The latest news from the State Capitol 
State Budget Hearings Continue

Next week is the third and final week of House Appropriations Committee budget hearings. Scheduled to testify are the departments of Education and Human Services, along with the Pennsylvania State Police, Office of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General, and Gaming Control Board. The final day (Thursday) will feature Budget Secretary Randy Albright. You can watch the hearings on Rep. Gabler’s website,

The second full week of budget hearings wrapped up on Thursday, with members of the House Appropriations Committee asking agency and department officials a variety of questions about executive functions, programs and efficiencies. These questions, along with submitted written testimony, will serve as the foundation for budget negotiations this spring.
Attention Veterans

A representative from the Pennsylvania American Legion will visit Rep. Gabler’s DuBois district office this Tuesday, March 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a great opportunity for the men and women who serve or have served our country to check out programs and benefits that may be available to them.

You do not need to be an American Legion member to take advantage of this service.
Improving Fire Safety

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources recently announced newly renovated and replaced fire towers will be added to the Commonwealth’s wildfire fighting arsenal to support the Bureau of Forestry and volunteer fire company efforts in answering forest fire calls across the state.

Among the fire towers to be replaced are the Rockton, Chestnut Ridge (Knobs), Rattlesnake, Summit and Black Hills towers in the Moshannon State Forest; and the Brooks Run and Bootjack towers in the Elk State Forest. Many of the original towers still in operation today were constructed in the 1920s through 1940. The new fire towers will be safer to ascend, with improved stairs and railings, and be topped with weather-proof cabs.

Though winter weather crimped replacement work, construction will be resuming close to Pennsylvania’s Wildfire Prevention Week, March 3-10.
