Government Reform, Government That Works, The Blog, Transparency Pennsylvanians need to have confidence that decisions made by their government are the product of a robust competition of ideas, not rewards for the special interests with the deepest pockets.Right now, there are no limits on how much special interests can contribute to candidates.As part of his “Government That Works” Reform Plan, Governor Wolf supports strong campaign finance reform that would for the first time:Place limits on contributions to candidates seeking elected officeImplement aggregate limits for racesPlace sensible restrictions on Political Action Committees (PACs); andStrengthen reporting and disclosure requirements across the board.In addition, this legislation would prohibit the use of campaign funds for personal expenses, including legal fees.Pennsylvania is currently one of only twelve states that impose no contribution limits on individual donors.

COLOMBO (Reuters) – Sikandar Raza closed in on his maiden hundred and put Zimbabwe in sight of a first test victory against Sri Lanka on the third day of their only match at the R Premadasa Stadium on Sunday.The touring side, who also won their maiden one-day international series against Sri Lanka which finished last week, reached 252-6 in their second innings at the close of play for an overall lead of 262 runs.The 31-year-old Raza was unbeaten on 97 for his highest test score and has added 107 for the unbroken seventh wicket with Malcolm Waller, who remained 57 not out.Sri Lankan spin spearhead Rangana Herath (4-85) had helped the hosts to reduce Zimbabwe to 59-5 at one stage but Raza and Peter Moor, who made 40, launched a fightback with a stand of 86 for the sixth wicket.Earlier, Zimbabwe captain and leg-spinner Graeme Cremer (5-125) took his maiden five-wicket haul to help his side to restrict Sri Lanka to 346 after the hosts had resumed on 293-7.Sri Lanka have been hampered by a left hamstring injury to all-rounder Asela Gunaratne, who has been told he needs a recovery period of up to 10 days and will not bowl or field in the remainder of the ongoing Test.
$469.99 TodayYesterday7 days ago30 days ago US$469.99 – EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC Gaming $469.99 NVIDIA revealed its new GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards during E3 2019, revealing the full stack of SUPER cards in the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2080 SUPER. But what did this mean for the current cards? They are all replaced apart from the RTX 2080 Ti, and many have wondered if there will be an RTX 2080 Ti SUPER — the answer is simple: no. During the SUPER reveal event senior vice president of NVIDIA’s PC business Jeff Fisher took to the stage, and during his presentation he asked if any of the press had questions. Well, I did – after being introduced to the RTX 2060/2070/2080 SUPER cards I wanted to know if we’d see a SUPER successor to the RTX 2080 Ti. I asked “will there be a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER” to which Fisher said there “would not be” an RTX 2080 Ti SUPER. I’ve got a slew of content on the new RTX SUPER graphics cards, check it out here: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER in NVLink benchmarked NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Founders Edition review NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Founders Edition review MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X TRIO review Bonus: This is my 19,000th article for TweakTown!
