Town Hall on Wheels: for Fairness and Respect in the Legislative Process

  • This event has passed.
Town Hall on Wheels: for Fairness and Respect in the Legislative Process the Enforcement of the PA Constitution and Quality Environmental Legislation in PennsylvaniaLabor Day Weekend, 2021 (Sept. 3rd-5th)Quality legislation continues to be proposed but neglected in the PA legislature, without discussion. Committee chairs currently have the power to prevent bills from even getting a vote in their committees and even to alter bills from their original purpose, and have done so in the recent past. The Town Hall on Wheels is an event meant to publicize, generate support for, and begin drafting legislation this upcoming Labor Day weekend, Sept. 3-5, 2021. Issues discussed will include enforcement of the PA Constitution’s requirement that no bill shall be altered from it’s original purpose via the legislative process, as well as requirements that mandate each representative’s legislation be given a fair hearing and vote, such as giving every member of the opportunity to create – have discussion – and receive a vote on – one bill each year.A caravan of bikes and cars will begin at environmental Chairman Metcalf’s office in Cranberry and Sen. Argall’s office in Pottsville. These are two of PA’s most flagrant abusers of the legislative process. Participants from PA Environmental and Government Reform groups will meet up in State College on Sunday and the media outlets along the two routes will be notified of this effort to end this abuse of power. If you would like to participate in any way (bike, drive, money, editorials, etc.) Contact Jim Highland [email protected] P.O. Box 682, Grove City, PA.
