The latest news from the State Capitol 
Farm Show Starts Saturday - The 102nd Pennsylvania Farm Show will kick off this Saturday, Jan. 6, and run through Saturday, Jan. 13. This year’s theme is “Strength in Our Diversity.”

In addition to all the delicious food offerings, the Farm Show features 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibitors. Admission to the show is free, but parking is $15 per vehicle. Shuttle service is provided.

More information is available by clicking here.
Bingo Law Update - As a way to help nonprofit organizations better raise funds for community needs, Act 66 of 2017 updates the state’s antiquated Bingo Law, which was enacted in 1981.

The new law increases prize limits from $250 to $500 for any one game of bingo; from $2,000 to $4,000 for jackpot games; and from $4,000 to $8,000 for the total amount of prizes awarded in a calendar day. It also gives community organizations the freedom to advertise the dollar value of cash prizes. Organizations will be permitted to advertise bingo games on the internet and through social media.

Additionally, the law removes restrictions on the number of days a licensed association may conduct bingo games, permits pre-draw bingo and allows for guest callers and for new members of an organization to assist with bingo.
ATV Trails - The Allegheny National Forest’s Timberline and Rocky Gap ATV trails are now open. The Willow Creek and Marienville ATV trails and the Penoke Off-Highway Motorcycle trail remain closed until Friday, May 25.

Riding the ATV trails requires a permit, which can be purchased at any of the Allegheny National Forest offices or any authorized vendors. The list of vendors can be found on the Allegheny’s website. The 2018 ATV and trail bike permits cost $10 for a day permit or $35 for an annual permit.

Applications can be obtained at any ANF office or by clicking here.
