Another shady Rendell deal

Despite putting the state in a $3.2 billion hole, Gov. Ed Rendell is still spending your money with little regard.

From a recent Pittsburgh Tribune-Review editorial:
Taxpayers deserve to know much more about Gov. Ed Rendell's signing of a $201 million Department of Education contract for development of controversial high school graduation exams.

Majority Whip Jane Orie of McCandless is among Senate Republican leaders urging Gov. Rendell to withdraw immediately from the seven-year pact with Data Recognition Corp. of Minnesota. Senate Bill 281 would prohibit the department from developing new statewide high school graduation requirements "until the General Assembly specifically appropriates funds" for that purpose
. Read the full editorial at the newspaper's Web site.
