A Quick Look at Bob Brady's 2011 FEC Reports

Normally I stay out of Philadelphia politics. When I was going over the quarterly FEC reports for the collar counties I dipped into the reports for Philadelphia’s congressional representatives. A few things surprised me so I’ve done a little more digging. Here are some observations on the reports from 1st district Congressman Bob Brady’s campaign, from the post-general 2010 election, year end 2010, first, second, and third quarter 2011 reports. To provide some context, I found a Dec. 20, 2010 article by Brad Bumstead and Mike Wereschagin in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ...

Statewide Primaries Get Steamy

The big question is will we get a Democrat candidate from Eastern Pennsylvania or Western Pennsylvania in the high-stakes Attorney General race? The next two questions automatically follow. Will either Dan McCaffery or former Congressman Pat Murphy or Lackawanna’s Kathleen Kane get the nomination when the Democrat State Committee meets Jan. 14 to decide? The State’s Democrats from west of the Susquehanna always seem to be united when it comes to decisions such as this, though none of them has announced as of now. Obviously a powerful draw, Dan McCaffery showed he had the ...

Congressman Bob Brady introduces bill to prevent state legislatures from overturning/superseding local governments’ gun control legislation
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) tonight introduced a bill that would prevent a state legislature from overturning/superseding ‎a local government's gun control legislation. The bill would apply to major cities with populations of 500 thousand or more. As an example Brady explains that the bill would prevent the Pennsylvania State legislature from passing a law that would prevent a gun ban passed by Philadelphia. The bill would specifically “preempt State laws preventing a major city from regulating firearm-related conduct in the city that occurs in or affects interstate or foreign commerce.” In 2008, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court threw out Philadelphia ordinances that included limiting gun buys and banned assault weapons. But, Brady says, “In light of the carnage in Orlando, Americans want movement on gun control not just another moment of silence.“    ###

Brady announces final appropriation for the Delaware River Deepening project
Brady announces final appropriation for the Delaware River Deepening project Philadelphia --- Congressman Bob Brady (D. PA) announced today that the final Federal portion for the $364 project to deepen the Delaware River main channel has been appropriated in the House's Energy and Water Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2017. Brady has fought for the project since he first came to Congress in 1998 in spite of multiple attempts to remove funding from spending bills. And, when the project was revived after over a ten year delay he reached out to Vice President Biden to help ensure that the funding wasn’t redirected to New York. A deeper channel will allow for larger ships to serve the Port of Philadelphia, making the port more competitive and help create thousands of new jobs. According to the Maritime Exchange for the Delaware River and Bay the economic impact of cargo activity on the Delaware River Port Complex equates to: $53 billion  contribution to the regional economy; $7.
