Stop By Our New District Office in Milton TONIGHT!

Earlier this year, my staff and I opened an additional district office, which is open on a part-time basis, Monday-Friday, from 8:30-11:30 a.m. TONIGHT, we are hosting an open house on Thursday, Feb. 2, from 4-6 p.m., for residents to meet with us and check out the new space.

House Readies for 2017-18 Budget Address

The House and Senate will convene in a joint session of the Pennsylvania General Assembly on Tuesday, Feb. 7, to hear the governor’s budget proposal for the third year of his administration. In a preview of his address, the governor has pledged not to ask for an increase in the states sales or incomes taxes. He is also seeking to consolidate four state agencies – the departments of Human Services, Health, Aging, and Drug and Alcohol Programs – into one Department of Health and Human Services.

We will be looking to study the details of such a proposal, along with other ways the state can save taxpayer money and fund core functions of government in the most efficient ways possible. For the past several years, the House has been able to meet budgetary needs while not relying on increases in broad-based taxes. To watch the governor’s address live, log onto pahousegop.com beginning at 11:30 a.m. The address is expected to begin closer to noon.
2017 Adult Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available Online

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced that the 2017 adult trout stocking schedules are now available online and on the PFBC’s “FishBoatPA” mobile app. Paper copies will be available in our district office in the coming weeks. Anglers can easily search the trout stocking schedules for locations and dates of interest. To view the list, simply go to fishandboat.com, click on the link “Fish” in the upper right corner, then select Trout Stocking Schedules. From there, select a county and enter start and end dates from the calendars at the top of the page. Then press “Go.” For anglers with smartphones, an even easier way to view the schedules is through the FishBoatPA app, which is available for free from the Apple App and Google Play stores.

Recognizing an Area Eagle Scout

I had the opportunity to recognize Joshua Marzak, who recently earned his Eagle Scout Award, which helps a scout develop in the areas of leadership, service and outdoor skills. Joshua is a member of Troop 331 in Sunbury, and is the son of Ann Marie Marzak. For his community service project, Joshua constructed three little free library kiosks in Danville. The libraries are sponsored by the Thomas Beaver Free Library. Congratulation, Joshua, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
