We’re For Jobs!
Last week I joined my House and Senate colleagues, organized labor, and other economic development organizations at two rallies in Harrisburg and Wilkes-Barre to urge Governor Wolf to sign House Bill 1100, the Energy and Fertilizer Manufacturing Tax Credit.

Community Dek Hockey rink to Be built at Toyota Sportsplex
A multi-functional dek hockey rink and community event space will be the newest addition to the Toyota SportsPlex complex in Wilkes-Barre thanks in part to a $250,000 Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Tourism grant.
For more than twenty years, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have been great teammates with the city of Wilkes-Barre and Luzerne County in making professional hockey a cornerstone of our tourism economy that attracts thousands of visitors, creates hundreds of jobs, and leverages millions of dollars in private investment in northeastern Pennsylvania.
The rink development is part of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation’s Project Power Play. In addition to the state grant, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and Highmark Corporate Giving have each pledged $40,000 to the project. Construction on the rink is expected to begin later this spring and be completed by mid summer.
