Friday, September 08, 2017  The latest news from the State Capitol

House Returns to Session to Finish Budget Business – Members of the House will return to voting session at the state Capitol on Monday, Sept. 11, with the goal of finishing up the 2017-18 state budget process.

Among the outstanding items to be resolved is identifying the revenue necessary to fill last year’s budget shortfall. Lawmakers have been standing up for taxpayers by pursuing alternatives to a Senate-approved proposal that seeks to increase taxes on a variety of consumer utility bills and sales taxes on online purchases, among others.

Earlier this week, a group of more than a dozen House members outlined their proposal to make use of taxpayer dollars that appear to be sitting idle in a variety of special government accounts.

The plan is designed to prevent any impacts on jobs, services or agencies while making use of money already collected from taxpayers. The measure also aims to improve transparency regarding how tax dollars are spent.

Other ideas being advanced by the House include further privatization of liquor sales and an expansion of gaming opportunities.

Talks will continue until an agreement is reached.

Don’t Be Scammed by Skimmers – The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is warning consumers to be on the lookout for credit or debit card skimmers that steal your information when the card is swiped or inserted.

Often combined with a concealed camera, thieves can also record your Personal Identification Number (PIN). With this information, thieves can withdraw money from your bank account and make unauthorized purchases. Additionally, the thieves may sell this information to others.

To help protect yourself, take the following steps:

  • Use ATMs in well-lit, secure locations and avoid using ATMs that are stand-alone units in corners of stores or other out-of-the-way locations.
  • Look at the card reader slot and surrounding areas to see if anything looks out of place, mismatched or loose.
  • Consider using your credit card instead of your debit card to avoid compromising your PIN and to gain other consumer protections.
  • Choose gas pumps that are closer to and within the line of vision of the cashiers.
  • Check your bank and credit card statements frequently to watch for fraudulent activity and report any unfamiliar activity immediately.

Never Forget the Victims of Sept. 11, 2001 – This Monday will mark the 16th anniversary of one of the worst days in our nation’s history. On Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 men and women were killed in devastating terrorist attacks in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The loved ones lost will be honored and remembered in observances across the country, including one at Pennsylvania’s own Flight 93 Memorial, near the site where one of the four planes hijacked that day crashed.

More information about the Flight 93 Memorial and planned observances is available here.
                              

Hunter-Trapper Education Boosts Safety

By law, all first-time hunters and trappers, regardless of age, must successfully complete Hunter-Trapper Education (HTE) training before they can buy a Pennsylvania hunting or trapping license.

A training certificate, which is recognized throughout North America, is awarded when the individual passes the test at the end of the course. Individuals must be at least 11 years old to enroll in a class. The training is designed to produce safe, responsible, knowledgeable and involved participants. Due to hunter education, hunting is safe and getting safer.

Two options are available to complete the course — in a classroom or entirely online (for those who are 16 years of age or older). Click here to learn more about HTE and view other training programs available.
