News from State Representative Matt Gabler

Headline Harrisburg

Friday, June 02, 2017
The latest news from the State Capitol 
                          
Strengthening Penalties - To help keep repeat offenders of driving under the influence off the road, the House passed legislation recently to strengthen penalties for those who have been convicted of DUI and continue to operate a vehicle under a suspended driver’s license.

Currently, anyone convicted of a DUI who then operates a vehicle despite their driver’s license suspension currently faces the same penalty – a $500 fine and 60-90 days in jail -- no matter how many times they get behind the wheel.

House Bill 1049 would create a tiered system that increases the fines and sentences with each subsequent offense. Those sentence enhancements would range from a $1,000 fine and a minimum 90-day jail term for a second offense, to a $5,000 fine and no less than two years in jail for a fourth offense. In addition, the legislation would allow a judge to impose a maximum five-year jail sentence if the offender is also convicted of homicide by vehicle.

The bill is now with the state Senate.
                
         
Federal government questions? - A representative from Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson's office will visit my DuBois district office this Wednesday, June 7, from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The office is located in Suite 10 of the DuBois Area Plaza, 1221 East DuBois Ave.

If you have questions about Medicare or Social Security, this is your opportunity to have them answered.
                  
         
Attention Veterans - A representative from the Pennsylvania American Legion will visit my DuBois district office this Tuesday, June 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a great opportunity for the men and women who serve or have served our country to check out programs and benefits that may be available to them.

You do not need to be an American Legion member to take advantage of this service.
                  
         
 
On Monday, I was privileged to take part in the Memorial Day remembrance ceremony in St. Marys. While I was honored to serve as grand marshal, I needed all the help I could get and my daughter, Caroline, was happy to oblige.
