It's time to get into the holiday spirit!

The Capitol Christmas tree is shining bright after the official tree-lighting ceremony this week. The 18-foot tall Douglas Fir tree comes from Crystal Spring Tree Farm in Lehighton, Carbon County, and was donated by the Pennsylvania Christmas Tree Growers Association. This year's tree is decorated with more than 800 LED lights and 500 ornaments created by senior citizens and preschoolers across the state. The tree will remain on display in the Capitol Rotunda throughout the holiday season.

In 2014 the legislature passed Act 51. This was passed on the direction of a bipartisan, bicameral commission established by the legislature to deal with the inequities in the current education funding formula.

They came up with an excellent compromise on a formula that would be more equitable for every school district across the state.
