2020 Election Update

A month after the 2020 General Election, I continue to hear from so many of you who are frustrated with the state’s election processes. Please know that I share your frustrations and concerns and am committed to doing all I can to ensure the integrity of our elections. We must make sure that every legitimate and legal vote is counted and eliminate any chance of election fraud. The people’s faith in the voting process and election results are vital to effective governance of our Commonwealth and the nation.

When the General Assembly voted on comprehensive election reform measures last year, I supported the effort to increase access for all voters, enhance security for every vote cast, guarantee timely election results, and require every county to clean up voter records (a task they completed prior to the primary). Act 77 of 2019 also included clear procedures for the acceptance and verification of mail-in ballots.

The issues with this election were not the result of those changes but of the actions of an activist Pennsylvania Supreme Court and a rogue secretary of the Commonwealth who went outside the scope of their authority and violated the law, which had been approved with bipartisan support.

I did not take those actions lightly. I joined with other legislative leaders, immediately taking further court action to defend our laws before and after the election. We advanced multiple pieces of legislation to fix issues caused by the court and officially recognize what we believe are illegal actions. We voted to require a complete risk-limiting audit of the general election and have called on the attorney general to appoint an independent prosecutor to officially investigate allegations of voter fraud.

I am committed to working with my colleagues to enact policies that will ensure the sanctity of our elections and restore the public’s trust in the process and the results. Those policies may include amendments to the Pennsylvania Constitution that clearly and unambiguously outline how all future elections will be administered. Such amendments do not require the approval of the governor, but they do require the approval of a majority of the state’s voters.

To clarify questions, I have gotten from many of you: The Legislature does not certify election results; the Department of State and individual counties do. We cannot unilaterally seat our own presidential electors. It is prohibited in the Pennsylvania Constitution (Article 7, Sec 13). Only the U.S. Congress has the ability to object to Presidential Electors. Senators and Representatives from individual states must pursuit the objection. We also cannot call members to a special session during the month of December; only the governor can do that. And he recently refused a request to do so.

Our republic is built on the foundation of free and fair elections. I want to assure all of you that we will pursue every legal and constitutional path to ensure the integrity of our elections.
 
 
 
New Law to Support Broadband Expansion

My proposal to help boost broadband access in the state’s most rural communities is now law.

Act 132 of 2020 creates the Unserved High-Speed Broadband Funding Program to provide grants in support of broadband expansion in areas most in need of these services. Initial funding comes from a repeal of the $5 million Mobile Telecommunications Broadband Investment Tax Credit, though the law calls for supplementing the $5 million with additional state or federal funds.

The grant program will be administered by the Commonwealth Financing Authority. Preference will be given to projects in the most unserved areas of the Commonwealth as defined by the Federal Communications Commission’s minimum speed requirements and to projects that already have federal funding allocated to them.

This is the second major pro-broadband measure to become law this year. Act 98 of 2020 will help clear the way for rural electric cooperatives, cable companies or any entity that wants to run broadband cable to provide the service using the existing infrastructure and easements held by rural electric cooperatives. The law effectively cuts through some of the red tape that was slowing down the pace and driving up the cost of broadband expansion.
 
 
Wolf Veto Threatens Future of Conventional Oil and Gas Industry, Jobs

Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed bipartisan legislation last week that would have helped ensure the future of the state’s 160-year-old conventional oil and gas industry and the jobs it supports.

Senate Bill 790 would have enacted the Conventional Oil and Gas Wells Act to govern the conventional, shallow-well oil and gas industry with reasonable, responsible and relevant regulations. At the same time, it would have put a stop to the state Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) efforts to subject the industry to regulations created to address far more impactful unconventional natural gas drilling activities.

Once again, the governor has shown an unwillingness to recognize the vast differences between unconventional deep-well drilling and conventional, shallow-well drilling. His actions are disrespectful to the generations of men and women who own, operate or work in our oil and gas fields.

This legislation was developed in large part by members of the Penn Grade Crude Development Advisory Council, which was created by Act 52 of 2016 to advise and assist DEP with regulatory changes impacting the conventional industry. DEP is represented on the council and participated in the development of the legislation.  
 
 
Governor Refuses Liability Protections for Small Businesses, Schools, Service Providers

A bill that would have helped the state’s small business owners, schools, service providers and others struggling to stay afloat in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been vetoed by Gov. Tom Wolf.

House Bill 1737 would have provided liability protections to those businesses and organizations that follow guidance from the state and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to protect against the spread of coronavirus. It also would have ensured bad actors who fail to follow the guidance are held accountable for their actions.

In addition to COVID-19 liability protections, the measure would have helped pave the way for the state’s struggling farmers who want to expand their businesses to include agritourism by providing them with limited liability protections as well.

This measure would have provided reasonable and much-needed protection to the hard-working men and women who provide valuable services to our citizens. Despite the governor’s claims, it would not have prevented any business or organization from being held liable in cases of gross negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct or intentional infliction of harm.
 
 
 
Prescription Pricing Transparency Bill Now Law

Legislation to bring more transparency to the pricing practices of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) has been signed into law.

Act 120 of 2020 gives the Department of Human Services the authority to request payment information from PBMs and require certain disclosures upon request. It also calls on the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee to conduct a study analyzing prescription drug pricing in the Medical Assistance program.

The legislation was introduced in response to challenges facing local, independent pharmacies that are struggling to continue serving their customers because of severe cuts to pharmacy reimbursement rates by PBMs, especially in Medicaid.
 
 
 
2021 Fishing Licenses, Permits for Sale Now!

During a time when many of us are looking for fun and affordable ways to enjoy the outdoors, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is reminding anglers that 2021 fishing licenses are now on sale.

Regular fishing licenses, as well as various permits and gift vouchers, can be purchased online at www.fishandboat.com or by visiting one of nearly 700 retail license issuing agents. Licenses, permits and vouchers purchased now are valid immediately for up to 13 months, from Dec. 1, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2021.

The price of an annual resident fishing license in 2021 is still $22.90. Multi-year options are also available in increments of three years, five years or 10 years. The most popular add-ons, a trout permit and a Lake Erie permit, cost $9.90 each or $15.90 for a combination permit which includes both privileges.

While youth anglers under age 16 do not require a fishing license, they must have either a Voluntary Youth Fishing License ($2.90) or a free Mentored Youth Fishing Permit to participate in various youth opportunities throughout the 2021 season. This includes the Mentored Youth Trout Fishing Days, which occur on the Saturdays before the openings of the regional and statewide seasons. Voluntary Youth Fishing Licenses purchased in advance of the 2020 Mentored Youth Trout Fishing Days that were canceled due to COVID-19 will be honored in 2021.

New Book Release ‘’Brown Hollow Adventures’’ By’ David Orlowski

In the early 1800’s a mountain man by the name of Angus Henry moved into Brown Hollow near Keating Summit, Pa. A truly rugged young man who was bound and determined to make a life for himself in the wilderness he had known since birth. Who had searched out a place where few others would venture, not that he didn’t like them, but because he preferred living in solitude. Which was easy to do here as the region was still very isolated from civilization. Where a man could trek across the mountains and never see another soul for weeks on end. Which was the perfect place for Angus to survive and prosper in the far reaches of the wilderness. In a place whose only inhabitants were bear, deer, wolves and on rare occasion a moose or big cat

The book is available for $12.00 which includes S/H. Mail to; David Orlowski, 24 State St; Austin, Pa. 16720

Potter County Conservation District 75th Anniversary


On November 28th, 1945, the Potter County Conservation District became the first district established in the state of Pennsylvania. 

In the beginning, our roots began in the farming community, with the primary goal of helping agriculture thrive while protecting natural resources. Through the late 1930’s until 1945, three influential local figures spearheaded the establishment of the District – Henry Staiger, an agriculture teacher and involved community member; Ed Fisher, and Roselle Leete, both progressive farmers. The initial goal of the district was preventing soil erosion for the sake of future farming and conserving water quality. As Mr. Staiger explained to a then skeptical public, “would you allow a hole to remain in your pocket if you were only losing a dime at a time?” the example being that soil erosion, although often slow, is a steady loss with long term negative effects.

Through the latter half of the 20th century, the District promoted agricultural best management practices that would assist in conserving soil health and water quality. At first, these included simple ideas such as crop rotations, cover crops, and no till. Through farm tours, supporting cooperative grower groups, and other festivals and educational field days, the District along with Potter County potato growers and dairymen worked together to share ideas, experiences, and feedback on budding conservationist practices.

Especially beginning in the 1970’s and 80’s, the District became an established service provider to the community as a whole through active participation in schools, organizations, continued support to farmers, and partnerships with other agencies. At this time, the District also began offering various county conservation awards to progressive, conservation-minded farmers and teachers, as well as FFA and Agriculture student scholarships. The District also began building its capacity for environmental education through forest and farm tours, expanding content for agriculture and FFA students, and promoting the incorporation of watershed health in local classroom curriculum. 

Substantial state and local budgeting came through for the District starting in the 90’s, which gradually led to stream bank restoration projects and the beginnings of the Dirt and Gravel Roads Program. Thanks to work from our own local fishermen turned staunch conservationists – Bud Byron, Pete Ryan, Bob Cardeline, and Ed Bellis - the Dirt and Gravel Roads Program was officially adopted statewide in 1997. This program is now active in all counties in PA, working to prevent sediment washing into streams from our many dirt roads.

In the new millennia, different challenges have arisen, but our mission remains the same: protect the natural resources of Potter County through project implementation, educational programs, technical assistance, and by fostering public and private partnerships. As we did from the beginning, we’ve held strong in continuing to promote up and coming conservation practices to the agricultural community. Our reach has grown towards also promoting or providing various backyard conservation tools and practices, stream and habitat restoration, land development and construction BMP’s, dirt and gravel roads restoration and related technical assistance, and a diverse array of environmental education programs.

Although 2020 has brought many challenges to us and our community, we’re proud to take a small moment to celebrate our 75th anniversary this year! To celebrate, we’ve compiled a newsletter outlining a few milestones in Potter County through the last 75 years, and the District’s involvement in these memories. This publication will be available on our website; printed copies will be placed in the Gunzberger Building and our office at 107 Market St. We feel that our 75th anniversary is not only about celebrating our work and history, but that of our larger community as well. We hope you enjoy the stroll down memory lane, and we look forward to a bright future of continuing our service to our local environment, and to you, our remarkable community.
