DeLissio to host two free shred events this May

(Apr 16, 2021)

PHILADELPHIA, April 1 6 – State Rep. Pam DeLissio is hosting free shredding events this spring to help residents of the 194 th Legislative District safely dispose of unneeded documents. “Shredding documents that contain confidential information helps to protect against identity theft. These events are a great occasion to clear out old papers and discard them safely,” said DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila. Two shred events will be held in May, following the event scheduled for April 17 in Lower Merion. “Constituents are welcome to come to one or to all. Shredding events prove to be very important opportunities to address personal papers containing sensitive information in a safe and secure manner, particularly as folks have spent more time home cleaning out drawers and files,” DeLissio said. Times, dates and locations for May are as follows: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 15, Main Street Movie Theatre parking lot, 3720-40 Main St., Manayunk. 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Sunday, May 23, Welsh Valley Middle School parking lot, 325 Tower Lane, Narberth. There is a limit of four grocery bags or banker boxes per household, and attendees may be asked to transport their materials from their vehicles to the bins for shredding. Attendees must wear masks and practice social distancing. Newspapers, magazines and journals will not be accepted. The events will end sooner than scheduled if the Read more

E-BLAST: Working to address speeding on Henry Avenue; 105th Town Hall Meeting

(Apr 01, 2021)

Most weeks in Harrisburg are busy weeks, and last week was no exception. I did have the opportunity to introduce an amendment to H.B. 606 that should help with speeding on Henry Avenue. This amendment has the support of many in the district. The amendment passed with 140 yeas and 61 nays. You can read the article I wrote on this topic here and hear my remarks on the House floor in the video below. Read more

East Falls Now Article: All the Speed We Don’t Need

(Apr 01, 2021)

Henry Avenue! Poor Henry. We disparage his name on many, many days and not because it is anything ‘he’ has done but due to those who traverse the street so named and do so at irresponsible rates of speed while making questionable decisions by driving aggressively through a residential neighborhood. It is, after all, Henry Avenue and not Henry Highway. Actually, Mayor Alexander Henry would probably be surprised at how often his name is invoked and especially related to the matter of speeding. In the time he was mayor, from 1867 to 1888, speeding cars was not one of the problems with which he had to contend. In this article, I am writing to advise the community that I have submitted an amendment to HB606, a bill regarding the use of radar by local law enforcement. My amendment will expand the Roosevelt Boulevard pilot project to include speed cameras on Henry Avenue. I had submitted this same amendment to the original pilot legislation in 2018 and the amendment was removed in the Senate, with no explanation. My plan this time is to ensure that we have an organized community effort to advocate for this amendment and to enlist as much support as possible. The Roosevelt Boulevard pilot project is up and running. Roosevelt Boulevard is a 12-mile, 12-lane arterial where speeding and fatalities due to speeding occur. It is my belief, since this is a pilot project to help determine the benefit of speed cameras on other roads, that Henry Read more

Children and Youth meeting focuses on the state of child care and the impact of the pandemic

(Mar 12, 2021)

HARRISBURG, March 12 – State Rep. Pam DeLissio, minority chair of the House Children and Youth Committee, participated in a public hearing on Monday to understand the impact COVID-19 has had on working families and the state of child care across the commonwealth. “Since the pandemic began, some child care facilities have closed and many people, especially women, have left the workforce to care for their young children,” said DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila. “This sector is vitally important to economic recovery and I look forward to working with my colleagues in the legislature to find ways to help child care providers recover economically.” The committee heard from the Office of Child Development about financial relief and how federal dollars are awarded to child care facilities. The Pennsylvania Child Care Association also testified and stressed that staff turnover and the inability to attract new hires continues to impact providers’ ability to operate efficiently. State subsidized child care rates have not been raised in years. The committee also had the opportunity to hear about the Keystone STARS Program. Keystone STARS program supports all early care and education programs to improve program quality. The Keystone STARS Performance Standards function as a tool to support continuous quality improvement that impacts services to the children and families using child care in Pennsylvania, commented DeLissio.
