Capitol Update
Friday, May 17, 2019 The latest news from the State Capitol


Thank you to Brent Raabe and Barb Sweitzer of YMCA of the Twin Tiers for visiting my office in Harrisburg on Tuesday. We had a great discussion about early childhood education and all the fine programs available at the Bradford Family YMCA. We are joined by my son Matthew, who was helping out at the Capitol this week.
 

Ag Committee Hears Forest Products Industry Update on Visit to Elk County


As chairman of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, I was pleased to join Rep. Matt Gabler in hosting an informational meeting about our forest products industry with lawmakers, state officials and local industry leaders yesterday in Kersey.

We had a great discussion about a variety of issues impacting the industry, including workforce development and the need to educate new generations of foresters and loggers; market challenges and the potential impact of tariffs on trade with China; workers compensation costs; forest conservation easements; and state funding for the Hardwoods Development Council.

Joining us for the meeting were state officials from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania Game Commission and Department of Agriculture, as well as local forestry officials.

Committee members also took part in a sawmill tour at St. Marys Lumber Company.
 

Supporting Our National Guard Members and Their Families

Recognizing the sacrifices made by the families of PA National Guard members, the House approved legislation to provide them with education benefits.

House Bill 1324 would extend our current Pennsylvania National Guard Military Education Program by including a Guard member’s spouse or child in this benefit program.

The benefit would pay for 10 semesters/quarters, or five years equivalent, at the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education tuition rate.

The Guard member could earn these educational benefits for his or her spouse and/or children by committing to a second obligation of six years with the Pennsylvania National Guard. This would help retain current National Guard members and attract transitioning military service members to Pennsylvania while also supporting Guard families.

The bill now moves to the Senate for its consideration.
 

Fish for Free Next Weekend

If you’ve been thinking about trying fishing or wanting to introduce your child or a friend to the joys of fishing, you’ll have a great chance to do so next weekend!

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will host the first of its two annual Fish for Free Days next Sunday, May 26.

On Fish for Free Days, anyone -- resident or non-resident -- can legally fish on all Pennsylvania waterways without a license. All other fishing regulations will still apply.

For your convenience, there are even opportunities to borrow equipment from certain sites at state parks and other locations. You can find those locations by clicking here.

The second Fish for Free day is scheduled for Thursday, July 4.
