The latest news from the State Capitol 
                                   
 
Changes - Under a new law aimed at improving customer convenience, consumers will be able to buy six-packs and refillable growlers at the state’s beer distributorships starting this Saturday.

The law also allows retail licensees to start selling on Sundays at 9 a.m. instead of 11 a.m.; permits a person licensed by another state to apply for a “malt or brewed beverage shipper license,” which allows the direct shipment of up to 192 fluid ounces of beer to be delivered to a customer per month, though only 96 fluid ounces of a specific brand of beer may be shipped per year to an adult resident; and allows liquor to be sold (in shatterproof containers) before, during and after professional and amateur athletic events in the same manner that is currently permitted for the sale of malt or brewed beverages.

The new law is the latest in a series of steps taken by lawmakers to make beer, wine and liquor sales more convenient to consumers. Among the most changes was allowing the sale of wine at approved grocery stores.
                                                       
                          
 
Investments In Our Communities - The City of DuBois has received $700,000 in federal money to extend the walkway and provide bus pull off areas along Beaver Drive in the Industrial Park. The funds are derived from Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), which was created to build on many of the highway, transit, bike, and pedestrian programs and policies established in 1991.
                                    
                                           
 
Help with Home Energy Bills - Residents who are struggling with their home heating bills can apply for assistance from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) this winter.

LIHEAP is a federally funded program that helps individuals and families pay their heating bills through home heating energy assistance grants. It also provides crisis grants to help in the event of an emergency or if a resident is in danger of losing his or her heat due to broken equipment, lack of fuel or termination of utility service.

The income eligibility guidelines for LIHEAP are set at 150 percent of the federal poverty level income. For an individual, the income limit is $17,820; for a couple, the limit is $24,030; and for a family of four, it is $36,450.

Residents may apply for LIHEAP online or by contacting the County Assistance Office in their county of residence. Click here for details.
                                    
                           
 
Attention Hunters - The Pennsylvania Game Commission is hosting a two-day hunter training course on Monday, April 3, and Tuesday, April 11, at the Kane Fish and Game Sportsman's Club, Dwight Road, Kane. The course is required by law for all first-time hunters and trappers before they can purchase a license.

On Wednesday, I competed in the VIP Dairy Showmanship Competition at the 101st Pennsylvania Farm Show. I spent an enjoyable evening spent with Gabrielle, a three-year-old Junior Brown Swiss from Hostetter Dairy in Somerset County.

While we didn’t win the competition, we had a great time getting to know each other.

Re:

I don't drink booze or do drugs, but whomever wrote this law must do both.
So one can get shipped 192 ounces of beer a month, but only 96 ounces of a
brand You prefer!!! Politicians are nuttier than fruitcakes.

Meant to say, "192 ounces a MONTH, yet only 96 ounces a YEAR that
You prefer". Rather senseless.

PA liquor, wine and beer laws are unbelievable. What a bureaucratic mess. Either alcohol is legal or not. If it is, then allow it to be sold. If not, then don't.
