Capitol Quick Hits for 6.23.14

Here are the highlights from news conferences, rallies, and advocacy days held in the Capitol today: 

  • Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion) hosted an event to officially recognize June 22, 2014, as “Lineworker Appreciation Day” in Pennsylvania. Rep. Oberlander explained that HR 566 honors the thousands of men and women risking their lives every day to ensure the reliable delivery of electricity throughout the state and recognizes the tireless efforts, extreme conditions, personal sacrifice, and risk involved for those men and women.
  • Pro-immigration advocates rallied on the Capitol steps to urge legislators to pass HB 1648, which would allow undocumented immigrants to receive driver’s licenses. Valerie Birch said she was proud to be a part of the group rallying for drivers’ licenses. “We might speak different languages but we are all Pennsylvanians,” announced Birch. “We are in a state in a nation of many languages and cultures. We all need to come together and be part of one community.”
