will be just enough to end Syracuse’s undefeated start.David Wilson: Syracuse 57, Pittsburgh 44Offensive offenseBoth teams play ugly, but the top-ranked Orange always makes the plays in the end. The No. 25 Panthers’ best chance is to blow out SU, which they aren’t capable of. Lamar Patterson has fallen back to earth — he’s shot worse than 30 percent in three of his last four games — and Pitt’s best win this season is a narrow loss to Syracuse.Trevor Hass: Syracuse 60, Pittsburgh 54Pitt-y the FoolsRakeem Christmas steps up and keeps Talib Zanna in check as Syracuse passes one of its toughest tests yet. Despite the hostile environment, an injured frontcourt and a strong performance from Lamar Patterson, the Orange pulls out another close win. The Panthers don’t have the personnel to stay with both C.J. Fair and Jerami Grant. If one of them has a rough game, the other one will likely go off.
