Committees to Examine Child Protection Task Force Recommendations
Members of the House Children and
Youth Committee and the House Judiciary Committee will conduct a joint
hearing next week on the recommendations issued by the Task Force on
Child Protection, which was formed in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky
scandal. The hearing will take place at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at
In Harrisburg this week, the House
organized the membership of the 24 standing committees. In addition to
being appointed chairman of the House Game and Fisheries Committee, I
also will continue my service on the House Environmental Resources and
Energy Committee. This committee focuses on the development of energy
policy and has oversight of the Department of Environmental Protection
and Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. For updates about both of my committees, follow me on Facebook.
Protecting Second Amendment Rights
With the Obama administration, and
some state legislatures, going after people’s second amendment rights, a
gun rights rally will be held in Harrisburg again this spring. The
Second Amendment Action Day is set for Tuesday, April 23, at 10 a.m. in
the Main Capitol Rotunda. You may also sign a petition opposing any proposed gun controls here.
National leaders’ focus on tighter
gun controls not only threatens our constitutional right to keep and
bear arms; it also gives people a false sense of security that the awful
tragedies that have taken place across the country in recent months and
years will be prevented in the future. The truth is we need to focus on
our mental health care system, and on keeping guns out of the hands of
people who are seriously mentally ill. Taking guns out of the hands of
law-abiding citizens will not solve this problem.
