SOUDERTON, July 23 -- State Reps. Steve Malagari and Liz Hanbidge, both D-Montgomery, led a public discussion Monday to raise awareness about the rising threat of the spotted lanternfly. "The invasive insect is destroying trees, crops, landscapes and properties right here in Montgomery County," Malagari explained.

"The agriculture industry in Montgomery County and surrounding counties plays a critical role in driving our local economy and creating and sustaining jobs," Hanbidge said. "The spotted lanternfly is putting the success of our local communities and Commonwealth at-risk. This event was an important step in sounding the alarm to prevent further damage to agriculture in our communities." The discussion was a collaborative effort that included Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, state Sen.

Malagari supports bill to remove barrier for junior firefighters

(Jun 19, 2019)

State Rep. Steve Malagari today announced the passage of legislation that would help remove a barrier to getting young people involved with volunteer fire companies. House Bill 1522, which passed 200-1, would eliminate a requirement that junior firefighters complete Department of Conservation and Natural Resources training related to wildfires before they can engage in firefighting activities. Junior firefighters would still complete other training with the State Fire Commissioner and be subject to many other requirements, and any volunteer fire company that felt the DCNR training was relevant could still require it. “As volunteer fire companies look for ways to encourage more young people to become involved, eliminating this requirement makes sense,” said Malagari, D-Montgomery. “My local fire companies have shown support for this bill, and I was pleased to support it on their behalf.” Malagari added that it’s critical to support fire companies and other emergency responders, so they can continue their lifesaving work. “Our local fire companies and emergency responders work to keep us all safe in the most dangerous circumstances. I appreciate their work and will continue to look for opportunities to support them,” Malagari said. Recently, several local EMS and fire companies were awarded state grants totaling more than $122,000. Grants were awarded to: Fairmount Fire Co. - $12,182 Hatfield Volunteer Fire Co. 1 - Read more
