Thank you House Committee on Natural Resources & the Subcommittee on Federal Lands for holding a hearing on H.R. 2991!

We thank the House Committee on Natural Resources and the Subcommittee on Federal Lands for holding a hearing on H.R. 2991. After the mark-up process we ask Committee Chairman Rob Bishop and Subcommittee Chairman Tom McClintock to report H.R. 2991 out of Committee to the full U.S. House of Representatives for a vote.

On April 11th, 2018 Susquehanna Heritage President Mark Platts joined Congressman Lloyd Smucker and Columbia Mayor Leo Lutz at the U.S. House Federal Lands Subcommittee hearing on H.R. 2991, the Susquehanna National Heritage Act. U.S. Representative Lloyd Smucker testified in support of the bill, along with Mayor Lutz. Thank you Congressman Smucker and Mayor Lutz for your great support of the Susquehanna National Heritage Area! Next will be the committee mark-up of the legislation and we hope the committee will report H.R. 2991 to the full U.S. House of Representatives for a vote before the end of the current session of Congress in December.

Testimony delivered by Mayor Lutz on H.R. 2991 can be read here.

Watch the hearing on H.R. 2991 here. (The hearing starts at 25:38/H.R. 2991 runs from 1:01:03 to 1:21:28.)
