Agenda For PA House Of Representatives

Committees Take on Lottery and Child Protection Issues

The House returns to session on Tuesday, Jan. 22. Live web streams of House session and the majority of committee meetings are available at PAHouseGOP.com.  Important information and events may also be viewed by visiting Facebook.com/PAHouseGOP. 

Protecting Our Children
The House Judiciary and Children and Youth committees will hold a joint meeting to formally receive the report of the Task Force on Child Protection, which was formed in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. The committee members will hear from task force Chairman Dave Heckler, Bucks County district attorney, and other task force members in an effort to begin the process of introducing legislation to implement the committee’s recommendations.

Because no single piece of legislation alone can solve the problem of child abuse, the task force, established in December 2011, was charged with conducting a comprehensive review of the laws and procedures relating to the health and safety of children. The task force conducted 17 public hearings and working sessions throughout the Commonwealth and heard testimony from dozens of people about children and youth services operating procedures, children’s advocacy centers, mandated reporters of child abuse, training for physicians and school personnel and more. Additional information about the task force, and the final report, is available at http://www.childprotection.state.pa.us/index.cfm.

Reviewing the PA Lottery Contract
As the Corbett administration continues its work to manage the Pennsylvania Lottery with a new vendor, the House Aging and Older Adult Services Committee will hold two informational meetings about the plan. Tuesday’s meeting will focus on the importance of lottery funding to providers of aging services, while Wednesday’s meeting will feature a discussion of the management contract by administration officials and Camelot Global Services. Camelot is guaranteeing the growth of the lottery fund over the next 20 years at a rate higher than any projection offered by current lottery officials. Revenues are projected at $200 million more per year than the lottery now delivers.

I was checking my lotto numbers last night on the lottery website.I scrolled down and looked at a PA county by county map of winners totals from the year.It also tells how much money went to the elderly.I know it is due to population.Although it is amazing how far behind Mckean,Potter and Cameron are in those categorys compared to every other county in the state.Geesh!Can't they atleast send up a couple big scratch off winners.Ridiculous!
