On July 1, 2009 The Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act goes into effect. The legislation was passed to protectconsumers from those "bad" contractors.  Now the Contractors will be required to register with the Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection while maintaining a minimum insurance coverage and will be required to use Contracts that contain important information, including start date, completion date, a description of the work being performed and the consumers' rights under the low.  Contractors will also be required to obtain a registration number and use their number on all items and disclose whether or not the contractor has had his license suspended or revoked by any state or municipality or from any government-funded home improvement program.  Good news for all.

Camp Minsi will remain open space. Camp Minsi, the Boy Scout camp on Route 940 in Pocono Summit will not be allowed to be turned into commercial or residential development.  Good news for traffic congestion, etc.   Camp Minsi is approximately 1200 acres that surrounds Stillwater Lake. This property was donated in 1949 to the Boy Scouts by Samuel Rubel of New York City.  What a generous and wonderful donation it was, for sure. Read about it on www.poconorecord.com.

I have been surfing onnlie more than 3 hours these days, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
