Krueger-Braneky joins White House for Legislative Leadership Briefing

WASHINGTON, DC, July 21 – Joining several of her fellow legislators from Pennsylvania and a total of 15 state legislators from around the country, state Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky, D-Delaware, attended a State Legislative Leadership Briefing at the White House today to discuss domestic policy priorities and opportunities for collaboration between state legislators and the White House.

“Having the opportunity to come to the White House for a briefing on President Obama’s policies and how they can work together with what we do at the state level was extremely informative and beneficial to all who attended,” Krueger-Braneky said. “So many of the topics we deal with in Pennsylvania, such as education, middle-class economics and criminal justice reform, are also issues at the federal level. It’s only natural to discuss how we can work together to achieve our shared goals and make progress moving forward.”

Additional topics included:

  • Gun violence prevention;
  • Economic opportunity for women;
  • Zika virus; and
  • Opioids.

Joining Krueger-Braneky were Reps. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., and Kevin Schreiber, D-York.

“There are a myriad of issues facing Pennsylvania and the country as a whole that must be solved to truly put us on a path forward, and working together at the federal, state and local level can help us come together, solve our issues and move in a positive direction,” Krueger-Braneky said.
