McDowell, Causer to Appear Before Committee on
Rural Community College Program

Pitt-Bradford President Emeritus Dick McDowell and State Rep. Marty Causer will appear before the House Education Committee tomorrow, during a briefing about bills that would create a rural community college pilot program.

McDowell and Causer will be discussing House Bill 1701. Its sister bill, Senate Bill 1000, sponsored by Senator Joe Scarnati, proposed creation of the program in the 11-county area of northwest and north central Pennsylvania.

The bills were introduced in response to a 2011 study of community college services by the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee.
