The latest news from the State Capitol 
  
 
Rear-Facing Child Safety Seats Now Required – Children in Pennsylvania under the age of 2 must now be securely fastened in a rear-facing child safety seat while riding in a vehicle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends infants should be in a rear-facing car seat until they weigh at least 20 pounds and are at least age 1.

New rules taking effect today require children under age 2 in Pennsylvania to use the rear-facing seat until they outgrow the maximum weight and limits designated by the manufacturer. Previously, state law did not specify how the car seat should be facing.

According to existing state law, children under age 4 must be buckled into a child safety seat. Children ages 4-7 must be buckled into a properly secured child booster seat, while children ages 8 and over must be buckled in a seat belt.

Learn about Agriculture Innovations– This coming week, I will be attending Ag Progress Days, a showcase of the latest trends, research and technology in agriculture – Pennsylvania’s No. 1 industry – that takes place Aug. 16-18, near State College.

Sponsored by Penn State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences, 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, enjoy interactive family fun and receive free health screenings.

While there, the House and Senate Agriculture and Rural Affairs committees will hold an informational briefing on general dairy industry issues.

No admission fee is charged, and parking is free. For more information, please click here
 
 
 
Back-to-School Vaccinations Clinics Now Available - To prepare children for the upcoming school year, the Pennsylvania Department of Health is holding immunization clinics across the Commonwealth now through Sept. 2 to provide vaccines at little or no cost for children through 18 years of age who are Medicaid eligible, uninsured, underinsured, or American Indian or Alaska Native.

The cost is $5 per child (payable by check or money order) for families above income guidelines. No child will be turned away because of an inability to pay.

Parents must pre-register their children by calling 1-877-PA-HEALTH (1-877-724-3258). To find a clinic near you, click here.
  
    
 
   
I recently had the pleasure of providing a Pennsylvania state flag to the Dubois Oklahoma Athletic Association for display in their field house. I am pictured with the association President Denny Lisi.
