While I try to get myself sufficiently up to speed to make some longer posts here, let me link to a couple of blogs that are brainstorming some policy ideas for Philadelphia and Pennsylvania where I’ve tried to chip in to the conversation:
Young Philly Politics has a discussion of how a major investment in mass transit expansion could spur economic activity. Having spent five years in New York, I’m all for beefing up public transit in this town.
Joe Hoeffel proposes that initiative, referendum, and recall should be implemented in Pennsylvania. I am decidedly less enthusiastic about the idea.
