Listen in to the Liveline
Earlier this week, I had the
opportunity to participate in WESB’s Liveline with Anne Holliday. We had
a great discussion of issues facing our communities and the
Commonwealth, including the opioid epidemic, state budget, oil and gas
issues, and more. Listen in here.
What’s Happening in Harrisburg?
The fall edition of my legislative newsletter is out and is now available for viewing at my website.
In it, you will find updates about
the state budget, the increase in Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) on
some state lands and efforts to prevent overregulation of the
conventional oil and gas industry. The newsletter also includes
information about new laws I sponsored to boost ATV trail development
and ensure the Clean and Green program is working as it was intended.
