More money for mental health services tops the list of legislative priorities in 2022 for Pennsylvania’s counties.

The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) released a list seven priorities last week. They include addressing the human services workforce shortage, broadband expansion, appropriate funding and reform for the Children and Youth System, promoting election integrity, 911 funding, and re-authorization, and election funding and resources.

Appearing on Tuesday’s Smart Talk to discuss the priorities are Lisa Schaffer, Executive Director, County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania and Daryl Miller, Bradford County Commissioner and CCAP President.
