I hope you will join me for this worthwhile event. All the information can be seen above.

House Bill 555 would require that a group or association health plan being offered is fully insured, provides essential health benefits and protects small businesses and employees. The association health plan coverage would be guaranteed issued and renewable, prohibiting denying coverage based on a pre-existing condition, providing essential health benefits and plans comparable to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans.

When small businesses group together, they are able to spread out the risk across the group and negotiate for discounted health insurance coverage the same way large businesses currently purchase health benefits on the group insurance market. This practice already occurs in more than 30 states and enacting the same in Pennsylvania will enable our small businesses to reduce health care costs through group buying power.

Federal law and regulations currently do not allow the small businesses in an association to be treated as a large employer. This legislation simply restores the right of small businesses to group together.

House Bill 555 has been referred to the House Insurance Committee for consideration.

I am teaming up with Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-Allegheny/Washington) for our first annual Sportsmen’s and Gun Safety Expo.

If you enjoy boating, hunting, fishing or other outdoor activities, please participate at this event. This is an opportunity to become more educated and familiar with the related state and local government services available to you.

Featured panelists include Honorable Justice Anthony Saveikis; Colin Morell, ranger supervisor at Raccoon Creek State Park, John Hart, police chief of Findlay Township; Michael Johnson, conservation officer of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission; Evan McDaniel and Jason Raup, game wardens of the Pennsylvania Game Commission; Kevin Krause, chief deputy for the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office; and Rocco Gagliardi, trooper and public information officer for the Pennsylvania State Police.

In addition, the expo will feature a wide variety of state and local agencies and vendors showcasing opportunities to become more active in the great outdoors anytime of the year.

For more information, please call me office at 412-262-3780.

I hope to see you at each of these events.
