PA House Returns To Session Monday

Budget, Pennsylvania’s School Curriculum on House Schedule


The House returns to session on Monday, June 10. 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. 

Budget: Setting Priorities, Spending with Sustainable Revenues

Budget season is in full swing at the Capitol with a vote scheduled this week on House Bill 1437 (Rep. Bill Adolph, R-Delaware County), the General Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2013-14.
Under the $28.3 billion pay-as-you-go budget, House Republicans prioritize funding for education, public safety, health and human services, and the environment. The plan represents a $578 million, or 2.1 percent, increase over this year’s budget. 
The bill proposes to do the following: 
·         Increase funding for basic education by $100 million.
·         Allocate funding for more than 300 new state troopers.
·         Add $7.2 million to the Department of Health to restore funding health treatment and prevention disease line items such as epilepsy support, ALS support services, Tourette syndrome support, poison control centers and Lupus support.
·         Allocate $4 million in funding for county conservation districts.

Common Core… or common fear?

The fact is, as with many initiatives hatched under the previous Rendell Administration, the state’s move to the “Common Core” curriculum was done without much public notice or input. Tens of millions of tax dollars have been invested, and now that the Department of Education is starting to roll out these tests and curricula, parents are asking questions and sharing real concerns.
The House is responding. House Resolution 338 (Rep. Hal English, R- Allegheny County) urges the Secretary of Education and the State Board of Education to review policies relating to the adoption of state academic standards for K-12 education, and to respond to the recent wave of concerns by amending state regulations to affirm Pennsylvania’s commitment to its tradition of local control, rigorous standards and respect for the privacy of its citizens.

Ohio Swimming Pool Contractor Jailed In Connection With Port Allegany Theft In 2012

Ohio Swimming Pool Contractor Jailed In Diamond Ring Theft In Liberty Township

A Warren, Ohio swimming pool contractor spent a week in the McKean County Jail in connection with charges filed by State Police in 2012 after a $7, 000. diamond wedding ring was stolen from a Port Allegany area residence while work was being done to install a Kayak Pool.

Jerry Jerome Miller, 28, of  Warren, Ohio, was arrested on a warrant charging (F3) Theft By Unlaw Taking-Movable Prop and (F3) Receiving Stolen Property.

Miller was arraigned May 22, 2013 before District Judge Dominic A. Cerone, Jr. who committed Miller to the McKean County Jail when he could not post $100,000. cash bail. Miller subsequently was released on May 29, 2013 on a $100,000. bond.

A 14 karat two-tone diamond wedding ring with a total of 3 karats of diamonds was stolen along with two $100.00 bills from the bathroom of a Liberty Township residence on September 14, 2012 between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm according to State Police at Kane who investigated.

Trooper Dale T. Vukovich, Jr., said the items were stolen from the bathroom at the residence of Janice and Herman (Curly) Rennells at 18 Baxter Road in Liberty Township, McKean County, by known male suspects. The total value of the stolen items is estimated at $7,100.00. 

The ring was subsequently turned over to Ohio State Police and the Rennells had to travel to Ohio to reclaim their property.

Miller is scheduled to return to McKean County on July 1 for a Preliminary Hearing on the charges.

Work on PennDOT’s Route 220/Auction Road Project Underway

Work on PennDOT’s Route 220/Auction Road Project Underway

Lock Haven – On behalf of Gov. Tom Corbett, PennDOT today announced that work on its Route 220/Auction Road project in Lamar Township is underway. The project kicked off this morning with a ground breaking ceremony held in partnership with Clinton County Economic Development. Once work on Phase One and Phase Two are complete, area drivers will enjoy smoother, more efficient travel through this area and have increased sight distance at the four-way intersection.

The contractor will be installing long-term traffic control signing as early as today. Work next week will include completion of traffic control signing, installation of erosion and sedimentation controls, and installation of rock construction entrances.

This work may impact traffic and drivers should be alert for temporary flaggers in the roadway. Short travel delays are possible. Motorists are advised to watch for slow moving vehicles throughout the entire work zone.

Construction of Phase One includes the building of the ramps on the eastern side of Route 220, adjacent to the Auto Auction. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on the $3.4 million Phase One project.

Phase two of the project will build the bridge and ramps on the western side of Route 220, adjacent to the Clinton County Fairgrounds. Phase Two is expected to begin in 2014.

PennDOT reminds motorists to buckle up, obey posted speed limits and proceed with caution through all work zones.

PENNSYLVANIA HUNTING LICENSES TO GO ON SALE

PENNSYLVANIA HUNTING LICENSES TO GO ON SALE

Hunters, trappers can purchase new tags beginning June 10.

It’s that time again.

Hunting and furtaker licenses for Pennsylvania’s 2013-14 seasons go on sale Monday, June 10.

And once again in the 2013-14 license year, all license fees remain unchanged since 1999.

Licenses can be purchased online through the Pennsylvania Automated License System (PALS) website, https://www.pa.wildlifelicense.com.

Licenses also can be purchased over the counter at all Game Commission region offices and the Harrisburg headquarters, as well as through more than 600 in-state and out-of-state issuing agents.

A list of issuing agents is available at the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.state.pa.us.

The 2013-14 hunting and furtaker licenses are effective July 1, when the licenses that now are valid expire. The new licenses are valid through June 30, 2014.

The launch of license sales for the upcoming seasons also serves as a reminder for Pennsylvania hunters who hold senior lifetime hunting or furtaker licenses, or combinations of those licenses. While those hunters need not pay a license or transaction fee, they must pick up new licenses and harvest tags.

Licenses purchased through PALS are subject to a 70-cent transaction fee for each license or permit, and that fee is paid directly to the Nashville-based company that runs PALS.

Through PALS, hunters can purchase not only their general hunting and furtaker licenses, but add-on licenses needed for archery or muzzleloader hunting, specialty licenses to hunt bears or set out after second spring gobbler, permits to hunt and trap bobcats and fishers, and more.

In short, what can be purchased from an issuing agent, can be purchased online.

Hunters also can use PALS to apply for the elk-license drawing or purchase Deer Management Assistance Program permits.

Many specialty licenses or permits have application or purchase deadlines, or launch dates for sales.

Fast approaching is the launch date for the sale of antlerless deer licenses. Applications for antlerless deer licenses must be sent by mail using official pink envelopes available from issuing agents or Game Commission offices.

County treasurers statewide on July 8 will begin accepting antlerless license applications from Pennsylvania residents. Nonresidents can apply starting July 29. Beginning Aug. 5, treasurers will begin selling the remaining unsold licenses for any wildlife-management unit for which licenses remain available. A second round of unsold license sales will begin Aug. 19.

Except in Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 2B, 5C and 5D, hunters may only apply for one license during each application period. In those WMUs, hunters may apply for an unlimited number of licenses, however, the longstanding tradition of limiting applications to three per envelope remains in place for all applicants.

Over-the-counter antlerless license sales in WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D begin Aug. 26.

Meanwhile, the deadline to apply for a 2013 elk license is Aug. 25. Those wishing to hunt bears during the early seasons must purchase licenses by Nov. 22, with bear licenses going back on sale from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. The deadline to purchase a bobcat or fisher permit is Dec. 20. And those wishing to purchase a second spring gobbler license must do so by May 2, 2014.

Harvest permits through the Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) will be available for sale beginning June 10, but hunters should be advised that permits for some properties might not become available until after that date.

DMAP permits will be available once landowner applications are approved and landowners are notified by the Game Commission. If permits for a particular DMAP unit have not gone on sale, hunters can continue to check back until sales begin.

Hunters purchasing their licenses early also might not be able immediately to get a copy of the 2013-14 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest regulations booklet. Some issuing agents won’t receive the booklets until late June. A complete version of the publication is posted on the agency’s website. And hunters who don’t receive a printed copy of the booklet initially may return to the issuing agent and pick one up after the booklets are delivered.

2013-14 State Budget Scheduled for Debate Next Week


With the June 30 budget deadline just around the corner, a $28.3 billion budget bill has been scheduled for a vote in the state House next week.

House Bill 1437 includes no new or increased taxes. Among other things, it proposes to increase funding for basic education by $100 million; allocate funding for more than 300 new state troopers; add $7.2 million to the Department of Health to restore funding for health disease line items such as diabetes programs, epilepsy support, ALS support services and bio-technology research; and allocate $4 million in funding for county conservation districts.

Dozens of amendments already have been filed to the bill, and more are expected as we work to craft a fiscally responsible plan that supports the core functions of government. For more information, click here.

House OKs Bill to Address UC Service Center Problems

 
Members of the House voted unanimously this week in support of a bill to help ensure qualified Pennsylvanians receive unemployment compensation payments in a timely manner.

House Bill 26 would divert a portion of employee unemployment compensation taxes to be deposited into a newly established Service and Infrastructure Fund. Money deposited into this fund would help make up for the loss of federal funds and allow the Department of Labor and Industry to improve the quality, efficiency and timeliness of services provided by unemployment compensation centers.

The measure now goes before the Senate for consideration.

SIX-STATE ENFORCEMENT INITIATIVE AIMS TO REDUCE CRASHES ON 790+ MILES OF US ROUTE 15

“OPERATION BORDER TO BORDER”
SIX-STATE ENFORCEMENT INITIATIVE AIMS TO REDUCE CRASHES ON 790+ MILES OF US ROUTE 15




(FAIRFAX, VA) – Six state police and highway patrol agencies this weekend will engage in Operation Border to Border, a coordinated traffic safety enforcement initiative targeting approximately 791 miles of U.S. Route 15, which originates in Waterboro, S.C., and ends in Corning, N.Y. The corridor is a heavily-traveled thoroughfare for summer vacationers and for those attempting to avoid congested interstates serving all six states.

Just as the summer vacation begins for thousands of students and families up and down the East Coast, state troopers from Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia will carry out Operation Border to Border to prevent traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities along the entire length of U.S. Route 15. For three days, troopers from each of the six agencies will work together, conducting saturation patrols, sobriety check points and other enforcement initiatives to reduce traffic crashes and combat criminal behavior along this major, non-interstate highway. The initiative begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, June 7, 2013, and runs through midnight, Sunday, June 9, 2013.

This is the first time all six states have coordinated enforcement efforts to target U.S. Route 15. Last year, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia launched the first such joint operation. During the three-day 2012 Border to Border traffic safety initiative, troopers from the three states stopped a total of 509 speeders and 16 reckless drivers. Three commercial vehicles were stopped and cited for speeding in Virginia and North Carolina. Seven drunk drivers in Virginia and Maryland were arrested. Troopers cited 56 seat belt violations and 19 child restraint violations. A total of 24 felony and misdemeanor arrests, to include two drug arrests, also resulted from the initiative. No traffic fatalities occurred during the three-day project. There were three traffic crashes that involved injuries – all of which occurred in Virginia.

Maryland
Driving under the influence, speeding, aggressive and distracted driving have contributed to motor vehicle crashes and fatalities along Maryland’s 37.85 miles of Route 15, a major north/south roadway frequently traveled by vacationers throughout the summer months. In 2012, Maryland State Police responded to approx. 700 reported motor vehicle crashes along Route 15 in Frederick County. These incidents ranged from minor fender benders to serious personal injury crashes. Fortunately, none of these involved a fatality. However, between 2010 and 2011, there were six fatalities along the Maryland portion of Route 15 in Frederick County.

New York
Route 15 travels 12.71 miles into New York State, approximately half that distance is two-lane rural highway with at grade intersections while the remaining portion is a four-lane divided highway. Over the last two years the number of motor vehicle collisions investigated by the state police has remained relatively unchanged. In 2011 there were 37 collisions with one fatality and there were 36 collisions in 2012.The primary cause of the majority of these collisions was unsafe speed.

North Carolina
Unfortunately to date, the North Carolina stretch of Route 15 from Interstate 85 north to the Virginia border has experienced one traffic death this year. Two people died in traffic crashes in 2012 on Route 15 and five in 2011. The 158-mile stretch of highway experienced 309 total traffic collisions last year, which was a 16% decrease from 2011 when there were a total of 369 traffic collisions. Speeding has been the most common cause for collisions, with impaired driving also being a frequent factor.

Pennsylvania
Route 15 spans approximately 195 miles through central Pennsylvania from the Maryland to New York borders. In 2012, law enforcement agencies in Pennsylvania investigated a total of 428 crashes on Route 15, including four fatalities. This marks a decrease from the 496 crashes, including ten fatalities, on Route 15 the previous year. The primary factors for these crashes include speeding, distracted or careless driving, and aggressive driving.

South Carolina
Route 15 originates in Walterboro and continues north for 159 miles to the North Carolina border.

Virginia
From 2011 to 2012, Virginia’s 230-mile stretch of U.S. Route 15 experienced a 23 percent increase in traffic crashes. U.S. Route winds its way from Clarksville at the North Carolina border through Virginia to the Maryland border at Loudoun County. The highway alternates between two-lane, rural stretches of road to urban four-lane highways, linking the towns of Clarksville, Farmville, Culpeper, Warrenton and Leesburg.
In 2012, there were 391 traffic crashes on U.S. Route 15, compared to 318 in 2011. Five of the 2012 crashes were fatal. Speed, fatigue, alcohol, and illegal drugs have been the most common causes of the crashes investigated along the Route 15 corridor within recent years.
