Philadelphia Delegation lauds Wolf’s 2020-21 state budget proposal

Fitzgerald introduces legislation to protect gun owners, promote public safety

(Nov 25, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 25 – State Rep. Isabella Fitzgerald, D-Phila., announced she has introduced a series of bills designated to protect law-abiding gun owners, children and residents in the commonwealth. “It’s unfortunate that anyone could potentially become a victim to gun violence here in Pennsylvania. Whether accidental or intentional, one life lost is one too many. We must put commonsense legislation in place to prevent senseless killings from occurring in the future,” Fitzgerald said. “My three bills would preserve the rights of Pennsylvanians who are carrying guns legally, safeguard our children from being killed accidentally and enforce a ‘cooling-off’ period for a person who may have experienced an unpleasant incident in their life and who looks to potentially commit an act of violence.” The bills introduced by Fitzgerald are: H.B. 2076 – Would require driver’s licenses and photo identification cards to indicate a person possesses a concealed carry permit. H.B. 2077 – Would require all firearms be safely stored whenever they are not in use. H.B. 2078 – Would establish a 72-hour waiting period for purchases of semi-automatic assault rifles. Fitzgerald is a member of the PA SAFE Caucus , which is made up of 70 members of the PA House and Senate who believe in reducing all types of violence in society through Read more

 

Driscoll co-introduces bipartisan auto-IRA program bill

(Nov 22, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 22 – State Reps. Michael Driscoll, D-Phila., and Michael Peifer, R-Pike/Wayne, introduced bipartisan legislation that would make Pennsylvania the latest state to enact an auto-IRA program. The legislation would establish the Keystone Saves Program, a voluntary program that aims to expand access to private retirement savings plans to more than 2 million Pennsylvanians who currently do not have a workplace retirement plan. “We must do more to ensure retiring Pennsylvanians aren’t plagued with financial burdens as a result of rising costs and unforeseen expenses during what is supposed to be their golden years,” Driscoll said. “I am proud that this legislation transcends partisanship and allows lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to focus our attention on doing what’s right for residents of the commonwealth.” Driscoll said the program would allow enrolled employees to have a portion of their income automatically deposited into an account overseen by the state Treasury. There, the state treasurer will manage the accounts like the previously enacted 529 College and Career Savings Act, while also consulting with private financial planners to ensure the maximum return and minimal risk for enrollees. Additionally, Driscoll added, employees will be the sole proprietor of all funds they deposit into these accounts, meaning the money cannot be used or become property of the state. As it stands, economic Read more

 

McClinton applauds passage of legislation outlawing sexual extortion

(Nov 21, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 21 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, today applauded the passage of bipartisan legislation she co-sponsored, which would outlaw sexual extortion in Pennsylvania and empower law enforcement and victim services organizations to help victims of this serious sex crime who previously fell between the cracks. “Finally, victims of this horrific crime will have an avenue to seek justice and perpetrators of sexual extortion – which the Department of Justice has said is the most significantly growing threat to children – can be held accountable,” McClinton said. “I am elated to see this legislation receive bipartisan support in both the House and Senate, and I look forward to seeing Governor Wolf sign it into law.” McClinton introduced H.B. 1402 with Rep. Tedd C. Nesbit, R-Mercer/Butler. The House passed it unanimously in June. The Senate unanimously passed the bill on Wednesday after making small improvements to the legislation. Today, the House unanimously passed the bill on concurrence, and it’s headed to Wolf’s desk for his signature. McClinton said previously that by specifically adding sexual extortion as a crime, we can protect individuals from people in power who demand sexual acts, images or videos from victims, usually for something of value to the victim. “Now, would-be perpetrators will not be able to lord intimate photos or other Read more

(Nov 21, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 20 – Today, state Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., hosted a news conference alongside state Sen. Larry Farnese to recognize Educating Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Week in Pennsylvania, as well as Red Shirt Day, which raises awareness about homelessness across the state. “Homelessness has a profound impact on children’s success in school and later in life,” Bullock said. “It’s incredibly important to raise awareness of this issue so that teachers, administrators and other educators can offer support when it’s needed most.” “The number of youths experiencing homelessness increased by 22% this year. While we don’t know what factors are driving this, we know that these students need to be supported, that they have a right to an education and as much stability as we can possibly provide,” Farnese added. “That’s why we are here today and why Red Shirt Day is so important -- to assure these kids that they are not alone.” During the 2017-18 school year, more than 36,000 students were identified as experiencing homelessness or having inadequate housing. Bullock and Farnese were joined by advocates against homelessness, including Nikki Johnson-Huston; Thomas Jackson, a policy and research analyst with People Emergency Center; Ameera Sullivan, guidance counselor at Strawberry Mansion High School in Philadelphia; and Sonia Pitzi, Region 3 coordinator Read more

 

Kenyatta addresses closing of Pratt Early Childhood Center due to toxic conditions

(Nov 21, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21 – Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, D-Phila, issued this statement following the closing of Pratt Early Childhood Center due to asbestos and the School District of Philadelphia’s calls for Harrisburg to help fund its recently unveiled environmental safety plan for toxic hazard remediation in all its schools: “The calls from the parents, teachers, students and the School District of Philadelphia are being taken very seriously,” Kenyatta said. “No parent should have to fear sending their child to school and no child should ever be at risk for exposure to toxic materials while learning in an environment that is presumably safe. The health and safety our students and staff are my top priority and I’ve been working tirelessly to secure more funding to remove toxic hazards in schools in our community and across our city. “Just hours prior to learning about the abrupt closure of Pratt elementary school, I met with Governor Tom Wolf to discuss allocating more funds for our schools, in addition to the $4.3 million the governor provided in July.” To date, Kenyatta said, the governor has invested a total of $11.9 million for lead paint alleviation in schools across the city over two years, with $7.6 million provided last year. Since June 2018, through a combination of state funding and $11 million provided by the Philadelphia School District, 32 elementary schools have undergone lead paint stabilization by the Read more

(Nov 21, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 21 – State Rep. Mary Isaacson, D-Phila., today announced that a $1 million state grant is headed to the Philadelphia Delaware River Waterfront Corporation to convert longtime local tourist attraction Graffiti Pier into a public park. Isaacson said the grant, funded by a Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ grant program, will be used to acquire the 5-acre stretch of Pier 18, colloquially known as Graffiti Pier because of the graffiti art that covers its concrete columns, to re-open it for public use. “Graffiti Park has served as a canvas for local artists to showcase their creativity,” Isaacson said. “It’s essentially a contemporary relic of Philly’s street art culture and I’m proud that longtime efforts for the preservation of this modern landmark have finally come to fruition.” This latest grant awarded to the Delaware Waterfront Corp. comes after Isaacson helped the corporation secure a $150,000 state grant from the Multimodal Transportation Fund Program to construct the Delaware River Trail and a $400,000 DCNR grant that will be put towards expanding 0.35 miles of the trail.

Reps. Burgos, Toohil Achieve Big Win for Insuring the Spanish-Speaking Community

(Nov 20, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 20 – The Pennsylvania Insurance Department recently issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) with the goal to be able to offer, for the first time, insurance licensing educational materials and examinations in Spanish and Chinese, according to Reps. Danilo Burgos, D-Phila., and Tarah Toohil, R-Luzerne. “The option to offer these exams in Spanish is most welcomed and long overdue. My district has a very diverse population with many Spanish-speaking constituents. The Spanish educational materials and exams will benefit these citizens to help them navigate the system to easily access the information when they need it,” said Burgos. “I have many Spanish-speaking constituents who are finding it difficult to take the insurance class and pass the final exam to obtain a state license,” said Toohil. “By offering the educational materials and tests in Spanish, we are bolstering Pennsylvania’s insurance industry with new agents and allowing the minority populations greater access to the financial safety net that insurance can provide.” The two legislators met recently with Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman to discuss the department’s efforts to seek a vendor to offer the educational materials and exams in the two languages. “As a department, we are committed to advancing consumer protections through our licensing programs and remain dedicated to educate Read more

Many of our young people are battling life changing diseases and require so much more than basic medical care. It’s important that everyone looks into being a donor if their health permits them, so they can be a hero for those who need and await lifesaving procedures.” Farnese said, “My father suffered from cancer and was the recipient of a bone marrow transplant, so I know how important these lifesaving registrations are.

(Nov 14, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 14 – State Rep. Rosita C. Youngblood is working to bring awareness and provide relief for the one in four people nationwide who struggles to afford menstrual hygiene products. Toward this effort, she introduced legislation to recognize “National Period Day,” to end the stigma that surrounds menstruation, and on Wednesday, she hosted a tour of the Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank, which works in partnership with the National Diaper Bank Network and the Alliance for Period Supplies, to show other legislators the work that is being done, as well as the existing need for period products in their communities. “Periods are a fact of life,” Youngblood said. “But there’s a stigma when it comes to talking about them. That silence has led to many people who are unable to afford period products living in shame because they need help with something that society is unwilling to talk about. I introduced legislation to change the conversation. I hope that we can talk about this issue and we can find solutions to help the people in need get the health care supplies they need.” Youngblood is also hosting a period supply drive at her office, 310 W.
