this place sickens me.



I hope not! My theory is Corbutt is employing the scorched earth policy to pass gas bills now since he has no hope of ever being reelected. Check out his "approval" ratings here.

By posting that the bill is going to pass, aren't you making the case for NOT contacting your legislator?

Discouraging people from contacting their legislators increases the chances that the bill will pass.

I don't think it matters Dwight, I've already contacted mine, but I don't think it will matter. Even if this bill fails, there will be another, and another, and another. these companies want a free ride in this state, and have the money to buy it, this bill is just another ticket towards that ride.
I'm growing tired of the fight.

Bikerfish,
It's always worth the fight. I learned that at the battles of Big Spring and the Little J. In the words of my college hero, Bluto...

What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough... The tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

In all seriousness, you never know. There is always hope when you fight and don't give up.

The legislature is trying very hard to circumvent the laws of the Commonwealth, laws that were put in place by former legislatures, for the benefit of all. Now they are about passing laws to benefit only a chosen few, like hunting preserves. Thye would also allow a poluter to ask PFBC to reduce protection of streams by requesting Class A or other protected streams to be downgraded.

The Legislature of this state is just stupid, they've tried this before, but it seems they only float this boat during off year elections.
For instance, one thing they recently passed was a rule saying that pigs escaped from hunting preserves come under the rules of the Dept. of Agriculture, therefore the game commission hands get tied somewhat by regulating the hunting preserves. It's convoluted if you ask me.

The legislature can't pass a budget nearly every year, and they pull this tish! Yikes. We need a constitutional amendment to change the legislature and reduce the number in both houses, limit terms, and limit campaign spending. And that's just at the state level.

The legislature is filled with a bunch of gutless Holes.


HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today signed the following
bills into law:
House Bill 1580, sponsored by Rep. Merle H. Phillips
(R-Northumberland/Snyder), amends Title 3 (Agriculture) under the PA
Consolidated Statutes, pertaining to cervidae (elk and deer) livestock
farms. HB 1580 provides that all cervidae livestock operations - including
deer, elk, moose, caribou, reindeer and hybrid operations -- will be
regulated by the Department of Agriculture and shall be considered normal
agricultural operations, and therefore protected from nuisance suits.

The bill provides that prior to issuing a license, the department, or an
agent of the department, including a licensed veterinarian accredited by
them, is to inspect the premises of each applicant. The department may
issue a provisional license to an operation that was in effect before the
inspection requirement, and will, within one year from the effective date
of this bill, inspect the premises and determine whether to issue or deny
the license.

If the department takes no action, the license will be automatically
granted. A license is valid for two years from the date issued. Under
current law, it is only valid for one year.

Finally, the bill charges the department with ensuring that the area where
the animals live is fenced in to protect the animals as well as the public.

All laws under Title 34 (Game Code) are repealed, and regulations
previously issued by the Game Commission regulating deer farms are
considered invalid if they are inconsistent with this bill.

The bill passed the House 198-0 and the Senate, with amendments, 49-1. The
House concurred 196-0. The bill is effective in 60 days.


State moved towards having the agriculture dept manage game farms some time ago. Note the vote. Note the gov.
