Senator Yaw Talks with WENY News on Monday

WILLIAMSPORT – State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) this week provided a legislative recap of the 2021-2022 legislative session in Harrisburg to WENY News.  Today, lawmakers will reconvene in Harrisburg for the start of the new legislative session.

Yaw serves Pennsylvania’s 23rd Senatorial District since 2008, which covers Bradford, Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga and Union Counties. Some of his proudest accomplishments during last session include the over $200 million Clean Streams Fund, which also provided dollars for the newly created Agriculture Conservation Assistance Program (ACAP), sponsored by Yaw. 

“Helping farmers and landowners to do stream bank repair, riparian buffers, grasses, keep animals out of the streams, fencing, all those types of things,” said Yaw.

Yaw served as Chairman of the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee during the previous session, where he is a strong advocate for Pennsylvania energy production, like natural gas. 

“I’m tired of apologizing for the riches that Pennsylvania has. We have the most diverse energy portfolio, I think, of any state in the country. We have everything,” said Yaw.
