New Legislation Would Assist Military Personnel, Taxpayers

Laws of the land - they are designed to assist, protect, and sustain us. Citizens from all four corners of our Commonwealth count on our laws to,
among other things, provide them safe haven from those who choose not to obey the law. They also count on their legislators to always consider
everyone’s best interests when crafting, debating, and passing these laws. It can be a long and trying process, but one that carries with it great
reward in the form of better protection of the people.
In the near future, I plan to introduce several pieces of legislation designed to enhance the lives of those serving in the military,
improve openness and accountability in government, and save our taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars. These intiatives are a direct result
of the input and suggestions from citizens in our legislative district. As your representative, it is my duty to listen to your concerns on
issues impacting our communities and families and to act on resolving them. My planned initiatives include legislation to:
• Update Pennsylvania’s Tax Reform Code to have it parallel federal law by exempting employers from withholding tax
from those:
o Serving in the armed forces in a combat zone during combatant activity.
o Having served in the above capacity and are now hospitalized as a result.
o Serving in the military as a result of a federal call-up to active duty.
o Serving in the civilian capacity outside Pennsylvania in order to support those serving in the armed forces.
• Publish an annual report of the Oil and Gas Lease Fund on the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’
• Give courts the ability to order any party held in contempt to pay for related filing fees of the party who sought
the contempt order.
Many new initiatives will come before the House as the current legislative session progresses. Ideally, all legisla-
tion introduced in the House, including my initiatives, will have bipartisan support. Some will pass and progress to the
next step; some will not. The important thing is that we, as legislators, continue to strive to ensure our current and
future laws protect us as best as possible.
More information on the above mentioned initiatives, as well as other legislation, will be available at my
website at and on my Facebook page at

Share Your Thoughts on Important Issues

As your state representative, I am not only charged with representing our district in Harrisburg, but also doing everything I can to ensure
growth and progress in our own backyard, the 41st Legislative District. But I can't do it alone. I am seeking assistance from my neighbors who
share my vision: to make our district the best it can be. That is why I am organizing a Citizen Advisory Board.
This new Citizen Advisory Board will meet quarterly to discuss the issues impacting our communities. Your feedback will be very helpful in
shaping the future of our district. So, if you can spare a little time a few times per year and are interested in joining my Citizen Advisory Board,
please contact my office at (717) 295-5050. I look forward to working with you to make a positive difference in our district!
