    Deer Hunting Licenses

    Proposed legislation would change the way antlerless deer hunting licenses are issued in Pennsylvania. The licenses are currently distributed through county treasurers' offices, which Rep.

    Thefts

He says the this most often occurs when only one person is authorized to sign the checks. DePasquale says many small volunteer groups need to be proactive in preventing this type of crime, and authorizing additional signers is a good first step.
