TOWANDA - Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) announced today her monthly schedule of satellite office hours in Sullivan Counties for the month of August.

"A number of new laws were enacted over the summer, and my staff and I have been busily answering questions about the new state budget and new laws pertaining to public safety, small games of chance and expansion of the fire and EMS grant program," Pickett said. "In addition to answering questions about state legislation and offering assistance with state programs, my staff can also help with a number of driver's license-related issues. Anyone who is in need of a form of photo identification - to comply with the state's new voter ID law - should also contact my office for assistance."

Sullivan County residents who are in need of state assistance can visit Pickett's satellite office at the Sullivan County Courthouse in Laporte on Wednesday, Aug. 15, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. The phone number there is (570) 946-7673.

Pickett operates her main full-time offices at 321 Main St., Towanda, phone (570) 265-3124 and 106 West Packer Ave., Sayre, phone (570) 888-9011. More information is available 24 hours a day on Pickett's website at RepPickett.com or on her Facebook fan page at Facebook.com/RepPickett.
