Thanksgiving Wishes to All!

Legislative Update Friday, November 17, 2017 The latest news from the State Capitol Thanksgiving Wishes to All!

Pennsylvania can claim to be the home of the first recognition of Thanksgiving, when Gov. Simon Snyder was the first to recognize it as an official holiday on the third Thursday of November in 1817. Philadelphia’s Gimbels Department Store was also the first to host a Thanksgiving Day parade in 1920.

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 23, state offices will be closed on Thursday, and my office will also be closed on Friday, Nov. 24.

From my family to yours, may you all have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving. Grant Approved to Investigate and Remediate any Possible Environmental Issues from Illegal Dumping Continue reading…

Setting the Record Straight: Plan to Reduce the Size of the House

Rep. Jerry Knowles (R-Berks/Carbon/Schuylkill)

As the prime sponsor of legislation to reduce the size of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, I hear much misinformation about this bill and the legislative process. Let me try to set the record straight.

 

My legislation, House Bill 153, would reduce the House from 203 to 151 members. Since this involves a change to the Pennsylvania Constitution, a specific process must be followed for this to take place.

 

In the 2015-16 session of the
