Gov Unveils New Budget This Week: AP Penn. Headlines

AP PA Headlines 2/2/20

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf’s sixth budget proposal is coming out Tuesday, and the Democrat is expected to seek more money for education and emphasize the urgency of addressing student-loan debt and cleaning up lead and asbestos in schools. The plan could exceed $35 billion. Many details remain under wraps, although the governor’s office has rolled out some features. Wolf himself said his spending blueprint for the 2020-21 fiscal year that starts July 1 would hold the line on taxes and contain “no surprises.” Wolf is generally hemmed in by the Legislature’s Republican majorities, which have blocked his most expansive proposals.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A father who claimed his 4-year-old son was killed in a home invasion robbery has now been charged with involuntary manslaughter because the boy apparently shot himself with a gun he found in the Philadelphia home. Authorities say 28-year-old Edward Williams is also charged with child endangerment and numerous other counts. His bail was set at $2 million, and it’s unknown if he’s retained an attorney. Williams told police he and the children were in the house when robbers invaded their home. In fact, authorities say, Williams was apparently sleeping when the shooting occurred, and it’s believed the child found the gun in a bedroom closet.

READING, Pa. (AP) ) — The owner of an award-winning organic dairy in Pennsylvania that abruptly closed its doors last fall is accused of milking investors to the tune of nearly $60 million. Philip Riehl is the majority owner of Trickling Springs Creamery. Federal prosecutors say he ran a long-running fraud scheme that preyed on hundreds of Amish and Mennonite investors. Riehl was charged this week with securities and wire fraud. A message seeking comment was left with his attorney Friday. The Chambersburg-based creamery opened in 2001 and produced milk, cream, butter, ice cream, yogurt and cheese. The dairy’s products were sold up and down the East Coast.
