Please check this page frequently for news and important information for Shamokin Township residents, businesses and visitors.
The Shamokin Township Supervisors would like the residents and citizens of the state of Pennsylvania to be aware of HB2431 and SB1357, bills that are currently in the House and Senate trying to get passed. SB1357 would create a state commission to review and recommend changes to local government borders. HB2431 would radically change the way Pennsylvanians are governed by making community-based local governments unconstitutional and giving counties oversight of all municipal operations, including roads, land use, and zoning, sanitation, health and safety and law enforcement. Please contact your local state senator and representatives to urge them not to pass these two bills. More information can be found at www.psats.org.
