House and Senate Contact Information

The House Appropriation Committee will review the proposed budget for DCNR (including Keystone) on February 28. (The Senate did so on 2/16.) Committee members will ask DCNR Secretary Allen questions and express their thoughts about the Governor’s proposal. We want as many of them as possible to publicly express their strong support for Keystone and unwillingness to see it slashed and eliminated. Please contact House Committee members before 2/28 to share how the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund has benefitted your community and ask them to protect Keystone.

Committee members will often ask for suggestions for questions that might ask at the hearing. Click here for examples of questions that might be asked in regards to the Keystone Fund:

    The Keystone program of Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is vital to our state and to small communities who just do not have the resources to preserve and maintain our parks and greenspaces.

    This program has provided a very effective and actively used Little League Park for the young people of Brownsville. It has built character for many young girls and guys and has been able to direct the youth to have direction and purpose in their lives.

    We absolutley need this program and I urge all of you to vote in favor of keeping this program available for our state.

    Thank you
