It’s their biggest conference to date, with about 4,000 attendees!

The Commonwealth Prayer Breakfast went well this morning.  Thanks to my 11 friends from Blair and Huntingdon Counties who made the trip.  Later this morning we had a hearing on the proposal to enter into a leaseback agreement on the Farm Show Building.  I was impressed with the information we gathered, including the fact that the building doesn’t make money; we’re losing about $5 million a year.  We’re also not sure that the leaseback deal would be permitted under IRS rules.  The administration still didn’t know details about this issue, even though they proposed it 2 1/2 months ago.  This afternoon we passed a gun preemption bill, as did the House.  This issue has passed before, but met with problems with the Governor or the courts; hopefully this time it will stick.  This evening I dined with the PA Assoc. of Township Supervisors (PSATS) in Hershey.  It’s the final night of their conference, their biggest to date, with about 4,000 attendees, wow!
