Legislators offer ways to improve police-community relations

(Jun 26, 2018)

HARRISBURG, June 25 – State Rep. Jordan Harris, D-Phila., along with Austin Davis, Ed Gainey and Jake Wheatley, all D-Allegheny, and other members from across the state, offered solutions on how to restore public trust and improve the professionalism of law enforcement, during a news conference today held at the Capitol. They hoped taking action will help improve police and community relations. The lawmakers unveiled a framework for legislative action, including three main initiatives: Establishing a licensing board or commission, similar to nearly every other professional occupation from doctors and lawyers to barbers, that would be able to independently take action regarding individuals’ ability to participate in that profession. They believe law enforcement should be no different. Creating a bipartisan caucus to bring policymakers together to offer ideas and best practices from across the commonwealth Enacting legislation similar to laws that apply to teachers, so that any incidents or transgressions related to their employment can be shared with potential employers. “As a parent, none of us want to ever bury a child,” said Wheatley, who is also Democratic chairman of the House Finance Committee. “We want to find ways on how we can prevent and possibly eliminate police shootings of unarmed men and women, particularly those of color.” The news conference was held almost a week after the death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose, Read more

 

Harris’ ‘clean slate’ passes in the Senate, heads to governor’s desk

(Jun 22, 2018)

HARRISBURG, June 22 – A bill that would give people with low-level, nonviolent criminal records an opportunity to have their record sealed from public view is now awaiting Gov. Tom Wolf’s signature after passing in the Senate, said state Rep. Jordan Harris, D-Phila. The Senate voted 49-0 in favor of House Bill 1419 , which Harris introduced with Rep. Sheryl Delozier, R-Cumberland, last year. “I’m pleased to see real and meaningful change happening in Pennsylvania,” Harris said. “This legislation will help fix many inefficiencies and inequities of the criminal justice system in our commonwealth, by clearing the darkness, shining a light and creating a path to do what is right for our people. There’s still work to do, but we’re moving in the right direction. I look forward to the governor’s signature in the upcoming weeks.” Harris added Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long from the Philadelphia Eagles along with former Eagles player Torrey Smith were very supportive of H.B. 1419. Harris was instrumental in passing Act 5 of 2016, which provides a process for sealing non-violent misdemeanors, but requires that former offenders file a sealing petition with a court. Under H.B. 1419, though, no action would be needed by former offenders to automatically seal their records. The legislation proposes the following structure for sealing records: Non-violent misdemeanor convictions – sealing would occur after a Read more

 

Taking a stand against family-separation policy

(Jun 21, 2018)

The events that have been unfolding along the U.S.-Mexico border have been heartbreaking and unbearable to see. As a mother, I cannot fathom the idea of having my children taken away from me, let alone the devastating impact on the children. This separation is a vile and inhumane act. I am firmly against the administration’s zero tolerance, family-separation immigration policy. I joined some of my colleagues from the House and the Senate for a rally Thursday in opposition to these actions. I also co-sponsored House Resolution 1000 , which would urge the president to immediately reverse the policy. While the president signed an executive order into place Wednesday that would stop the separation of immigrant children and parents, we all must make sure he stands by it. Using children as political pawns is a tasteless and horrifying tactic to gain immigration policy changes. I hope Congress will work on sensible reform and to ensure these events do not occur again. This country is supposed to be the land of the free for everyone, not just for some. Read more

 

McClinton motion delays vote on sentence risk assessment tool

(Jun 14, 2018)

HARRISBURG, June 14 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, today lauded the vote by the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing to postpone a move on the controversial sentence risk assessment tool. McClinton, who serves on the commission, made the motion to delay the vote after receiving several pieces of testimony against implementing the tool. The commission voted unanimously to postpone any action. The General Assembly mandated the commission to adopt a sentence risk assessment instrument to serve as an aid in the sentencing process in an effort to reduce the prison population. It would provide judges with facts and information to ensure a defendant receives the proper punishment while indicating if they need help, such as a drug treatment program. McClinton said she believes the risk assessment tool is unfair because it would adversely impact people of color. “During three public hearings, including one in Philadelphia where 33 people testified, we heard from citizens, the Philadelphia Bar Association and advocate groups opposing the sentence risk assessment tool because of its racial implications,” McClinton said. “We cannot allow a judge to put someone in a box when they have a family to support and bills to pay. They should be granted another chance to put their best foot forward and work to become a productive member of society. “I am pleased the commission decided to take a step back, digest and evaluate the comments Read more

 

PLBC lauds commission’s delay on risk assessment tool vote

(Jun 14, 2018)

HARRISBURG, June 14 – Members of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus released the following statement after the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing voted to postpone action on the sentence risk assessment tool: “I applaud the members of the commission for delaying their action to vote for a tool that is in no way a crystal ball of predicting whether a convicted offender will commit another crime after they have served their sentence,” said state Rep. Jordan Harris, chairman of the PLBC. “A tool of predictability has no place in the criminal justice system, especially in a program that could end badly for citizens of this commonwealth, particularly people of color. There is certainly no predictability to the degree of accuracy of this tool as a result, so we will continue to see bias against young black males who are incarcerated at a nine-to-one ratio than other races.” “As a former public defender in Philadelphia, I always encouraged judges to sentence the individuals who were in front of them. I often reminded these jurists that "sentencing guidelines" are simply "guidelines," state Rep. Joanna McClinton said. “Computer statistics should not determine one's sentence because they cannot accurately predict one's ability to be rehabilitated, make positive changes and be properly punished. I do not want to interfere with a judge's ability to fairly administer justice and will not be voting to Read more

 

Harris, Roebuck and Sen. Hughes introduce legislation pushing for free and affordable college for Pa. college and university students

(Jun 06, 2018)

HARRISBURG – June 6, 2018 – State Reps. Jordan Harris and James Roebuck, both D-Phila., joined Sen. Vincent J. Hughes, D-Phila./Montgomery, to introduce legislation for the Pennsylvania Promise initiative, a program that would make college free and affordable to many students across the state. The legislators were joined by guests from the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) President Ken Mash, dozens of APSCUF members, a student and other members of the House and Senate announcing Senate Bill 1111 and House Bill 2444. “Helping our students should be priority number one,” Senator Hughes said. “I’ve heard from far too many college students who are struggling to make ends meet. They’re starving and some can’t maintain stable housing throughout the school year. They need something like PA Promise to make college reality.” The bills would: Cover up to four years of tuition and fees for any recent high school graduate enrolled full-time at one of the Commonwealth’s 14 public community colleges. Cover up to four years of tuition and fees for any recent high school graduate with a family income less than or equal to $110,000 per year at one of the 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education or a state-related university. Cover room and board for any recent high school graduate with a family income less than or equal to $48,000 per year at a Read more

(Jun 06, 2018)

PHILADELPHIA, June 6 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, welcomed 400 families of the 191 st Legislative District to her Southwest Community Day, where the whole family could enjoy a day of fun and entertainment. “The weather held up and it turned out to be a great day to celebrate our community and empower neighbors with resources,” McClinton said. “I love to hear first-hand what issues our constituents face in their daily lives, and my staff was able to provide on-the-spot assistance.” The event featured 35 vendors that provide community resources and giveaways; main stage entertainment by the African Dance and Drum Ensemble, local churches, local hip hop/R & B artists as well as physical fitness activities; children’s activities, food and refreshments. Attendees also had the opportunity to gather information on a variety of state programs such as CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), Medicaid, and the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program. McClinton said she wanted to thank the community sponsors and partners, which included Greater Philadelphia Health Action, JEVS at Home, The Village, African Cultural Alliance of North America Inc. (ACANA), Africom, Mercy Health System, Giant, Cousin’s Supermarket, Shoprite, Philadelphia Water Ice Company, CoCo’s Chicken and Waffles and McDonald’s. “I am thrilled that we had 400 families in attendance.

Cruz: $1M grant awarded to Esperanza Health Center

(Jun 05, 2018)

PHILADELPHIA, June 5 – Following approval by the state Office of the Budget, state Rep. Angel Cruz announced a $1 million grant has been awarded to Esperanza Health Center to help fund construction for the new Kensington Health Center. The new facility will be built in the former bank building at 861 E. Allegheny Ave. and will be a state-of-the-art center providing primary medical and dental care as well as mental health and enabling services. “Anytime there is an opportunity to transform blight into some resourceful and sustainable in our community is a welcomed addition,” Cruz said. “I applaud Esperanza Health Center for making investments in our neighborhood that will not only improve the quality of life but also create jobs and help the economy.” "Esperanza Health Center is thrilled to receive this RACP award to help us build our comprehensive primary health care center. We are excited to invest in the health of this community and hope to be an anchor organization in the rebuilding of Kensington,” said Susan M. Post, executive director of Esperanza Health Center. “This project will allow us to provide high quality, faith-based primary health care and dental care to thousands of additional. We are thankful for this support to Esperanza Health Center and the people of Kensington." Construction is slated to begin this summer with the new health center expected to open in early 2019. RACP is administered by Read more

 

PLBC applauds PIAA vote to change headgear policy

(May 24, 2018)

HARRISBURG, May 24 – State Rep. Jordan Harris and state Sen. Shariff Street, both D-Phila., applauded the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association’s vote to change its policy on headgear following protest from the Muslim community. Harris, chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus, along with Street and members of the PLBC, joined the protest after 16-year-old Nasihah Thompson-King was excluded from participating in a basketball game because she refused to remove her hijab. Harris said, “I applaud the PIAA for protecting the rights of children of all faiths in this commonwealth to participate in athletic events while maintaining their religious and cultural identities. I thank my colleague Senator Street for taking the lead on this issue on behalf of the Black Caucus. Additionally, I thank members of the Muslim community and of all faiths for standing up against this injustice, but lastly, and most importantly, I thank young Ms. Nasihah Thompson-King for the strength of her convictions." Street said, “The PIAA’s historic decision to remove guidelines that unduly burden the free exercise of religion for student athletes is in compliance with the law, morally sound and victory for American values, the foundation of which was established here in Philadelphia in our great commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The collective action of my colleagues, the Muslim community and, most importantly, the courage of Nasihah Read more

 

Cruz resolution honors Puerto Rican service members killed in plane crash

(May 23, 2018)

HARRISBURG, May 23 – The House of Representatives unanimously adopted a resolution (H.R. 938) sponsored by state Rep. Angel Cruz which pays tribute to nine Puerto Rican service members who were killed in a noncombat-related military plane crash in Georgia on May 2. The service members were flying to Arizona to decommission the plane, a WC-130 attached to the Puerto Rico Air National Guard 156th Airlift Wing, when it crashed shortly after takeoff. The plane was used in relief efforts for several hurricanes in the Caribbean, including both Irma and Maria during the 2017 hurricane season. “These nine service members truly represent the commitment that Puerto Ricans living on the island and also here on the mainland have with our nation,” Cruz said. “We honor them for their service and dedication and hope not to repeat this tragedy ever again.” Cruz added the incident involving these service members brings the total number of noncombat-related crashes of military aircraft to seven, resulting in the deaths of 27 United States service members this year.

House committee advances Solomon-Mehaffie bill to assist parents with child care decisions

(May 23, 2018)

HARRISBURG, May 23 – The House Children and Youth Committee today advanced bipartisan legislation, co-authored by state Reps. Thomas Mehaffie (R-Dauphin) and Jared Solomon (D-Philadelphia), which would help parents and caregivers with the difficult decision of which child care to send their children. House Bill 1742 would require all state-licensed child care centers to post their Keystone STARS rating in a prominent location, on their websites and in informational enrollment materials given to parents. “Parents are faced with dozens of decisions every day that impact the well-being of their child, their family and their family’s future,” Mehaffie said. “With this bill, we hope to make one of the more daunting choices a little easier by putting each facility’s quality rating front and center.” The Keystone STARS program, operated by the state Office of Child Development and Early Learning, sets quality requirements for early childhood educators based on a four-star rating system. All licensed child care centers that meet the state’s health and safety requirements are required to be part of the Keystone STARS system. The Keystone STARS performance standards are grouped into four levels. The standards address staff qualifications and professional development, early learning programs, partnerships with family and the community, and leadership and management. The lawmakers added that they hope the new display requirements Read more

 

Rabb fights to stop sexual assaults in police custody by closing dangerous loophole

(May 11, 2018)

HARRISBURG, May 11 – State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., is fighting to close a dangerous legal loophole in Pennsylvania’s sexual assault law by pushing legislation that would better protect all residents. Currently in Pennsylvania, a police officer who sexually assaults a person in custody can use sexual consent by the individual as a defense in court. Rabb plans to introduce a bill that would: Expand the commonwealth’s definition of institutional sexual assault to include law enforcement officers and any person in the officer’s custody. Eliminate sexual consent as a defense. Make any sexual contact between an officer and a person in custody a third-degree felony. “Police officers are supposed to use their authoritative power to protect the public, not prey on the innocent,” Rabb said. “I find it ludicrous that this major oversight in our legal system has received such minor attention. Everyone has rights and no one deserves this type of mistreatment, no matter what your criminal history.” Similar legislation has passed in New York state. According to a Buffalo News database , more than 700 allegations of sexual misconduct by law enforcement officers across the country, between 2006 and 2015, showed a repeating pattern of officers using their position to force women in custody to perform sexual acts. In at least 26 cases, charges were dropped or the officer was acquitted. Read more

 

Policy Committee looks at Cephas bill to give second chances to students

(Apr 26, 2018)

PHILADELPHIA, April 25 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., today hosted a House Democratic Policy Committee public hearing on her H.B. 2210 that would expunge student disciplinary records for nonviolent offenses. Cephas requested the hearing to discuss the importance of ensuring nonviolent offenses would not have long-term negative impacts on students’ future outcomes. Cephas was joined by state legislators from across the state, including Policy Committee Chairman Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster. “I am excited to have the House Democratic Policy Committee here in Philadelphia to discuss my legislation. Giving students the opportunity to make amends and seek redemption for past actions is important. When it relates to nonviolent offenses, allowing them the chance to show their community they are sorry for their actions and ready to learn and grow from those mistakes is a big step in growing up and should not have a permanent negative impact on their future,” Cephas explained. Sturla added, “Mistakes are a part of life and a nonviolent infraction should not have a long-term negative impact on kids’ lives. Rep. Cephas’ bill is a great chance for those who have made mistakes to do what the school district asks to give them a clean slate and not let those mistakes forever impact the course of their future.” Testifiers included: Jeff Hullrung, school board president, Unionsville-Chadds Ford School District; James Plunkett, Read more

 

Dawkins talks gun violence and domestic abuse at Policy Committee hearing

(Apr 24, 2018)

PHILADELPHIA, April 24 – As part of the House Democratic Caucus’ Plan4PA, state Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., today hosted a public hearing on gun violence and domestic abuse issues at the Northeast Baptist Church in Philadelphia. Dawkins was joined by House Democratic Policy Committee chairman Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster, and legislators from across the state to discuss how to reduce gun violence, protect victims of abuse and Dawkins' H.B. 2097 to create a statewide notification system to alert victims of domestic violence, the general public, and law enforcement agencies when a known domestic violence abuser attempts to purchase or transfer a gun at a licensed firearms dealer. “We have a responsibility to help protect victims of abuse. I am glad my colleagues could be a part of this open discussion with those who provide services to victims of abuse to understand the drastic need for our intervention,” Dawkins said. Sturla added, “Rep. Dawkins’ legislation is a great step in protecting victims of abuse. Victims and law enforcement have every right to be notified when perpetrators are arming themselves so that they can be on alert.” Testifiers included: Julie Brancroft, director of public affairs, Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence; Patty McGlone, social worker and community education coordinator, Community Legal Services of Philadelphia; and Susan Pearlstein, supervising attorney of Family Law Unit, Read more

 

Kinsey, Lewis honor Tuskegee Airmen at state Capitol

(Apr 18, 2018)

HARRISBURG, April 18 – The state House of Representatives unanimously adopted a resolution co-sponsored by state Reps. Stephen Kinsey and Harry Lewis to pay tribute and honor the Tuskegee Airmen. Kinsey said the groundbreaking group of African-American military pilots honorably served in World War II. At the time of the Tuskegee Airmen’s service, the U.S. military was racially segregated and African-Americans were subjected to Jim Crow laws that imposed racial segregation at public facilities in southern states. “What started as an experiment simply due to the color of one’s skin, became history in the making,” Kinsey said. “They fought with distinction in the war abroad as well as the war at home. These brave men continued to serve their country and their communities despite the adversity that they faced.” On March 22, 1941, with the threat of involvement in the global war looming, the U.S. Army Air Corps 99th Pursuit Squadron was activated, becoming the first African-American fighter squadron. This group began at a segregated air base named Motion Field in Tuskegee, Ala. “We appreciate the opportunity to honor men and women who have dedicated themselves to the United States with military service – especially during war-time. Dr. Eugene Richardson and Nathan Thomas were a couple of the incredible 1,000 African-American military pilots trained in Tuskegee, AL who flew sorties in World War II,” Lewis Read more

 

Kinsey rallies to end bullying in Pa.

(Apr 10, 2018)

HARRISBURG, April 10 – Surrounded by parents, advocates and legislators in the state Capitol, state Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., sounded the call to bring an end to bullying in Pennsylvania schools and communities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that nearly 20 percent of students were bullied on school property in Pennsylvania, while more than 14 percent of students experienced cyberbullying. The CDC also learned that close to 16 percent of young people seriously considered attempting suicide, while nearly 3 percent of students who attempted suicide were either injured or overdosed and needed medical treatment. “Whether face-to-face or online, bullying can happen anywhere and any child can fall victim,” Kinsey said. “Whether we are a parent, guardian or teacher, we must become more aware of bullying and how to prevent such incidents from spiraling out of control and ending in tragedy.” One father said he hopes he never has to deal with his children becoming victims of bullying. "Even the best parents who practice the worst case scenario with their children cannot fully prepare for bullying,” said Jeff Templeton, executive director of S.P.E.A.K (Staying Positive Equals Amazing Kids). “Bullying is a public health problem that can no longer be ignored. It is an outbreak of erratic behavior with life changing consequences.” To help remedy this, Kinsey’s legislation ( H.B. 2009 ) would Read more

 

Dawkins applauds $3.5 million in grants to enhance apprenticeships

(Apr 04, 2018)

PHILADELPHIA, April 4 – State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., lauded Gov. Tom Wolf’s allocation of $3.5 million for 61 grants to support pre-apprentice and apprenticeship programs throughout Philadelphia and across the commonwealth. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry awarded the grants through Local Workforce Development boards across the state, including Philadelphia Works. The funding is designed to support businesses, industry associations, chambers of commerce, training providers, career and technical centers, and intermediaries interested in sponsoring registered apprenticeship programs. Dawkins said these grants will help open doors for people who are looking to obtain good-paying jobs. “Governor Wolf’s PAsmart initiative is helping Pennsylvanians develop the skills they need to stay competitive in today’s work force. Apprentice programs are the first step towards a life-long career with jobs that offer competitive pay, comprehensive health and vacation benefits, and comfortable retirement. We need more of these types of jobs now,” Dawkins said. Recently, Dawkins hosted a series of workshops in his district office designed to educate people on apprenticeship opportunities in Philadelphia. “I worked with our local labor and construction trade unions through my ‘Apprentice Prep with the Rep.’ workshop series to spread the word about these great prospects. These apprenticeship programs are open Read more

 

Kinsey, Fitzgerald to host public forum on Philadelphia’s education system

(Apr 04, 2018)

PHILADELPHIA, April 4 – State Reps. Stephen Kinsey and Isabella Fitzgerald, both D-Phila., announced they will host an event for people to talk and learn what’s being done on a state and local level to support public education. The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12 at Martin Luther King High School, 6100 Stenton Ave., 19138. Pennsylvania Department of Education Secretary Pedro Rivera and Otis Hackney from Mayor Jim Kenney’s Office of Education, along with a representative from the School District of Philadelphia, will be in attendance to offer insight and answer questions. “From a proposed increase in education funding to a new local school board, a quality education for all of our students remains a top priority on the state and local levels,” Kinsey said. “This forum will allow people to engage in meaningful dialogue that is critical to our children’s future.” Fitzgerald echoed Kinsey’s comments. “We are seeing great things for the School District of Philadelphia, thanks to Governor Wolf’s budget proposal to provide more funding for education,” Fitzgerald said. “We are also seeing a switch in leadership from the School Reform Commission to a school board that will be appointed by the mayor.” Read more
