Resolution Calls for Study of Game, Fish Commission Merger


 
Pennsylvania is the only state in the nation where oversight of fishing, boating and wildlife activities is managed by two separate, independent agencies. Given the economic challenges being faced by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, I have introduced a resolution calling for a study of a possible merger of the two.

House Resolution 129 calls on the non-partisan Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC) to study the financial feasibility, impact, costs and savings that may be realized by combining the agencies. It also calls on the LBFC to explore a range of options with regard to how to structure the state’s wildlife agency to best manage the wildlife and aquatic resources of the Commonwealth.

If we can eliminate some duplication of services and pool our resources through a merger, the money saved could instead be invested in boosting our fish and wildlife populations, benefitting sportsmen and anglers across the Commonwealth. I hope to get a vote on the resolution in the near future.

Bill to End State Ownership of Liquor Stores Introduced

 
Pennsylvania is one of only two states that maintain complete control over the sale of wine and spirits. Legislation was introduced in the House this week to change that.

House Bill 790 seeks to privatize the sale of wine and spirits in Pennsylvania, allowing consumers to purchase alcoholic beverages at licensed grocery stores, convenience stores and other locations.

There is a great deal of public support for changing the state’s liquor sales system. However, it is a complex issue and it is very important to examine every detail of the plan to ensure it does not actually cost the state money in lost revenues in the future. I also want to make sure rural areas like ours will continue to have convenient access to these products. Finally, we need to make sure establishments selling alcoholic beverages remain vigilant in keeping these products out of the hands of people under the legal drinking age of 21.

The bill may come up for discussion in committee in the next week or two.
Don’t Forget to Spring Ahead!


 
Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend, so be sure to turn your clocks ahead before you head to bed on Saturday night. You’ll lose an hour of sleep but it’s another welcome sign that spring is just around the corner.

Marty! Are you pulling this shit out of your ass or what? the PGC isn't in any financial trouble. The Boat Commission is. Are you even looking at this stuff or are you winging it. Hell all of that stuff is published online very clearly. I get it but obviously you don't. Do you even have a consistent truthful bone in your body? What are you thinking? Goodness you have to be one of the biggest and dumbest politician I ever met. You need to go right back to the dispatch room and stay there. You are going to take the one and only state agency that is in GREAT financial shape and bankrupt it. You Marty need to get out of office before you hurt someone. PLEASE resign!

Causer is the most honest, dedicated, and hardworking politician in this Commonwealth. Furthermore, individuals should be required to identify themselves when making posts, especially negative ones.
