My Upcoming Senior Expo

I hope to see many residents of the 75th Legislative District at the upcoming Senior Active Living Expo I am co-hosting on Wednesday, April 8. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Treasure Lake Church Family Life Center, near the intersection of Bay and Anchor Roads, Treasure Lake, DuBois.

I would like to thank the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Care Unlimited, DuBois Continuum of Care and TLC Media for partnering with me to hold this event. My staff and I are looking forward to the expo and the chance to meet and speak with the many senior citizens from across the district.

Approximately 60 vendors will be on hand to showcase their services. The Pennsylvania Mobile Veterans Outreach Center will also be available to discuss programs and answer individual questions with area veterans.

For those who cannot or do not wish to drive to the expo, Fullington Bus will provide transportation to the event on the following departure schedule in DuBois:

 9 a.m. - St. Michael’s Terrace, 111 West Long Ave.
 9:15 a.m. - Gateway Towers, 21 E Long Ave. 
 9:30 a.m. - DuBois Senior and Community Center, 120 West Park Ave.

The bus will leave the expo at 1 p.m. and drop-off in reverse order of pick-up.

Budget Hearings Conclude

This was the final week for House Appropriations Committee hearings on Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget proposal. Over the past three weeks, members heard from the various heads of departments and agencies about their funding requests. Legislative leaders and the governor’s office will now begin negotiations with the goal of finalizing a budget before the June 30 deadline.

The governor’s $33.8 billion spending plan includes an increase and expansion of the Commonwealth’s sales tax, along with a higher income tax.

“Hunting Heritage” Plate Now Available

PennDOT has a new license plate available for drivers who want to show their pride in being a Pennsylvania hunter. The “Hunting Heritage” plate costs $56, with $25 of that amount going toward conservation initiatives and a program that encourages hunters to donate venison to food banks. Learn more here.

New WCO on the Job

Congratulations to Eric McBride of Clearfield, one of Pennsylvania’s new wildlife conservation officers for the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Eric is assigned to northwestern Warren County.
