The majority of that will come from revamping the state’s contracting system. By using best practices and what’s known as “reverse auctioning,” Wolf anticipates saving $100 million.

    By Mike Dunn PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Daycare providers in Philadelphia may soon be getting a bit of a break on the fees they must pay the city under a bill approved by City Council this past week. Right now, daycare centers with ten or more children must pay a $125 fee for a city permit, and daycare groups of any size must pay $250 in order to appeal a permit rejection.

  • NFL draft watch: Needs that teams should pass on in Round 1 (Shutdown Corner)

    27 Feb 2015 | 1:35 pm
    It’s time to revive the need-vs.-BPA (best player available) debate, with an eye on this year’s draft. I was stunned at how many comments, Twitter remarks and emails I got after my post-combine mock draft that were something along the lines of “[insert their favorite team] won’t do that … they have bigger needs.” Knowing that my mock will be torn to shreds after the first round of free agency, I won’t defend the picks — but rather my method. Think of it this way: If you were to go back and do a redraft from three, four, seven, heck, 10 years ago, what are you going to do?
