A bill to better protect children in child custody situations, has been signed into law by Gov. Josh Shapiro, officials confirmed Tuesday.

Kayden’s Law, years in the making, received final passage by the House last month and went to Gov. Josh Shapiro’s desk.

Officials said a ceremonial signing of the bill into law most likely happen in the coming weeks.

In honor of Kayden Mancuso, a seven-year-old from Lower Makefield Township, who was killed in August 2018 by her biological father during a court-ordered, unsupervised visit granted following a year-long custody dispute.

State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-Bucks) said Kayden’s Law wll:

  • Strengthen the current factors that judges must consider in making custody and visitation decisions, to make it clear that the most important issue is the protection of the child.
  • Ensure that if there is a finding by the court of an ongoing risk of abuse, that any custody order includes safety conditions and restrictions necessary, including supervised visitation, to protect the child.
  • Encourage the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to implement an annual educational and training program for judges and relevant court personnel on child abuse, adverse childhood experiences, domestic violence, and its impact on children.

“Today is a great day.  Today we are one step closer to protecting children in custody cases.  This has been a years-long collaborative effort led by the tireless advocacy of Kayden’s mom Kathy Sherlock, along with family law advocates and experts.  Kayden’s Law is finally headed to the Governor for signature and, when signed into law, will save children’s lives by ensuring the safety of the child is paramount in custody cases and that no child will ever again be placed alone in a dangerous environment,” Santarsiero said when the bill jumped over its final hurdles.

He also thanked his Senate colleague Lisa Baker (R) and state representatives Perry Warren (D Bucks) Tina Davis (D-Bucks) for shepherding the House version of the bill.

Falls Approves Just Under $79 Million 2024 Budget, Millage Held at 8.97

Published

Falls Township will maintain its current municipal tax rate in 2024, while continuing to provide the services residents have come to appreciate.

During Tuesday’s meeting, the Falls Supervisors unanimously adopted its 2024 budget. The 2024 spending plan holds the line on the current 8.97 millage rate.

As part of the spending plan, property owners will continue to pay $269.10 for an assessment of $30,000 under the township’s 2024 budget. The owner of a similarly assessed Bristol Township property, by comparison, paid $1,069.40 in local taxes for 2023, said officials.

Unlike neighboring communities, Falls residents are not assessed for trash and leaf pickup.

Even with keeping taxes flat, the township is planning several upgrades in 2024. Falls has earmarked $500,000 to construct a new playground with wheelchair accessibility at Falls Township Community Park Phase II. The equipment, which is geared for youth ages 2 to 12, will replace the existing playground and will allow for all children to play, particularly those with disabilities, as well as kids on the autism spectrum.

The 2024 budget also includes a new Falls Cares blight remediation program.

Next year’s budget allocates $34.7 million for the design and construction of an expanded and renovated municipal campus, which is expected to be completed in December 2024, said officials,

“It’s been a long time coming,” Supervisors Chairman Jeff Dence said of the municipal building project, of which construction began in fall 2023.

The budget also allocates $2.4 million to cover several culvert replacement projects and drainage projects, Falls announced also.

In addition, Falls plans to spend $470,000 on four new police vehicles, computer equipment, firearms training and supplies; and $469,700 to replace seven aging pieces of equipment in the Public Works department.

For decades, Falls officials have worked hard to do more with less. For every $1 paid in taxes, Falls Township receives just 4 cents. Yet, year after year the township sees spiraling pension contribution increases. Over the last decade, the township has seen its pension obligation nearly triple. Pension contributions surged from $1.3 million in 2012 to $2.6 million in 2017, with over $3 million projected for next year, all while the state contributions have remained relatively flat, a press release explains.

The township’s Earned Income Tax, which was enacted Jan. 1, 2023, is expected to contribute $7 million to the township’s general fund in 2024, the township

In all, $78,821,601 is projected to be spent in 2024, said officials.
