|Subject:||Legislation to Establish Adopt-A-River Program|
| In the near future, I will re-introduce HB 519 from the 2015-2016 Legislative Session, which will establish the “Adopt-A-River” program within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The program will function similar to PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway Program. I believe that this legislation will help restore Pennsylvania’s rivers, spark an interest in volunteerism in our state and help conserve natural resources at a limited cost to citizens of the Commonwealth. Each individual or group that volunteers will be assigned a specific river or stream segment of their choice, if possible, and will be responsible for removing litter from the river.
The following members co-sponsored HB 519 in the 2015-16 Session:
SCHLOSSBERG, CONKLIN, BOBACK, SCHREIBER, THOMAS, SCHWEYER, BOBACK, SCHLOSSBERG, FREEMAN, GABLER, RAVENSTAHL, TOEPEL, FRANKEL, D. COSTA, LONGIETTI, MURT, MATZIE, BROWNLEE, MULLERY, READSHAW, DEASY, JAMES, DeLISSIO, GOODMAN, COHEN, GIBBONS, BENNINGHOFF, GILLEN, McCARTER AND SAMUELSON
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Introduced as HB1052
