Local high school students featured in Argall’s monthly TV show

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall’s (R-Schuylkill/Berks) monthly television show features local high school students who participated in his recent Senator for a Day program at Penn State’s Schuylkill Campus.

The student government seminar invited students to debate and vote on issues currently facing the General Assembly, including school property tax elimination, drug testing for welfare recipients and privatizing state liquor sales.

“The Senator for a Day program is designed to give students an in-depth look at the legislative process, including the ability to consider bills in committee, offer amendments to legislation and debate the merits of various proposals among their peers,” Argall said. “It is always interesting to see how these proposals grow and evolve as students share their perspectives.”

Students from 10 local school districts participated in the event, including Blue Mountain, Mahanoy Area, Marian Catholic, Minersville Area, Nativity BVM, North Schuylkill Area, Pottsville Area, Saint Clair Area, Schuylkill Haven Area and Tamaqua Area.

The program will air on:
