YORK – Coinciding with state budget negotiations at the state Capitol, Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) will hold a live telephone town hall event with local citizens on Monday, March 2 from 6 – 7 p.m.
“This live event will provide local citizens the opportunity to hear more about what I am working on at their state Capitol on their behalf,” Phillips-Hill said. “I look forward to fielding questions from York Countians during this event as well as asking for input on various legislative matters.”
As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Phillips-Hill is participating in every public hearing on the state budget. During budget hearings this week, she pressed PennDOT to find a resolution to the Mt. Rose Interchange debacle, and also pressed the Department of Community and Economic Development for greater oversight when it comes to state grants and tax credits.
Next week’s hearings include the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Environmental Protection and the Governor’s Budget Office, among state agencies and entities.
“I have made a concerted effort to press state agencies on issues I hear about from people all across York County. I am hopeful to get a few more issues to address during our upcoming telephone town hall,” she added.
Individuals who reside in the 28th Senatorial District are encouraged to participate and can sign up on Senator Phillips-Hill’s website at www.SenatorKristin.com or by calling her local office at 717-741-4648.
