$1.5 Million to Aid Broadband Expansion Project

Continuing our efforts to bring quality broadband service to rural communities across the northern tier, the state has awarded a $1.5 million grant to Tri-County Rural Electric Cooperative for the first phase of its broadband expansion project.

The funding will be used to provide broadband service to approximately 1,383 customers in portions of Potter County, including approximately 830 residential, 540 seasonal and 13 commercial customers who currently lack access to adequate internet speed. It includes the construction of 103.1 miles of fiber, attached above ground on poles owned by the cooperative and in rights of way already acquired by it.

I commend Tri-County Rural Electric officials for their initiative in addressing the need for broadband service in our communities and am pleased we are able to help fund the project. In today’s world, quality internet access is becoming just as important as the electric service the cooperatives made possible decades ago. It will help our economy, educational opportunities and health care access. This is great news for our region.

The funding was awarded through the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Project program. Funding for the project was authorized by lawmakers in the Capital Budget Project Itemization Act.
 

Thanks for Coming!


We had a GREAT turnout of more than 500 people at the 16th Annual Bradford Senior Citizens Expo last week. Thank you to everyone who came out to join us and to the exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers who helped to make it a success. If you missed it, don’t worry…we have two more expos coming up. On Friday, Sept. 14, we’ll be at the Kane Community Center and on Friday, Oct. 12, we’ll be at the Roulette Fire Hall. Hope to see you there!

                                   

House, Senate Ag Committees to Hear Industry Update at Ag Progress Days

Penn State’s annual Ag Progress Days is set to get underway on Tuesday, drawing more than 45,000 people to the State College area to learn more about the science and business of agriculture production.

The House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, which I chair, will hold a joint meeting with the Senate Ag Committee to hear an update on issues facing the industry on Wednesday, Aug. 15, starting at 10 a.m.

Speakers during the meeting will include Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding; Dr. Richard Roush, dean of Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences; and a panel discussion featuring Hannah Smith-Brubaker, executive director, Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture; Rick Ebert, president, Pennsylvania Farm Bureau; Christian Herr, executive vice president, PennAg Industries; and Wayne Campbell, president, Pennsylvania State Grange.

Barring technical difficulties, the meeting will be streamed live at www.RepCauser.com. Video of the meeting will also be posted the following day on my website.

Ag Progress Days is sponsored by Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences and attracts nearly 500 exhibitors from 34 states and Canada, with more than 60 percent directly or indirectly involved in ag production.

In addition to the exhibits and trade show, attendees can participate in crop displays, machinery demonstrations, guided research tours, family and youth activities, horse exhibitions and workshops.

No admission fee is charged, and parking is free. For more information, click here.
 

Ensuring Safety of Recalled Vehicles

With more vehicles being the subject of nationwide recalls, a new law taking effect on Aug. 27 will require all new and used vehicle dealers licensed in Pennsylvania to disclose, in writing to used vehicle purchasers, the existence of any open, unrepaired recalls.

Under Act 59 of 2018, a dealer would be in compliance with the disclosure requirement by providing the used vehicle retail purchaser a report obtained from the website www.safercar.gov, or a successor website, based on a vehicle identification number search.

Consumers would still have the option to pursue civil action if a dealer fails to disclose existence of open recalls.
