The latest news from the State Capitol 
Help for First Responders - At hearings in northeastern Pennsylvania this week, the House and Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness committees learned more about ways in which the Commonwealth can better assist first responders in the years to come and better manage emergency response situations.
The first hearing focused on long-term first response needs, including addressing a shortage of volunteers and relaunching a task force for long-term strategic planning. The original task force, established in 2004, developed numerous recommendations that have since been enacted into law.

The second hearing’s testimony dealt with overhauling the state’s emergency management law, the role that regional task forces play and the resources needed to ensure a proper state of readiness.
FAFSA Changes – If you are a college student or the parent of one, you know what the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form is. Two important changes have been made to the process, including the time frame for submitting the form:
  • Rather than Jan. 1, 2017, students will be able to file a 2017-18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016. This is a permanent change.
  • Beginning with the 2017-18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017-18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.

Attention Hunters - The Pennsylvania Game Commission is hosting a hunter training course this Saturday, Aug. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Brockway Sportsmen’s Club Pavilion, 608 Baghdad Road, Brockway.

Honoring Our Veterans – On Sunday, Sept. 4, the new Curwensville World War II Memorial will be dedicated in Curwensville Memorial Park at 2 p.m. Nearly 800 men and women from Curwensville and the surrounding area served our country during the second World War.
