WWII Vet to Be Honored at Coudersport Bridge Dedication

The public is invited to join in the dedication of the Route 6 bridge over Dingman Run in Coudersport as the PFC George Pesock Memorial Bridge. A native of Potter County, Pesock was killed in action in July 1944 on the island of Saipan.

The dedication ceremony will be held this Saturday, June 1, at 2 p.m. in the Kightlinger Motors service lot near the bridge.

Please join me in honoring and remembering this young man who sacrificed his life for our freedom.
 

AHUG Annual Dinner


It was a pleasure to again take part in the Allegheny Hardwood Utilization Group (AHUG) annual dinner at the Red Fern Inn in Kersey last night. This is a great group of dedicated and hard-working professionals! I am pictured with AHUG President Chris Guth, Executive Director Susan Swanson and guest speaker Tripp Pryor, the international program manager for the American Hardwood Export Council.
 

Working to Ensure State is Ready to Handle Threats to PA Agriculture

Working to protect the state’s food supply and the agriculture industry, I have introduced legislation creating the Pennsylvania Rapid Response Disaster Readiness Account.

House Bill 1516 would create the account and allocate funding to the Department of Agriculture to facilitate a quick response to agricultural disasters, including using animal or plant health officials to contain an outbreak or threat, or providing an immediate response to a foodborne illness.

Spotted Lanternfly is an ongoing threat facing multiple segments of the agriculture industry, including grapes, fruit trees and hardwoods. Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive planthopper native to China, India and Vietnam. It was first discovered in Pennsylvania in Berks County in 2014 but has since spread to more than a dozen counties in the eastern and southcentral regions of the state.

In 2015, the state was preparing for a potential outbreak of avian influenza as the disease spread across the country in nearly two dozen states.

Every single resident of the Commonwealth relies upon our agriculture industry to put food on their tables. With monitoring and surveillance systems already in place to promptly identify potential threats, creating this disaster readiness account is a vital next step to ensure we have the resources to provide a rapid and well-coordinated response.

My bill is scheduled for consideration by the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee next week.
