The real issue is that the Pa. Assembly wants the last word as law makers. There Votes on HB 1952 and HB 631 to make ACT 10 was them all agreeing with no opposition voting or debates or public hearings with understand – a rush through law straight to the governor’s deck shading that public safety is the main thing of the main thing.
The Pa. Assembl wants the PASC to go back to the old days of violating the rights of RSO’s and putting them all away – out the way no matter what it takes.
Cases like Muniz – Reed – Nieman – Butler – Ray J.B. – are in the way of the Pa. Assembly. The Pa. Assembly re-wrote ML two and took out all the punitive stuff and hope that the PASC will look at the New law as Civil in nature with no punishment in it.
But the PASC will ask one question – “What will happen to people that violate this new law?”
If the answer is -JAIL TIME- that makes the law criminal
The Pa Assembly want a ML to look civil up front – but they apply punishment at the end of it. Jail in a punishment. Punitive in all definitions.
that is the standard – the end result of ACT 10 is what if violated? Any one has the answer?
