Free Paper Shredding Event Set for May 19

In our continuing effort to help constituents combat identity theft, I am hosting a paper shredding event on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to noon. The free service will be available in the parking lot of my district office in Coopersburg, located at 21 N. Main St., Unit 9.

This event is for residents only; no businesses, please. Residents can bring documents that contain sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, medical data or bank account numbers, to be shredded at no cost to them. The limit per vehicle is five 30-gallon garbage bags or copy paper boxes of paperwork.

Safety Project Receives State Funding

PennDOT tells us that the Borough of Coopersburg has been awarded a $1 million grant for a road safety project. Specifically, the funding will go toward pedestrian and bicycling improvements to North Main and West State streets, including pedestrian crosswalks, curb, sidewalk, ADA improvements, pedestrian lighting and sharrows (a roadway marking to indicate a bike lane).

The money is made available through a program that funds projects and activities defined as transportation alternatives. A total of 82 projects statewide will receive grants totaling nearly $67 million.

In the District

Last week, I had the privilege of spending some time with the Vera Cruz Senior Group discussing state government issues. Thank you for inviting me!

Tracking Every Cent of Taxpayer Money

With overwhelming bipartisan support, the House last week approved legislation to greatly enhance the public’s ability to track every cent Pennsylvania receives and how the state spends taxpayer dollars.

House Bill 1843 would enhance the Pennsylvania Treasury’s Transparency Portal website and make the program permanent so it is always available to taxpayers. Specifically, the legislation would create the Commonwealth Checkbook, a user-friendly online ledger to show the public how and where their tax dollars are spent. The bill would also require state agencies to post budget requests online.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.

Economic Update

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s General Fund revenue collections for April fell below expectations. Learn more here, in our Economic Brief.

Wall That Heals Attracts Thousands Already this week, thousands of Pennsylvanians have visited The Wall That Heals, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., on the grounds of the State Capitol Complex.

The Wall and an accompanying mobile Education Center is available for public viewing, 24 hours a day, until 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 13. Admission is free.

Since many Americans have not been able to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF), creators of both the original wall and the replica, want to give all citizens, veterans and their family members an opportunity to see the memorial.

Attention, Dog Owners

During the month of May, state dog wardens will be conducting license and rabies compliance checks in Lehigh, Montgomery and Northampton county neighborhoods. All dogs, three months and older, must be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year. Additionally, all dogs and non-feral cats must be vaccinated against rabies to help protect the public and other animals against this disease.

In addition to finding a way home for lost dogs, dollars spent on a license allow the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement to protect dogs in kennels, crack down on illegal kennels, keep track of dangerous dogs, and investigate dog bites.

If you have not yet licensed your dog, please visit  for more information on how to do so.
