This month's local TV report by Senator David G. Argall focuses on doing business with state government. Sponsored by Argall and both the Berks and Schuylkill Chambers of Commerce, the seminar features various presentations covering all aspects of Pennsylvania's commitment to growing jobs and our local economy.

"Instead of expanding state government, this seminar demonstrates the state's commitment to grow private sector jobs," said Argall, who has been working with local employers to find ways to help Pennsylvania businesses grow and prosper. "Awarding government contracts through a cost-conscious competitive process to the private sector is a win for taxpayers, job creators, job seekers as well as the state."

The seminar features presentations by Pennsylvania's Department of General Services and the Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance.
