Gov's Council

Gov. Corbett has named the advisory council for hunting, trapping, fishing, boating and conservation issues.

News release should be out shortly.

No separate youth council this time, which I think is a mistake, but there are four teens on the council, aged 14 to 18.

Some folks' learnin' curves just look like circles...3A Camp/also hunt 4B

News for Immediate Release

Feb. 27, 2012

Governor Corbett Announces Hunting, Fishing and Conservation Advisory Council

Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett today issued an executive order creating the Governor’s Advisory Council for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation to help ensure the concerns of hunters, anglers and others are heard at the highest levels of state government.

“Pennsylvania’s rich outdoor heritage, including activities such as hunting, fishing, trapping, birding, wildlife viewing, boating and hiking, are enjoyed by more than 5.9 million Pennsylvania residents and visitors each year,” Governor Corbett said. “These outdoor recreational activities annually generate more than $5.4 billion for Pennsylvania’s economy, which makes this council’s input very critical.”

The order consolidates several previous advisory councils into a single entity. The new council consists of individuals concerned with the recreational use and conservation of Pennsylvania’s natural resources, including hunters, trappers, anglers and other conservationists. Council members will:

Review and make written recommendations to the governor regarding any issue appropriate for governmental action that might affect the recreational use and conservation of the state’s wildlife and other natural resources.
Review and make written recommendations regarding policies adopted or regulations issued by the Fish and Boat Commission, the Game Commission, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources or the Department of Environmental Protection, that might affect the recreational uses of the state’s natural resources.
Review and make written recommendations regarding pending legislation and proposed regulations impacting natural resources.

The panel includes a diverse representation of stakeholders, including four members between the ages of 14 and 18. It does not include any elected statewide officials, legislators or employees of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Fish and Boat Commission or the Game Commission.

Governor Corbett also appointed Justin N. Leventry as his liaison to the council. Leventry, a legislative specialist with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, is an avid outdoorsman who lives in Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County.

The council will be chaired by Richard Mislitsky of Mt. Holly Springs, Cumberland County.

Members appointed by the governor today are:
Ron Andrews, Emporium, Cameron County
Rodney S. Ansell, Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland County
C. Thomas Baldrige, North Huntingdon, Westmoreland County
Thomas Boop, Sunbury, Northumberland County
Dale C. Butler, Noxen, Wyoming County

Re: Gov's Council

Doesn't look like it is stacked by the gas lobby, at least by where the people live.
Other than that, will we see any biographies of the members? An agenda of issues to discuss? Anybody know any of them?

Re: Gov's Council

There is at least one gas indusry person on there. Know several of he folks; but not all.

My guess is, first order of business will be the two vacant PGC BOC positions, followed by two at fish and boat.

Re: Gov's Council

First name on the list, Ron Andrews. If he is the "Ron Andrews" that I believe he is, he also owns a couple business's near Tunkhannock Pa. A very avid hunter/Sportsman. I don't know a lot about him personaly, I have met him a few times and know his son. They are quality people from any dealings I have had with them.

Your never to old to learn something stupid

Re: Gov's Council

I only know eight of them personally though I have heard about several of the others. From those I know it seems to be a reasonable representation of the state’s conservation minded people.
