Subseries 10. Office of Policy Development, Harold Miller

Scope and Content Notes:

The Office of Policy Development (OPD), originally named the Office of Policy and Planning, was established by Executive Order of the Governor on September 18, 1979. Its role was to assist in establishing policies relating to economic development, human services, public safety and other areas, to work closely with Committees of the Cabinet, and to respond to issues that involved more than one agency or programmatic area. Their primary duties were broadly issue related, for example: to develop new program initiatives and suggest changes to existing programs, to assess feasibility of ideas and proposed changes, to assess effectiveness of policies, and monitor federal actions affecting the Commonwealth. In other words, OPD files here can be seen as a foundation under all policies and achievements and are an invaluable resource.

These files, of Harold Miller, Analyst and then Policy Development Director, are voluminous (see also OPD, Plosila) and cover most major issues. The files are organized by the following major topics: Criminal Justice, Human Services, Education and Training, and Economic and Community Development. Specific topics within those areas include, for example: Liquor Control Board, Health care costs, transportation, environment, and welfare reform, to name only a few. The files consist of memoranda, relating information between Governor Thornburgh and Harold Miller, and some from and to Bob Benko, prior Director. Included, in addition, are: analysts reports, letters, books, notes, brochures/pamphlets, statistical data and newspaper clippings. Material within folders is generally chronologically arranged. Again, it must be emphasized that research materials on all topics is extensive and invaluable.

Criminal Justice files include, for example, the following subjects: mandatory sentencing, juvenile offenders, victim services, arson, corrections initiatives and pardons policy.

Human Services files include, for example, the following subjects: homeless initiatives, low-income energy assistance, mortgage assistance, juvenile justice initiatives, teenage pregnancy, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), long-term care, hospice care, health care cost containment program, handicapped initiatives including closing of Pennhurst facility, Act 148 relating to dependant and delinquent youth, and social programs funded through federal block grant program (for example: education, preventative health care, alcohol and drug and mental health issues).

Education and Training files include various programs, reforms and training initiatives, many in response to the declining SAT scores in the Commonwealth, which at that time was the sixth-largest public school system in the country. Reforms focused on both students and teachers as well, including library reforms. Also in light of the steel industry's demise, Thornburgh put in place CJT, or Customized Job Training, which was intended to provide Pennsylvania workers with new or upgraded skills needed by employers.

Economic and Community Development files consist of programs offered by state government to assist in developing the community work base. Programs such as PIDA (PA Industrial Development Authority) assisted established businesses financially. PMBDA (PA Minority Business Development Authority) directed financial assistance toward minority entrepreneurs through the Department of Commerce. Both of these programs were mandated under the Sunset Act of 1981-142. This Act functioned as an ongoing reviewing process, determining the programs' continuing value to the public. Material covering other programs includes SOICC (State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee), SJTCC (State Job Training Coordinating Council), POICC (Pennsylvania Occupational Information Coordinating Council), and NOICC (National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee).

Welfare Reform files are extensive and incredibly detailed. Thornburgh states about this subject of both fiscal and humanitarian concern: "Although editorial and interest-group mutterings about our welfare reform measures continued into the 1990s, only halfhearted efforts were undertaken to repeal or modify 'Thornfare' and restore the status quo ante. Indeed, our 'radical' reforms looked pretty tame compared to bipartisan welfare reform legislation enacted by the Republican-controlled Congress and signed into law by President Clinton in 1996" ( Evidence, p. 150). There are the following sections: general files, Pennsylvania welfare programs compared to other states' programs, general assistance, H.B.633, H.B.2044, H.B.2340, S.B.363 (Thornfare II), H.B.720, S.B.301, S.B.83, Act 75, S.B.968, H.B.1720, and memos from Walt Plosila.

Other Subjects include, for example: transportation, environment, racial segregation, South Africa and apartheid, low-level waste (LLW), Centralia, Limerick nuclear facility, Chernobyl's nuclear accident in Russia, Chesapeake Bay cleanup, Coalition of Northeastern Governors (CONEG) meeting and issue files, gender-based auto insurance, federal aid to Pennsylvania, state employees and teacher pension systems, and Committee on Constitutional System (CCS) and efforts regarding a federal balanced budget amendment.

It is worth noting that there are particularly extensive files on the Liquor Control Board (LCB) and Thornburgh's ultimately unsuccessful efforts to transfer the system into private hands.
