Join me for a Special Telephone Town Hall this Wednesday, August 5

Because of the importance of the ongoing state budget debate, I'm inviting you to join me Wednesday evening--and thousands of your neighbors--for a special Telephone Town Hall, focused on the state budget debateóand the more than 30 day budget stalemate. 

I look forward to hearing your questions and your ideas about the governorís vetoes and the issues surrounding the budget debate during my upcoming telephone town hall event this Wednesday (August 5) from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. 

During this Telephone Town Hall, I plan on asking many more poll questions than usual to get your opinions related to the governorís budget vetoes, education funding, pension reforms, property tax elimination, the taxing of Marcellus Shale, welfare reform and reducing the size of the General Assembly.

The telephone town hall format allows residents of the 29th Senatorial District to ask questions and share their perspectives on state and local issues from the comfort of their own home. Thousands of you will receive a call inviting you to participate a few minutes before 6 p.m. Wednesday.  Residents who use a cell phone or unlisted number can register for the telephone town hall through my website at or Cell phone users can also text ďArgallĒ to 313131 to be added to the call. 

One final option allowing you to participate is to call 1-877-229-8493 and enter PIN # 111786. 

The event will also feature a live audio stream page that allows computer, tablet and smartphone users to listen in and submit questions online. A link to the live audio stream will be available at immediately prior to the event.

FYI -- here are some of the questions I'll be asking the residents of Berks and Schuylkill Counties on Wednesday night:

  • The House and Senate passed a balanced budget before the June 30 deadline.  What do you think the governor should have done with that budget?
  • With one of the governorís vetoes, more than $5 Billion worth of school construction projects will not be funded.  Do you support or oppose the governorís veto?
  • The House and Senate recently voted to sell state-owned liquor store to the private sector, but this bill was vetoed by the governor. Do you support or oppose the sale of the stateís liquor system?
  • Pennsylvania currently faces a $50 billion shortfall for funding its pension obligations. The House and Senate recently passed a bill to change the current system, but Governor Wolf vetoed the bill. Do you support or oppose the governorís veto?
  • Several proposals are being floated in the Capitol to deal with school property tax reform, which one do you support?
  • Do you support a severance tax on Marcellus Shale to increase funding for public schools and other state programs?
  • Do you support efforts to reduce the size of the State Senate and State House of Representatives?

I hope you'll be able to join us!

As Chairman of the Senate Majority Policy Committee, Sen. Argall is the first Senator from the 29th District to serve in a leadership role since 1861. Argall represents all of Schuylkill County and northern and western Berks County.
