Week of January 5, 2015
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by
the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe
harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2015! Make it a year to remember!

Reintroduction of Legislation for the 2015-16 Session
With the start of a new legislative session, bills that did not become law
must be reintroduced. Before introducing legislation, other Senators are
invited to co-sponsor. Co-sponsorship memos can be viewed
here, are sorted by the prime sponsor of the legislation and are updated
regularly. The legislation will be assigned a bill number once it is submitted to the Senate Secretary’s office.
Please feel free to contact me at any time on state-related issues that are
of concern to you. I may be reached through my
website or my Lebanon or Harrisburg offices.
When contacting my office by
e-mail, mail, or telephone, please be sure to share your e-mail, telephone
number, and address so that we can follow up with you in a timely manner. Many
inquiries can be handled with a phone call or email.
