Senator Stefano Questions LCB Officials

During a budget hearing for the Law and Justice Committee, I challenged members of the Liquor Control Board about why state store workers are not being informed about their ability to opt out of paying dues to a government union, based on the U.S. Supreme Court JANUS decision.

Somerset Lake Update


The Department of Environmental Protection has issued the permit for Somerset Lake and now the Department of General Services will begin the bidding process.  The PA Fish and Boat Commission expects to begin construction this year and be completed in 2021.  I can’t wait to welcome back Somerset Lake!
