Committees to Discuss Dairy Industry Issues at Ag Progress Days
The House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, which I chair, will host a joint informational meeting with the Senate Ag Committee to examine a variety of issues impacting the state’s dairy industry during Penn State’s Ag Progress Days next week.

Members will hear from Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau and PennAg Industries, a Penn State business professor and people working in the dairy industry. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, at the Russell E. Larson Ag Research Center, 2710 West Pine Grove Road in Pennsylvania Furnace.

Ag Progress Days is designed to highlight the latest trends, research and technology in agriculture. The event attracts more than 45,000 attendees and nearly 500 exhibitors from 34 states and Canada. In addition to the exhibits, attendees can participate in research tours, watch machinery demonstrations, receive free health screenings and more.

Wine Privatization Law Gives Consumers Greater Choices
This week, changes are being implemented in the way consumers buy their beer, wine and spirits in Pennsylvania, as Act 39 of 2016 took effect. This new law is considered the first step to privatizing the state’s liquor sales system.

The new law allows grocery stores with restaurant licenses to apply for permits to sell up to four bottles of wine, consumers to ship wine directly to their homes, and the purchase of to-go wine from restaurants and hotels. Approved grocery stores may have wine on their shelves as early as October, with direct shipment available much sooner. Convenience stores, which must have restaurant licenses with seating areas, will be able to sell six-packs of beer, and state stores will be allowed to be open longer and on holidays and Sundays.
