Mission: Let’s Make Every Day Veterans DayBy Will Worthington, Potter County Director of Veterans Affairs
Monday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day. But to a wide network of public officials, volunteers and other dedicated Americans, EVERY day is Veterans Day. Like so many who have entered military service over the years, they go about their business each day without any expectation of personal gain or even a pat on the back. It’s all about the mission.
This year, please think of Veterans Day as more than an excuse for a three-day weekend or a shopping trip for the latest bargains. Please consider our debt to those who have given so much of themselves for our nation and to those who continue to serve. Upwards of 50 million brave Americans have worn our nation’s uniform, from the War for Independence to the current conflicts in the Middle East. More than 1.1 million of them sacrificed their lives. There are some 23 million veterans in this country. Three-quarters of them served during time of war. All of them deserve our gratitude.
I have had the honor for more than a year to serve as director of veterans affairs in Potter County. I’m just one part of a team that includes dedicated elected officials, officers of our veterans service organizations, and many others. Our team in Potter County has signed on to a national partnership to look out for the veterans on an individualized, one-on-one basis.
Not long ago, media accounts, lawsuits and some high-profile examples of mismanagement and poor service brought the VA under close scrutiny. That bright spotlight revealed shortcomings that needed to be addressed through greater accountability and additional funding. As we approach Veterans Day 2013, the good news is that considerable progress is being made. County veterans affairs directors are playing a critical role in the VA’s mission to provide America’s veterans with timely access to benefits and quality care — from the day they first take their oaths of allegiance until the day they are laid to rest. Backlogs in review of veterans health care benefit claims have been coming down and streamlined systems are in place to continue that trend, even as the VA faces unprecedented demand for services.
In Potter County, we have expanded on previous outreach efforts, launched a new veterans newsletter, and partnered with other organizations to improve services. One success story is the recent expansion of the VA Medical Clinic at Mapleview, in partnership with the Bath (N.Y.) VA Medical Center.
Please take the time on Monday to thank those veterans you see for their service. If you are aware of a veteran who needs help, please call 814-274-8290, ext. 210, or send email to email@example.com. We take seriously our commitment to meet the responsibilities and challenges of providing Potter County’s veterans the best care and service possible. It’s more than a duty; it is a privilege.

Possible Scam Originatin
Received a phone call from 814-669-3012 with nobody on the other end then a hang up. Called back to see who had called me as a reverse lookup didn’t have any information other than it was a business number from Alexandria, PA. The person who answered identified themselves as 411 Local. I told them I had received a dead air call from an automated dialer on my cell phone which is a violation of Federal Regulations and the person laughed then asked if I was a contractor. I said I was a business owner to which they replied that I wouldn’t be interested and they disconnected the call. I called back again to get information about the company only to find out that I was no longer able to call that number.

Protecting Student Athletes from Sexual Assault and Lobbyist Disclosure on the House Agenda Next Week
Protecting Student Athletes from Sexual Assault and Lobbyist Disclosure on the House Agenda Next Week
A live web stream of House session and the majority of committee meetings is available at PAHouseGOP.com. Important information and events may also be viewed by visiting Facebook.com/PAHouseGOP.
Protecting kids from sexual predators
The House will consider a bill to create a new offense of “sexual assault by a sports official.” House Bill 112 (Rep. Mike Vereb, R-Montgomery County) targets sports officials, such as coaches, athletic trainers, team attendants and managers by providing that it is unlawful for these individuals to engage in sexual intercourse, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse or indecent contact with a child under 18 years of age who is participating in the sports program.
This legislation was re-drafted from a bill which passed the House unanimously last session (House Bill 1397). The need for the new law can be illustrated by the case of William “Billy” Gordon, a private volleyball coach and personal trainer from Montgomery County who was arrested and convicted for having an unlawful sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl he had coached and mentored. According to court records, the victim would frequently visit the coach’s home for physical condition training. The assaults took place in the coach’s home and a nearby park; the victim had known the assailant for about four years.
Parents entrust their children to the care of coaches and other athletic personnel serving sports teams which are part of recreational leagues and other organizations outside of the school environment. These organizations operate a variety of sports programs for children and include activities such as youth soccer, Little League baseball and volleyball.
Strengthening lobbyist disclosure
Enhancing the penalties found in the Lobbyist Disclosure Law is the point of House Bill 744 (Rep. Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster County). The legislation would stiffen penalties for the failure to comply with a law designed to inform the public of who is influencing their government and how they are influencing state policymakers.
The Weekly Schedule
Identified by bill number, the sponsors and summaries for bills scheduled to be considered in committee or on the House floor are posted below. More information regarding these bills can be found at PAHouseGOP.com by clicking on the “Research Bills” tab.

Thompson Joins in Support of the USA FREEDOM Act
Bill to End Dragnet Collection of Phone Data & Add Meaningful
Oversight of Surveillance Programs
BELLEFONTE, PA – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson today announced his support for H.R. 3361, the USA FREEDOM Act, a bill to restore Americans’ privacy rights by ending the government’s dragnet collection of phone records and requiring greater oversight, transparency, and accountability under National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance programs.
“This bill is aimed at reworking the PATRIOT Act, to stop NSA’s mass data collection and ensure that the constitutional rights of Americans are protected,” stated Thompson, a member of the bipartisan House Privacy Caucus.
“Congress did not intend for any law to authorize the indiscriminate collection of personal information of Americans,” added Thompson.
H.R. 3361 was introduced with broad bipartisan support. Companion legislation, S. 1599, was recently introduced in the Senate.
“There is a just and legal way to go about preventing terrorism, without violating our individual privacies,” Thompson added. “Congress must use its powers to provide oversight of the NSA and all surveillance activities. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House and Senate to advance these commonsense improvements and vital protections to our civil liberties.”
Summary of USA Freedom Act (H.R. 3361):
· Ends bulk collection of Americans’ communications records.
· Requires the government to more aggressively filter and discard information about Americans accidentally collected through surveillance and related programs.
· Reforms the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) and creates an Office of the Special Advocate (OSA) tasked with promoting privacy interests before the FISA court’s closed proceedings.
· Creates new and more robust reporting requirements to ensure that Congress is aware of actions by the FISC and intelligence community as a whole.
· Grants the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board subpoena authority to investigate issues related to privacy and national security.
· Ends secret laws by requiring the Attorney General to publicly disclose all FISC decisions issued after July 10, 2003 that contain a significant construction or interpretation of law.
· Requires the government to make annual or semiannual public reports estimating the total number of individuals and U.S. persons that were subject to FISA orders authorizing electronic surveillance.

DEP Announces Dec. 16 Public Meeting, Hearing on CAFO Permit for Columbia County Hog Farm
WILLIAMSPORT -- The Department of Environmental Protection will hold a public meeting and hearing on Monday, Dec. 16, to discuss a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) permit application submitted by Joel Knoebel for his existing Cleveland Pork Farm in Cleveland Township, Columbia County.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be held at the Elysburg Fire Company #1, at 1 East Mill St. in Elysburg.
“Staff from DEP’s Clean Water Program will explain the permit review process and applicable regulations,” DEP North-central Regional Director Marcus Kohl said. “This presentation will be followed by a question and answer session, so that both DEP and the applicant can hear from residents and provide needed information.”
Knoebel was first issued an NPDES CAFO permit for this existing operation by DEP on June 3, 2008. That permit expired on June 2, 2013. In early August, DEP and Knoebel signed a consent order and agreement that required the submission of a new NPDES CAFO application by Sept. 30, which was submitted.
During the 8 p.m. hearing portion of the evening, the public will have an opportunity to present up to five minutes of oral testimony about the application. Written testimony of any length will also be accepted. The oral testimony will be recorded by a court reporter and transcribed into a written document, and DEP will create a written response to all relevant testimony.
Those who wish to present oral testimony are required to register that evening prior to the hearing. For anyone unable to attend the public hearing, written comments should be submitted by the close of business on Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013 to DEP Clean Water Program Manager, Department of Environmental Protection North-central Regional Office, 208 W. 3rd St., Suite 101, Williamsport, PA 17701.
The public may schedule an appointment to view the application in the regional office by calling 570-327-0550.
Individuals in need of an accommodation as provided for in the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 should contact Daniel Spadoni at 570-327-3659 or through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at 1-800-654-5984 (TDD).

A news conference was held Thursday for opponents of the bill to again express their opposition. The lines are clearly drawn between industry supporters of the bill and environmental groups sided with the affected Fish and Boat and Game Commissions.
Industry supporters of the bill, including the Marcellus Shale Coalition, claim the new legislation will ensure accountability through greater consistency and transparency, while eliminating construction delays now encountered when endangered or threatened species may be present. Environmentalists say the bill will gut current laws in place to protect wildlife in Pennsylvania.
A new twist to the discussion is an amendment that Game and Fisheries Chairman Rep. Martin Causer (R-McKean County) plans to offer, which first became available for review on Thursday. The amendment appears to mitigate some of the objections that have been raised, but not enough of them to resolve the situation.
A recent letter to the editor from the Lycoming Audubon Society states what most of those opposed to the legislation agree upon, that HB 1576 is geared to benefit industry, especially the gas industry, at the cost of Pennsylvania's wildlife.
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Pyle, admitted in a September interview that
"it was 'fair' to say that the proposed changes to the species listings process would most benefit the Marcellus Shale gas drilling industry." Couple that statement with the almost $49,000 in campaign contributions that Mr. Pyle received from the oil and gas industry, and the real reason for HB 1576 seems more evident.
The House Game and Fisheries Committee is scheduled to consider
HB 1576 on November 13. Contact your Representative now to express your opinion on HB 1576.

|Rep. Martin Causer|
HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint), chairman of the House Game and Fisheries Committee, issued the following statement to clarify ongoing misinformation about the proposed Endangered Species Coordination Act, House Bill 1576:
“The purpose of House Bill 1576 is to provide consistency, transparency and accountability by subjecting all endangered species and trout streams designations to the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) process. It is also designed to provide more efficient and timely access to sensitive species information, including avoidance and mitigation measures, for those involved in permitted projects that may be affected by those species.
“House Bill 1576 does not take the decision-making authority out of the hands of the Game Commission or Fish and Boat Commission. It simply requires the commissions to take the same steps as every other state agency that promulgates regulations – including the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources when it makes endangered species designations and the Department of Environmental Protection when it makes certain stream designations.
“The bill does not limit the state’s ability to designate threatened or endangered species not already designated as such by the federal government. And an internal review by House attorneys of our endangered species designation process under this bill versus those of other states also indicates there should be no loss of federal money should the bill become law.
“The IRRC process simply allows for review and acceptance of public comment before regulations are enacted, and that is the way it should work in a democracy. Decisions cannot be made in a vacuum; rather, state government must operate in an open forum where Pennsylvania residents can participate and a system of checks and balances ensures both accuracy and accountability.”
Causer also outlined key points of a proposed amendment to the bill. The amendment is based on testimony received during two joint public hearings of the House Game and Fisheries and House Environmental Resources and Energy committees. The amendment:
Removes the requirement for the agencies to re-designate all currently listed species within a two-year time frame.
Expands the proposed centralized database to include “other designated species” that are of special concern or rare species other than threatened or endangered species.
Ensures access to information in the database is made available only to authorized persons and increases the civil penalties for unlawful use of sensitive database information.
Prohibits the transfer of licensing dollars or federal funds for implementation of the act to further ensure there is no loss of federal funds as a result of the change.
Places the requirement to do field surveys back on the permit applicant affecting the land and specifies that if field surveys are required, the state agency with jurisdictional authority for the protection of the species must within 30 days of receiving the survey results provide either clearance for the project, or detailed avoidance measures, detailed minimization measures or detailed mitigation measures to the permit applicant.
Clarifies that the requirement of the commissions to adhere to independent regulatory review does not apply to actions such as hunting seasons and bag limits or fishing seasons and creel limits.
