Veterans Should Review Benefits
Veterans are encouraged to apply for federal health care and state benefits by visiting their local county director of veterans affairs or area accredited service organizations. County directors can be found by clicking here.

DMVA officials stress that veterans and their dependents should never pay for help to apply for benefits. There are about 200 veterans service officers in Pennsylvania who work with organizations such as the DMVA, county veterans affairs offices, and several veterans service organizations available to provide assistance at no cost.

To get timely information about state benefits, programs and services, veterans are urged to sign up for DMVA’s Veterans Registry at register.dmva.pa.gov.
                                   

PA Farm Show this Week
 
There’s still time to stop by if you haven’t yet visited the largest indoor exposition of its kind along the East Coast. The 103rd Farm Show will wrap up Saturday, after hundreds of thousands of visitors have walked through the doors at the Farm Show Complex near Harrisburg.

Be sure to check out the list of competition winners on the Farm Show website. The site also includes hundreds of photos from the week, categorized by competition.

Lawmakers Propose Human Trafficking Legislation
I’m proud to co-sponsor a bill authored by my colleagues Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) and Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) that is aimed at imposing tougher penalties for people convicted of human trafficking.

Grove’s proposal, House Bill 12, and Phillips-Hill’s proposal, Senate Bill 60, would double the maximum prison sentence for people convicted of trafficking and patronizing a victim of trafficking. Read more about the specifics of the legislation, including fines and penalties, on the Caucus website here.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of human trafficking, you are not alone. Help is available through the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888, text 233733, or live chat at humantraffickinghotline.org.

Would you recognize the signs of human trafficking? Community and school presentations, as well as education sessions for professionals, are available free of charge through the PAATH project at 1-800-654-1211.

 


How Are School Districts Funded?
I hear a lot from citizens at town hall meetings and around the district who would like to know how school districts are funded.

The Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) put together a comprehensive explanation of where funding comes from, which should help give you a better understanding.

According to the PASBO, there are three main sources of revenue that fund school district operations: state, federal and local revenue. A fourth source of revenue, designated as "Other," includes financial transactions such as sales of bonds, transfers from other funds and proceeds of refinanced debt, all of which typically occur within a single fiscal year.

In the aggregate, the shares of state, local, federal and other revenue for school districts in 2016-17 are illustrated in a graph that you can view here.

Click here for a map that shows total revenues for individual school districts with data on total revenue dollar amounts and total revenue per student.
 

Seedling Sales Have Started
The 2019 seedling order form is available online and sales began Jan. 7. The order form and information about the seedlings for sale is available at the Game Commission’s website, pgc.pa.gov. Place your cursor over “Information & Resources” in the menu bar at the top of the homepage, then click on “Make a Purchase” and select the option to order products from Howard Nursery to find the 2019 Seedling Order Form.

Seedlings are sold in units of 25. Those species available are: buttonbush, graystem dogwood, Northern bayberry, ninebark, chokecherry, common elderberry, arrowwood viburnum, Washington hawthorn, black walnut, black locust, and black-gum.
 

Stop Aggressive Driving
PennDOT is reminding drivers that identifying aggressive driving behaviors will reduce your risk of being involved in a crash. Aggressive driving is not limited to “road rage.” Behaviors include speeding, running red lights, failing to stop at posted signs, tailgating and weaving in and out of traffic.

Read more about how to handle a dangerous situation involving aggressive driving on PennDOT’s website here.
