We’re back at the budget hearings today.  The Department of Agriculture testified this morning with the Departments of General Services and Transportation this afternoon.  There were no details learned about the lease back proposal on the Farm Show Building or the $25 fee on residents living in municipalities without local police protection.  We’ve been waiting for information about the various proposals announced by the Governor, and so far, we haven’t had much luck.  I spoke with the good folks at the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association this morning.  They have a Monthly Business Briefing at this time of the month and I was their speaker.  Many manufacturers have a difficult time getting skilled employees, so what schools do or don’t do to prepare students for the workforce is important to them.  They provided good information for me to utilize as we work through these issues; I appreciated my time with them.
