Remember Our Veterans This Memorial Day

Monday, May 26, is Memorial Day. While many view this as the unofficial start of summer and celebrate with weekend getaways and family cookouts, we must also remember the true meaning of this day by honoring and remembering those who have died in service to our country. Please take the time to offer special thanks to those who serve, those who previously served, and the surviving family and friends of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

State Officials Tour Conventional Oil, Gas Operations

Officials from the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), including Secretary Christopher Abruzzo, visited McKean County on Thursday to learn more about the region’s conventional oil and gas operations. This is another important step in our effort to educate state officials about the differences between conventional and unconventional drilling and how proposed regulations could mean the death of smaller oil and gas operations and related industries that mean so much to our local economy.

Leaders of the Pennsylvania Independent Petroleum Producers and the Penn Grade Crude Coalition did a fantastic job of organizing the tour, which included several oil and gas operations in Kane, Lewis Run, Rixford and Bradford, as well as tours of the Penn Brad Oil Museum and American Refining Group.

In addition to this ongoing effort, I have also introduced legislation that would require the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) to separate the drilling, alteration, operation and plugging regulations for unconventional gas wells from those regulations applicable to conventional oil and gas wells in the Commonwealth.

Driver License Centers Close for Memorial Day Weekend

All PennDOT driver license and photo centers will be closed from Saturday, May 24, through Monday, May 26, for the Memorial Day holiday. A variety of driver and vehicle products and services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website. Services include license and photo ID renewals, vehicle registration renewals, driver history services, changes of address and exam scheduling.

Emails Going Missing?

If this is the first email update you have received from me in quite some time, it’s probably because the House rules prevent some of the people on my mailing list from receiving updates 60 days prior to an election. If you’d like to ensure that you consistently receive my updates, follow this link and add your email address. 

Your email address will never be shared or sold.

Reminder: Fish for Free This Memorial Day!

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will host the first of two Fish for Free Days on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26. On this day, anyone (resident or non-resident) may legally fish on all Pennsylvania waterways without a fishing license. All other fishing regulations will still apply. This is a great way to expose the next generation of anglers to the outdoors. Find more information here. Whether you choose to fish, go on a weekend getaway or hold a family picnic, please be sure to remember the real purpose of Memorial Day and devote some time to remembering the men and women who lost their lives in defense of our nation.
