Township Building,

I am rescheduling the town hall meeting that had to be postponed because of bad weather. I hope you will be able to join me for a discussion of legislative issues this coming Thursday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m., at the North Lebanon Township Building, 725 Kimmerlings Road, Lebanon.

Gaming reform to be discussed – On Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 10 a.m
., I will be joining my fellow members of the House Gaming Oversight Committee for a public hearing to discuss a 14-bill package of gaming reform legislation.

The package is the result of a grand jury investigation of the Gaming Control Board and subsequent report which included recommendations on oversight of the gaming industry and enforcement of the Gaming Act.

You can watch the hearing on my website,

Mosquito spraying scheduled - The Lebanon County West Nile Virus Program and PA Department of Environmental Protection's West Nile Program will be conducting truck mounted spraying for adult mosquitos in North Cornwall and South Lebanon townships in late evening on Wednesday, Sept. 28.

High populations of nuisance mosquitoes due to flooding have been detected near these residential areas.

Road closure update - Iona Road between Route 897/South 5th Avenue in South Lebanon


Township and Prescott Road in Heidelberg Township remain closed due to flooding. The road will remain closed until the water has receded and any necessary repairs have been made. It should reopen within the next week.

Millardsville Road between Tulpehocken Road and Reilly Road in Jackson Township remains closed. The Tulpehocken Creek has breached its banks and water continues to run through the washed out roadway. PennDOT expects the road to remain closed for several months until repairs are completed.

Changes coming to Medicare – Those individuals on Medicare need to be aware of changes to enrollment that are coming late this year and early next year. If they miss the opportunity to make adjustments to their plans now, they will have to wait another year.
