Swearing-In Day Begins 2021-22 Legislative Session on January 5

New and returning members of the Pennsylvania Senate will be sworn into office to begin the 2021-22 Legislative Session on January 5.

Swearing-in day will look a bit different this year due to COVID-19. Only a limited number of guests will be permitted on the Senate Floor and in the Senate Gallery for the ceremony, and the usual television viewing areas in the Capitol Complex will be closed.

A live stream of the ceremony will be available at www.pasenategop.com.

Property Tax Rent Rebate Deadline is December 31

Time is running out for eligible seniors and individuals with disabilities to submit applications for the state’s popular Property Tax Rent Rebate program for taxes or rent paid in 2019. Applications must be completed and postmarked by December 31 in order to be considered.

Applicants can file online or print claim forms to be mailed to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.

If you have already submitted an application, you can check the status of your claim at www.revenue.pa.gov by selecting “Where’s my Property Tax/Rent Rebate” or by calling 1-888-222-9190.

Virtual PA Farm Show Kicks Off January 9

Although all in-person events for the 2021 Pennsylvania Farm Show have been cancelled due to COVID-19, many exhibits and events will still take place virtually. A schedule of events details the exhibits that will be available each day from January 9-16.

The exhibits will be focused on education and awareness, and the competitive events will not require the purchase of an animal. Forms and registration information are available here.

Reminder: Renew Dog Licenses Now

The Department of Agriculture is reminding Pennsylvania dog owners that all dogs three months of age or older must be licensed by January 1.

The license fee is $8.50 annually, or $51.50 for a lifetime license. The fee is reduced to $6.50 annually or $31.50 for a lifetime license if the dog is spayed or neutered, and additional discounts are available for seniors and individuals with disabilities.

Licenses can be purchased through your local county treasurer and other licensing agents. Applications are available here.

Goodbye 2020 — Happy New Year!

After one of the most challenging and tumultuous years in recent history, many Pennsylvanians are anxious to turn the page on 2020 and begin looking forward to a brighter year ahead. As we close the book on this year, I extend my warmest wishes to all community residents for a happier, healthier and more successful year in 2021!
