Hiller is to open the 122nd con

year’s accomplishments, and
offering a vision of the future.
With more than 33,000 mem

Stale Grange has strengths in its
legislative branch and grass-roots
"It is in Grange meetings where good legisla

Grange interests while serving the agricultural
and rural communities."
Hiller cited such legislative accomplishments
for the past year as the Deep Mine Mediation
Project: helping to block the establishment of
consumptive user fees for agriculture as prop
osed by the mulli-state/federal agency, Susque

relief for conservation easements (they must be
taxed according to ag use); and securing funding
for the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary
School and agricultural research at Penn State
‘There are many areas where Grange policy
must be inserted and sustained,” Hiller said.
“Grange influence and integrity remain high, and
we must continue to expand our list of legislative
accomplishments while maintaining our vigi
lance in Harrisburg and Washington.”
There are about 75 resolutions to be discussed
during the convention, including such issues as
emissions testing, tort reform, property owners’
rights, and agricultural zoning exemptions.
A highlight of the five-day convention is to be
addresses from the endorsed Republican and
Democratic gubernatorial candidates.

of Johnstown, is scheduled to speak first, at 1:35
p.m. Monday., while Republican candidate U.S.
Rep. Tom Ridge, of Erie, is to speak on Oct. 27 at
“We’re delighted that the candidates have
agreed to deliver their agricultural and rural plat
forms before our delegate body only two weeks
prior to the election,” Hiller said. “Their appear
