Discussion on the issues

Article posted on February 20, 2018

The Appropriations Committee hearings on the budget started today in the Senate and the House.  The tradition in the Senate is to allow the chair of the oversight committee to lead the questioning on the subjects that fall under his or her committee.  This afternoon, we had people in from the Schools for the Deaf and Blind, and the Intermediate Units, so, I started things off.  Nothing really unusual today came out of the hearings, but there are 2 ½ weeks to go.  This evening I was a guest on the PCN call-in program along with Rep. Jim Roebuck, Minority Chair of the House Education Committee.  We talked about school issues. Several of the callers were from back home, Altoona, Saxton, and Johnstown, and interestingly, most of the rest were from the Philly area where Rep. Roebuck lives.  I’ll be on the radio in the morning, 103.7, at 8:10 for my usual every-other-Wednesday discussion on the issues.
