Rally encourages Pennsylvania budget lawsuit, Hammonton kicks off Third Thursday efforts

    Good morning, Feeders! Temps are pushing the three-digit range today, so Lizz Fiedler is checking in with the Heatline to find out who’s calling in and what people’s top questions are during oppressive heat waves.

    In the middle of all that heat, Tom MacDonald will be at City hall where Professionals for Progress will call on Philadelphia to sue Gov. Tom Corbett for his budget cuts.

    As Lizz follows up on a story in New Jersey dating back to 9/11, Peter Crimmins is heading to Hammonton. The New Jersey town is kicking off its Third Thursday efforts with an outdoor painting event.

    Maiken Scott will take a look at legislation that would create stricter oversight for New Jersey home-schoolers. She’ll see how that bill compares with existing regulations in our area.
