Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr
Unanimous Passage of Senate Bill 922
On Tuesday, June 6, the State Senate unanimously approved Senate Bill 922, legislation I sponsored that is aimed at helping courts provide better treatment options to defendants addicted to opioids.
This bill is another tool that courts can use to combat this horrific epidemic and put defendants with addiction issues on the path to recovery. It is vital that we have programs and services in place to break the cycle of drug abuse and crime.
The Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) is recognizing youth groups for outstanding community service
The awards program recognizes the contributions youth groups make to improve the quality of life in Pennsylvania’s townships. Entrants in this year’s contest will vie for cash prizes of $500 each.
Township supervisors and county association officers can help identify and recognize such outstanding examples of community service by encouraging groups to enter the annual PSATS Youth Awards Contest.
Has a youth organization completed a community service project in your township or county? Has a Scout troop helped clean up a township park or a high school group developed an environmental program for residents? Has a local 4-H club held an event for children or adults or a church youth group volunteered to help elderly residents repair their homes?
Four winners will each receive $500 and a framed certificates, along with coverage in the Pennsylvania Township News and their local newspapers.
For full details and application deadline information visit: PSATS Award Programs.
