Growing Greener program, pollutants market bill strike up feud between admin, House

Growing Greener program, pollutants market bill strike up feud between admin, House

A hearing on an amended, omnibus environmental bill, which includes a nitrogen procurement plan to ease waterway pollution, brought up questions of funding and interbranch cooperation Thursday.

The House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee heard testimony on the bill, SB 799 by Sen. Richard Alloway (R-Franklin). Originally, the bill only set up a procurement program to use public dollars to purchase nitrogen credits from the agricultural industry to keep runoff from heading into the commonwealth’s streams and rivers and into the Chesapeake Bay.

Then, in late January, the Senate amended the bill to include a reauthorization of the Growing Greener program, first set up under former Republican Gov. Tom Ridge in 1999.

Statue of former Philly mayor, police chief scheduled for move — but not for a few years

The controversial Frank Rizzo statue that stands at the steps of the Municipal Services Building Plaza on John F. Kennedy Boulevard between 15th and Broad Streets is not coming down any time soon.

Rather, it is looking like it won’t be moved for another two to three years, according to Mayor Jim Kenney. 

For Kenney, the statue just isn’t a priority right now. He said that he wants to deal with the opioid crisis and education first.
