Galloway introduces legislation to include digital wallets in Breach of Personal Information Notification Act

(1 day ago)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 18 – As a longtime proponent of consumer protections, state Rep. John Galloway is introducing legislation that would seek to include digital wallets in the Breach of Personal Information Notification Act. “Digital wallets have made it so easy for us to pay for everyday things, but there is a great risk that digital wallets could be easily hacked, and our savings stolen from us,” Galloway, D-Bucks, said. “My legislation would protect Pennsylvanians by making sure that they are notified as soon as their wallets have been hacked so they can begin to take steps to protect any other electronic data that may have been exposed as well as immediately start the process of repairing the damage caused by the hack.” The legislation is now being circulated for co-sponsors and will be introduced soon.

Galloway’s children’s mental healthcare clearinghouse bill passes House

(Jun 14, 2021)

HARRISBURG, June 14 – State Rep. John Galloway announced his bill to create a mental healthcare clearinghouse for children unanimously passed in the House today. Galloway’s bill, H.B. 409, would create a mental health care services clearinghouse to help school personnel connect families to community mental health resources. “Children’s untreated mental health issues are one of the most pressing issues our society faces,” said Galloway, D-Bucks. “Our schools lack the resources needed to provide care and services to their students. The clearinghouse would create a one-stop shop for mental health resources, saving schools time and resources and improve both the quantity and quality of mental health programming available to those in need.” The mental health care services clearinghouse would be a publicly accessible registry of mental health care resources available across the commonwealth. The clearinghouse would help school personnel connect families to community mental health resources. In addition, this clearinghouse would allow school personnel to learn about and take advantage of existing programs and resources for their schools. “Early detection and treatment of mental health issues literally saves lives, mitigates effects of illnesses and gives children the skills to cope with them,” Galloway said. According to Galloway, the National Alliance on Mental Illness states that one in five youths under Read more
