Week of January 26, 2015

Medical Cannabis Reintroduction Press Conference
In our continuing efforts to provide medical cannabis to those suffering in Pennsylvania, we have scheduled a Press Conference in the Capitol Main Rotunda on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. to announce the billís reintroduction as SB 3. 

Senator Leach and I are excited to have 23 co-sponsors to date with bipartisan support, and eager to have this bill vetted, passed by both the Senate and House and signed into law this year to provide one more arrow in the quiver of Pennsylvaniaís patients. 

2015-2016 Senate Committee Assignments
Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati announced the Republican members for each Senate Standing Committee for the 2015-2016 legislative session. I am excited to serve as Chair of State Government and Vice Chair of Education! I have served on both Committees since joining the General Assembly and have waited eight years to Chair the State Government Committee. I am also looking forward to serving on my other Committee assignments: Communications & Technology, Intergovernmental Operations, Labor & Industry and Rules & Executive Nominations

2015 Pennsylvania Farm Show
I had a great time participating in several events at the Pennsylvania Farm Show!

Bell & Evans of Fredericksburg, PA, located in the 48th Senate District sponsored and chose me as their driver in the Mike Waugh Celebrity Draft Horse Team Driving Event. It was my first time participating in this event and I placed 6th!

Above is everyone who participated in the Mike Waugh Celebrity Draft Horse Team Driving Event Ė Congratulations to Representative Dan Moul (R-91) who took 1st place!

I also participated in the VIP Dairy Showmanship Contest. I showed Peppermint, a Brown Swiss Cow owned by Heilinger Swiss in Lebanon County. As part of the contest, I had to know that Peppermint was born on 12-12-12, her motherís name was Philly and her fatherís name was Tanbark. Peppermint is also going to be a mom in March!
