PA's HealthyWoman program

(Mar 24, 2017)

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is offering a program to provide free breast and cervical cancer screenings to Pennsylvania residents. Early detection is, of course, key in fighting these debilitating diseases, so I strongly encourage anyone who has not had recent testing done to learn more about this opportunity. For those who meet eligibility requirements, HealthyWoman offers clinical breast exams, mammograms, pelvic examinations and Pap smears, and follow-up diagnostic tests for abnormal results. Eligibility is based on age, Pennsylvania residency, income and insurance status. For a full list of eligibility requirements and details on the program, please click here . Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women, and since the risk increases with age, it’s vitally important to schedule regular checkups with your doctor or use the HealthyWoman program. As always, if you had any questions or concerns about any state government-related issue, please don’t hesitate to contact my office. Read more

HARRISBURG, Jan. 24 – As the 2017-18 legislative session gets into full swing, state Rep. Tina Davis, said she is ready to work with and on behalf of Bucks County and the 141 st District. Davis was sworn into office Monday by Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Debra Todd. She was unable to attend the official swearing-in ceremonies on Jan. 3 due to a medical issue.

Davis also received her standing committee assignments for the new session. She will serve on the House Consumer Affairs, Gaming Oversight, Insurance, Judiciary and Professional Licensure committees.

Davis: New law should help attract, retain volunteer firefighters, EMS

(Jan 20, 2017)

LEVITTOWN, Jan. 20 – A new law passed by the General Assembly last session will help municipalities retain dwindling numbers of volunteer firefighters and emergency medical responders, said state Rep. Tina Davis, who voted for it. Act 172 of 2016 allows municipalities to grant tax credits on Earned Income and property taxes to active volunteer firefighters and emergency medical service volunteers. The tax credit can be up to 20 percent of the volunteer's tax liability. “This is a great opportunity to not only say thank you to those who volunteer and put themselves in harm’s way for others, but to attract and recruit more volunteers,” said Davis, D-Bucks. “Our ranks of volunteer first responders have been steadily decreasing, and we need to be doing more to reverse this trend. “Volunteer fire departments and EMS organizations save Pennsylvania taxpayers nearly $10 billion each year.” Municipalities may base the credit on the number of calls a volunteer responds to; the volunteer's level of participation in training; or time spent on fundraising, equipment maintenance and other functions. Local officials say the hours required for training, responding to incidents and raising funds keep potential volunteers away. The number of volunteer firefighters in Pennsylvania has dropped from 300,000 in 1977 to about 50,000 today. Read more

 

Pa. granted extension on REAL ID compliance

(Jan 20, 2017)

Pennsylvania received a limited extension through June 6 to update driver’s licenses to meet requirements under the federal REAL ID Act of 2005, but the General Assembly must still act quickly to comply. Without action, Pennsylvanians could be denied access to federal facilities and eventually even airline travel. Specifically, Pennsylvanians will need federally approved ID for air travel beginning Jan. 22, 2018, and with the limited extension we will need a federally approved ID to access federal buildings, nuclear power plants and military bases beginning June 7, 2017. Rest assured, I am following this issue very closely and am doing everything possible to ensure that we pass comprehensive changes to comply with the federal government. Please visit https://www.dhs.gov/real-id/pennsylvania for the most up to date information on the requirements and remember that my office can help you obtain a birth certificate or driver’s license.

License Your Dog in PA

(Dec 22, 2016)

All dogs three months or older must be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year. Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs. An annual license is $8.50 and a lifetime license is $51.50. If the animal is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.50 and lifetime is $31.50. Discounts are available to older adults and people with disabilities. The small license fee helps the millions of dogs in the state by funding the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement. Dog licenses are available from your local county treasurer and other licensing agents. Reasons for dog licensing: It’s the law. All dogs three months or older must have a current license. If your dog gets lost, a license is the best way to get him back. A license helps animal control and shelters identify your dog and get him back home safely. The cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one. Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog. License fees support animal control. The annual fee you pay to license your dog helps keep shelters running and supports the work of the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement, which is responsible for ensuring the welfare of dogs, regulating dangerous dogs and overseeing annual licensing and rabies vaccinations.
