House unanimously adopts Readshaw resolutions honoring historical archives, state’s licensed acupuncturists

HARRISBURG, Oct. 9 – The House today unanimously adopted two resolutions introduced by state Rep. Harry Readshaw, D-Allegheny.

H.R. 1060 honors the importance of the state’s archives and the staff who preserve them. H.R. 1061 recognizes the medical contributions made by the state’s more than 700 licensed acupuncturists.  

Readshaw said he introduced H.R. 1060 to highlight the important role the state archives play in preserving the commonwealth’s heritage.

“This resolution emphasizes the importance of our state archives and honors the people who serve as guardians of those documents,” Readshaw said. “The commonwealth has an incredibly rich history, and it’s essential to preserve the records that document that history so they can be passed to future generations. These documents tell our story, as Pennsylvanians.”

Readshaw noted that the House of Representatives Archives has served as the official archive for records of elected members, committees and administrative agencies for nearly 40 years. He urged state residents to visit their local archives and libraries to learn more about the commonwealth’s rich heritage.

A second Readshaw resolution recognizes the many contributions made by acupuncture and other traditional Oriental medicine and honors the commonwealth’s licensed acupuncturists.

“I introduced H.R. 1061 to highlight the many ways in which the commonwealth’s licensed acupuncturists contribute to Pennsylvanians’ health,” Readshaw said. “Licensed practitioners of acupuncture and other forms of traditional Oriental medicine are dedicated to the highest professional standards and can provide a wide range of health benefits, from reducing pain and inflammation to relieving stress and improving well-being. Even as medical science advances, the efficacy of these ancient treatments endures, and in the right hands, yields great benefits.”
