    Governor to get PA carbon bill

    SUNBURY – One of the Valley’s state senators believes legislative scrutiny is needed when it comes to regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the reduction of carbon emissions. State Senator Gene Yaw (R-23rd, Loyalsock Township) was a recent guest on WKOK’s On The Mark program talking about a bill he supports.   Yaw said, “This bill does not extend any time periods.  We still have to have a 32 percent reduction by 2030.  But, what it does is brings the legislature into the mix.  In this era of transparency, it seems to me that you would want the people who you elect to make some decisions, because there are policy decisions as to how…

VIDEO HERE: Barletta: Airstrikes needed to happen months ago

SUNBURY – Airstrikes against ISIS should have happened months ago.  That is according to U.S. Congressman Lou Barletta (R-11), who says he supports the president’s initiative, but is not confident it will work. Speaking in Sunbury, Barletta says, “For over a year now, we have been talking about doing something to try and stop them when they were a small group of 1,500.  Now they are over 30,000.  They are well funded and have made it clear that they are coming to the United States to attack us.  I support the president in the airstrikes, but I do believe it was a little late.  Nonetheless, the option of doing nothing was not a good choice…
