Legislation designed to improve the knowledge of history and civics in the Commonwealth was the topic of a press conference held in Harrisburg on Monday. Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wyoming) is the co-sponsor of House Bill 1858, which would require high school students to pass a test on basic facts of U.S. history and civics taken from the United States Citizenship Civics Test – the same test all immigrants applying for U.S. citizenship must pass.

The move signals the end of a nine-month fiscal impasse in Pennsylvania. The 30 billion dollar spending plan allows money to flow to schools, corrections, and agriculture programs that had been held hostage during negotiations.
