Benninghoff Says Smart Fiscal Leadership Led to Historic Revenue Returns

May. 01, 2019  Download

House Republicans held the line on state spending over multiple budget cycles, and now those smart fiscal policies are paying off. The House Appropriations Committee says revenue collections for the month of April were more than $4.4 billion, which is $465 million more than the Department of Revenue’s official estimate. For the 2018-19 fiscal year, general fund collections total $29.16 billion year-to-date, which is $828.5 million above the official revenue estimate. Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre & Mifflin) said the good fiscal news for the Commonwealth is the direct result of Republican leadership in efforts to control the growth of state spending and to stand up for taxpayers while the governor has called for tax increases.

Rep. Benninghoff Joins Adoptees in Celebrating Access to Original Birth Certificates

Jan. 22, 2018  Download

Pennsylvania-born adoptees from around the country joined together at the state Capitol on Monday to celebrate their recently restored right to access their original birth certificates, which had been sealed since 1984. Legislation sponsored by Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) reinstated the rights of adult adoptees to apply for and receive a non-certified copy of their original birth certificate in Pennsylvania. Although Benninghoff’s bill became law on Nov. 3, 2016; it was not until Nov. 3, 2017 that the state Department of Health began actually processing those requests. Under previous Pennsylvania law, adoptees could petition the courts for a copy of their original birth certificate; however, that request could have been denied by a judge. Rep. Benninghoff, who also recently received his own birth certificate information through the new law, offered the following comments on how this has helped thousands of Pennsylvania born adoptees to reconnect with their roots.
