The latest news from the State Capitol 
REAL ID Update- This week, I joined 115 of my House colleagues in signing on to a letter to President Donald Trump asking for his administration to re-examine the application of the REAL ID Act and encourage Congress to make changes to the law in order to resolve the constitutional and cost issues associated with it. Click here to read the letter.

As you may know, Pennsylvania was recently granted an extension by the federal government to comply with REAL ID. The Commonwealth now has until June 5 to fix state law to meet the requirements of the act.

The delay will allow Pennsylvania residents to continue using their driver’s licenses as identification to enter federal buildings. Without the extension, residents would have needed an additional photo ID, such as a passport, to gain access to military buildings, nuclear power plants and federal facilities starting on Jan. 30.
My Committee Assignments - For the 2017-18 session, I have been appointed to serve on the following three committees: Environmental Resources and Energy, Finance, and State Government. I look forward to serving on these committees, which are charged with taking up proposed legislation and considering it for possible passage to the full House. 
Do You Have Federal Government Questions? - A representative from U.S. Senator Pat Toomey's office will visit my DuBois district office on Thursday, Feb. 2, from 12:30-2:30 p.m. The office is located in Suite 10 of the DuBois Area Plaza, 1221 East DuBois Ave.

If you have questions about issues like Social Security or Medicare, this is a great opportunity to have them answered.
Possible Property Tax Rebate For Decedents - Thanks to a recent Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania decision, estates of property owners who died between 2004-09 can now claim rebates on real estate property taxes paid in the year of death, provided a property tax rebate was received in the year before the decedent’s death.

The money was made available through a settlement which removed $20 million from the Pennsylvania Lottery Fund to create a class fund. Claims could range up to $975 per decedent, with an average of approximately $400. It is likely all valid claims will be paid.
