Harrisburg Update

A quick look at what’s happening in Harrisburg
and the 125th Legislative District...


                           Visit My Senior Expo Friday

 
Come out and visit my fifth annual Senior Expo tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Pine Grove Hose Hook and Ladder Company, 1 Orchard St., in Pine Grove.

This event is for residents who are 60 years of age or older. I look forward to my Senior Expo every year and enjoy spending time with so many of my constituents.

More than 40 vendors will be in attendance, including representatives from the Office of Attorney General, who will be providing presentations on consumer protection and scams related to senior citizens. The Schuylkill County Sheriff’s Office will also be in attendance.

Door prizes and lunch will be available. I hope to see you on Friday.


Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for New Cancer Center

Schuylkill Health and Lehigh Valley Health Network announced in April 2016 that they were merging to give the best health care services for patients diagnosed with cancer. About five months later, the merger was completed.

The new Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) Cancer Center-Schuylkill is located on the renovated third floor of the East Norwegian Street campus. It provides a range of services such as an infusion center, laboratory blood draw services and on-site pharmacy.

This is great news for our community. The LVHN Cancer Center team offers care for patients, as well as education and emotional support for patients and caregivers.

 
It was my pleasure to be part of ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the new Lehigh Valley Health Network Cancer Center-Schuylkill. This facility is good for the county, in terms of the care offered to patients, a more convenient location and jobs for our region. I’m excited about the special care they can provide to our residents.
 

Help for PA Business Owners and Startups
Private sector job growth is one of my top priorities because spurring the employment market will lead to gains in every other sector. The role of government and lawmakers is to craft policies that remove the barriers to success and business growth.

Entrepreneurs looking to plan, operate or grow a business in the Commonwealth have a great new online resource.

The Pennsylvania Business One-Stop Shop connects and guides business owners through all stages of development, from planning and startup to operating and expanding.

The easy-to-navigate website is backed by a team of business consultants and subject matter experts providing entrepreneurs and small businesses access to the resources, tools and experience they need to succeed.

Questions about the Pennsylvania Business One-Stop Shop can be submitted electronically by clicking here or by calling 833-722-6778 and pressing Option 0 to speak with a team member.
 

State Rebates Available for Alternative Fuel Cars

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is offering rebates of up to $2,000 for Pennsylvania residents who purchase alternative fuel vehicles. Rebates are available depending on the type of vehicle purchased. Eligible vehicles are plug-in hybrid, plug-in electric, natural gas, propane, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

Rebates will be awarded in the order that the request forms and required documentation and received and approved, not the date a vehicle was purchased. Consumers may submit applications up to six months after the date of purchase. Consumers should be aware that funds may be depleted before their rebate application can be processed.

Committee Examines Key Employment, Workplace Issues
The House Labor and Industry Committee conducted three public hearings this week on issues of interest to both employees and employers across the state.

On Wednesday morning, the committee heard testimony regarding the potential impacts on the Wolf administration’s proposed changes to the executive, administrative and professional exemptions from state minimum wage and overtime requirements under the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.

In the afternoon, the committee turned its attention to legislation, House Bill 2571, which seeks to ensure nonmembers of public sector unions are made aware of their right not to contribute money to the representative union.

Legislation to address workplace harassment, sexual misconduct and discrimination were the focus of the committee’s hearing on Thursday morning. The proposals include an expansion of the application of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, requiring more detailed Employment Fair Practices notices, and making it easier for workers to report problematic behaviors to their employers.
