The latest news from the State Capitol 
Voters to Decide Property Tax Issue - This fall, voters will ave the opportunity to amend the Pennsylvania Constitution to allow local governments to exclude more of a property’s median assessed value for property tax reductions.

Currently, the state Constitution only permits local governments – counties, municipalities and school districts – to exclude up to 50 percent.

The referendum is made possible through House Bill 1285, which recently passed both chambers of the General Assembly this summer. It is identical to legislation, House Bill 147, which cleared both the House and Senate last session – a requirement to amend the Constitution.

Voters will be able to consider the constitutional amendment on the Nov. 7 ballot. Should the people of Pennsylvania vote in the affirmative on this question, the Constitution will be amended as the governor’s signature is not required for a constitutional amendment.
Disability and Senior Resource Expo - For the fourth consecutive year, I am partnering with Life and Independence for Today (LIFT) to host a Disability and Senior Resource Expo. Our event will take place this Wednesday, July 26, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Edgewood Hall, 717 South St. Marys St., St. Marys.

The expo is a great opportunity for senior citizens and their loved ones, as well as members of our community living with disabilities, to check out the various resources that are available. With more than 60 vendors on hand, the event is also a chance for LIFT to display the various services they perform in Elk County and the surrounding six-county region.

LIFT was established in 1994 by people with disabilities and serves as a Center for Independent Living (CIL). In addition to providing independent living skills training, they can assist with advocacy issues and offer peer mentoring services, information and referrals and much more.

Various types of health screenings will also be performed during the expo. Admission is free and lunch will be served.
Attention Sportsmen - If you're interested in a FREE copy of the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Hunting and Trapping Digest, please stop by either my DuBois, St Marys or Clearfield district office. Supplies are limited so get yours today.
On the Road Again - Starting Monday, trucks exceeding five tons will be prohibited from using Route 255 between Sabula and Penfield. Northbound trucks will be required to use Interstate 80 to the Penfield/111 exit and follow Route 153 north to Route 255 north in Penfield. Southbound trucks will use Route 153 south, entering I-80 at the mile-marker 111 on-ramp and exiting at the DuBois/101 exit, where they can access Route 255.

The truck detour is necessary so work can be performed to remove the asphalt surface, repair the subgrade of the road and then re-pave it. The project will improve drainage, as well as roadway and structure integrity, and enhance safety along this travel route. Overall work will also include tree trimming, new inlets, roadway safety paint markings, and new traffic lines. Paving and installation of ADA-compliant curb ramps at the Penfield Route 255/153 intersection will also be included.

Passenger cars and trucks will be able to continue using Route 255 between Sabula and Penfield while road work takes place but drivers should be prepared for long travel delays.

PennDOT expects the project to finish in early November.
Congratulations… Bill Brock of St. Marys, one of four new commissioners to soon join the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. Commissioner Brock will represent Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Jefferson, McKean and Potter counties.

The commissioners are appointed to four-year terms.
I recently recognized two talented individuals associated with Boy Scout Troop 95 in St. Marys, which was chartered in 1934.

Scoutmaster Lad Kornacki is one of the troop's fine leaders who has provided great programs and positive mentoring to the young men of Troop 95.

For his Eagle Scout project, Nicholas Gismondi built supportive structures to house cats and also benches with storage for the Elk County Humane Society. Pictured with him are his parents, Nick and Chris Gismondi.
Congratulations to the St. Marys Little League Minor League All Stars on staying undefeated and winning the Section One tournament Thursday in Erie County. Their next stop is Bucks County, where they will play Monday in the state finals.
