Pittsburgh was recently named one of the top ten cities in the United States for small business activity, according a new study of entrepreneurial activity across the country conducted by the Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Mo.

In the aftermath of the 2008 financial collapse, Pennsylvania Treasurer Timothy Reese applauds the city’s comeback, but wants to continue providing resources for small businesses looking to expand throughout the Commonwealth.

The Pennsylvania Treasury Department wants military veterans or their heirs to get the military medals they rightfully deserve.

The Treasury is trying to return some of the 300 military medals the department has acquired over the years.

In conjunction with Veterans Day, State Treasurer Rob McCord is urging his Return Team to renew their efforts in finding the rightful owners or heirs to unclaimed war medals.

State Treasurer Rob McCord is urging parents to open a Pennsylvania 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan (GSP) before Sept. 1 to take advantage of last year’s lower cost per college credit.

529 plans are offered by states that include tax-free earnings growth and withdrawals.
