McClinton welcomes advocates for probation reform to state Capitol

(Sep 24, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 24 – In her continued efforts for criminal justice reform in the commonwealth, state Rep. Joanna McClinton rallied with advocates for probation reform during a news conference at the state Capitol. “There are so many people who have served their time and who are now working to become upstanding citizens for their families and their communities. Yet, they are facing a long period of probation and one slip, such as missing a meeting with their probation officer, can land them back in jail. These people who are trying to change for good deserve better,” McClinton said. Participants of today’s event were Families Against Mandatory Minimums, Justice Action Network, Commonwealth Foundation, Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania, ACLU-Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Prison Society, REFORM Alliance, Amistad Law Project and American Conservative Union Foundation. McClinton also met with advocates one-to-one to discuss their thoughts on how to change the system in Pennsylvania. “I am a supporter of House Bill 1555 , a probation reform bill that is currently in committee. I also was a staunch advocate for the historic Clean Slate Act that became law last year,” McClinton said. “As a member of the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing, I voted against the new risk-assessment tool because I had serious concerns that it is not the best way to reduce recidivism. We need to Read more

 

Legislators fight to bring back General Assistance Fund

(Sep 24, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 24 – Joining advocates, former recipients of General Assistance and state senators, state Reps. Malcolm Kenyatta, Melissa Shusterman and Elizabeth Fiedler repeated the call for the General Assembly to restart the program that many vulnerable residents depended on in the commonwealth. “Ending General Assistance was one of the cruelest legislative decisions that has been made in this body since I became a member. There is no logical excuse or argument for denying support for the most vulnerable communities when they needed it most. It was like kicking them while they’re down,” Kenyatta, D-Phila., said. “That is why I’ve introduced House Bill 1709 to bring this vital resource back. I’m urging my colleagues across the aisle to understand the severity of the harm this has caused for Pennsylvania families and fix it now.” Kenyatta is the main sponsor of H.B. 1709, which would provide emergency relief to those Pennsylvanians who previously received support through the General Assistance Fund. The program provided $200 a month in cash assistance to those who were unable to work, those caring for loved ones who were sick or disabled, veterans, victims of domestic violence and those receiving treatment for substance abuse, among others. In June, the General Assembly voted to end the program, despite the pleas from many, including Kenyatta and Shusterman, Read more

 

Cruz to recognize Newborn Screening Awareness Month Tuesday

(Sep 23, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 20 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D-Phila., Democratic chairman of the House Human Services Committee, announced he will participate in a newborn screening awareness rally Tuesday at the Capitol. The rally will take place at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 in the East Wing Rotunda . Cruz said the event is part of an awareness campaign, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s Newborn Screening Technical Advisory Board and family advocates, to bring awareness to the importance of Pennsylvania’s Newborn Screening and Follow-up Program. Cruz will discuss his resolution, H.R. 475, recognizing September 2019 as "Newborn Screening Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania. “Early detection allows for early intervention to ensure all babies have a chance to live healthy lives,” he said. “It’s vital that we raise awareness of the importance of these screenings.” In addition to the resolution, Cruz' legislation to provide early detection of treatable disorders in newborns (H.B. 730 and H.B. 1220) was approved unanimously by the Human Services Committee last week.

Rep. Johnson-Harrell appointed by Gov. Wolf to gun violence council, introduces legislation to reduce gun violence in PA

(Sep 20, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 20 – State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, D-Phila., longtime anti-gun violence advocate, today announced her appointment to serve on Gov. Tom Wolf’s Special Council on Gun Violence. The announcement comes on what would have been the 27 th birthday of her son, Charles, who was shot to death in a case of mistaken identity in 2011. He was just 18 at the time. “After losing my son, I turned my grief into activism and began advocating for countless families in Philadelphia and across our state who’ve also been left reeling for solace and solutions after losing loved ones to gun violence,” Johnson-Harrell said. “I am grateful for Governor Wolf appointing me to this council so I can continue my mission to protect families from this ravaging epidemic.” The governor’s Special Council on Gun Violence was unveiled in August and included in a package of provisions in an executive order he signed to reduce gun violence following spates of shootings in Philadelphia. As a member of the council, Johnson-Harrell is authorized to attend council meetings, engage in discussions and vote on matters relevant to combatting gun violence across Pennsylvania. In addition to being appointed to the council and to further her mission to reducing statewide gun violence, Johnson-Harrell recently introduced legislation that would require a selection committee to accept proposals for a non-partisan research center for Read more

 

Cruz’ legislation to combat illegal tire dumping unanimously passes the full House

(Sep 20, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 20 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D-Phila., announced that legislation he authored to combat the increasing illegal dumping of waste tires in Philadelphia, unanimously passed the full House this week. “An increase in such acts leads to environmental, health and safety hazards, which adversely impacts the overall quality of life for both citizens and visitors of Philadelphia,” Cruz, who also serves as Democratic chairman of the Human Services Committee, said. “I am thankful for the bipartisan support on the passage of this bill to take the necessary steps to address illegal waste tire dumping in Philadelphia that could also be a model for all of Pennsylvania.” The bill, H.B. 342, imposes a penalty of no more than $500 per tire for violators caught illegally dumping waste tires. The bill would also require businesses dealing in waste tires and waste tire haulers to keep records of their inventory, provide waste tire enforcement to encourage recycling, expand waste tire disposal programs and enforce compliance with the Waste Tire Disposal Act. Cruz said current measures for enforcement, as outlined in Act 227 of 2004, have been rendered ineffective because the illegal dumping of other materials, not waste tires, are only addressed and the resulting penalty is a minor criminal offense. Cruz added, “We need stronger, more stringent enforcements to hold all violators accountable and to cause potential violators to think Read more

 

Bullock applauds $160,000 in state grants for the 195th Legislative District

(Sep 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 18 – State Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., announced a total of $168,965 in state grants are headed to the 195th Legislative District for greenways, trails, and recreation projects. The Commonwealth Financing Authority approved a $120,000 grant for the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation to modernize half of the 8-mile long Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Trail by reconstructing and resurfacing trail segments; constructing ADA access points; landscaping; and providing erosion repair and control. In total, the project cost is $3,170,750. “Currently, the trail has exposed tree roots that has destroyed portions of the path and the trail is in desperate need of modernization to make it more accessible for anyone who wants to enjoy it,” Bullock said. “I am pleased that city has been awarded this grant to keep this stretch of greenspace functional for residents to continue using it for various recreational activities.” Bullock also noted that the Spring Garden Community Development Corporation was approved for a $48,965 grant to design outdoor venues, gardens and parks where residents can engage in healthy outdoor activities at the Waring School play yard. Bullock added, “The school yard has a layer of asphalt that intensifies the heat, making it unbearable to enjoy outdoor activities during the summer months and this grant will allow the necessary changes to be made.” The SGCDC plans to also design a Read more

 

Cruz’ newborn screening bills unanimously pass House Committee

(Sep 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 18 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D- Phila, Democratic chairman of the House Human Services Committee, today announced that two pieces of legislation he authored, H.B. 730 and H.B. 1220, to provide early detection of treatable disorders in newborns, unanimously passed out of committee. House Bill 730 seeks to expand the list of mandatory screenings done at birth and to create a dedicated funding source for Pennsylvania’s Child Screening and Follow-up Program. Under current law, Cruz said, the state Department of Health operates the program between two lists: a short list of mandatory screenings and a longer list of optional ones. “While some hospitals and families choose to screen for the optional diseases, many Pennsylvania newborns are only screened for diseases on the short, mandatory list,” Cruz said. “This has created a system in which the health of Pennsylvania newborns is dependent on where they are born or whether their parents have knowledge of those diseases.” The expansion measure in H.B. 730 specifically calls for merging the two lists, mandating that every baby born in Pennsylvania is screened for every recommended disorder. “I attempted to address this issue with Act 148 of 2014 by expanding the list of mandatory screenings, however, the health department was unable to fully implement that law due in part to the lack of funding,” Cruz said. “In response, I have worked closely with Read more

 

Cephas secures $250,000 grant for Shepard Recreation Center Football Field

(Sep 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 18 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., announced today that a portion of a state grant is headed to Shepard Recreation Center, a community recreation center in the Haddington section of the 192 nd Legislative District. The center is among more than 400 neighborhood parks and recreation centers across Philadelphia awarded a $250,000 state grant for revitalization efforts. A portion of the quarter-million-dollar grant from the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program, funded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, will focus on the fields of Shepard Recreation Center and include fence installation surrounding the fields and replacement of goal posts, benches, bleachers and landscaping. The project will also include the construction of a concession stand with storage space for sports equipment. “Shepard Recreation Center has been a longstanding neighborhood park where many children in the neighborhood play,” Cephas said. “I am pleased to have worked with Coach Nate Reed of the local Panther’s football team to bring these resources to the center. We all know the role that a thriving recreation center contributes in the overall success of improving our communities and I couldn’t be happier to recognize Shepard one of those thriving centers. On behalf of the families in my district, I look forward to continuing to advocate for funding for resources to help prolong the existence of these many neighborhood centers Read more

 

Cobbs Creek playground receives $250,000 state grant

(Sep 17, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 17 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton today announced a $250,000 grant will help provide needed updates and create a safer environment at the Cobbs Creek playground. The Commonwealth Financing Authority approved the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program funding to assist with the renovations. “The Cobbs Creek playground provides a fun multigenerational space for visitors and residents to play, exercise and congregate, which is crucial in maintaining a robust community,” McClinton said. “This funding will help build on that strong foundation by creating a safer recreational environment that everyone can enjoy, day or evening, in the years to come.” The Cobbs Creek playground lacks the appropriate lighting that is necessary to provide a safe environment when the sun goes down. The city of Philadelphia will install six new lights and eight cameras to provide a safer experience for visitors to the park. The city also plans to install new play and exercise equipment, as well as develop a new nature play space in the park’s surrounding wooded area. The total cost of the project is $300,000. The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvania's economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Read more

 

Cruz congratulates child advocacy group for $70,000 state grant

(Sep 16, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 16 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D-Phila., today announced that the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance secured a $70,493 grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency to help Philadelphia victims of child sex abuse. “Congratulations to the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance for this grant and I am proud that the PCCD recognizes their important work,” Cruz said. “The Philadelphia Children’s Alliance is an invaluable asset for our entire city and provides a ray of hope in gray situations.” Cruz, who serves as Democratic chair of the House Human Services Committee, said the state grant will be used to fund the organization’s victims’ services component, in which an assigned counselor assesses families’ needs, provides crisis counseling and education about the investigation process, and offers referrals for medical or mental health treatment and support groups . “Children who are victims of abuse relive the traumatic episodes when retelling their experiences to investigators, making the criminal justice process incredibly difficult to solely endure,” Cruz said. “This grant will be used to ensure that these children and their families are provided the proper resources.” Read more

 

Cephas joins Philadelphia mayor and MERCK for Mothers foundation to announce $1 million grant to reduce citywide maternal mortality rates

(Sep 13, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 13 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila, vice chair of the House Democrats’ Women’s Health Caucus, today joined Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and others to applaud the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the Philadelphia Health Federation for securing a $ 1 million grant from MERCK for Mothers to support efforts to decrease maternal mortality in Philadelphia. The grant will support the Philadelphia Maternal Mortality Review Committee and create a local action team to address the daunting, increasing maternal mortality rates and improve maternal health outcomes. “When it comes to maternal care, Philadelphia has abysmal maternal mortality rates, at 27.4 deaths per 100,000 live births. The city’s rising rates are among poor maternal mortality across the commonwealth,” Cephas said. “This grant is a great start to improve outcomes for women and families in Philadelphia. It will also support efforts that can help to provide a clearer understanding of the causes and correlations of maternal deaths, so we can better track them and save lives.” In addition to her leadership role on the House Democrats’ Women’s Health Caucus, Cephas chairs the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus’ Subcommittee for Women and Girls of Color and has been a stalwart at addressing the rise in pregnancy-related deaths. She has coordinated meetings with stakeholders in Philadelphia and across the Read more

 

Dawkins: Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refinery bonuses are unacceptable

(Sep 10, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 10 – State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., chairman of the Philadelphia Delegation in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, has issued the following statement in response to news that Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refinery executives were given $4.6 million in bonuses before declaring bankruptcy: “The decisionmakers at PES were closing the refinery and preparing to lay off most of the 1,100 employees, while simultaneously paying out millions in bonuses to just eight individuals. It is absolutely disgusting that these executives would lay off their employees without severance pay and health benefits, while stuffing their own pockets. “At a time when we are fighting so hard to eradicate poverty in Philadelphia, it is disappointing to see a company act so heartless towards its employees. These families will be losing vital income and be at risk of facing astronomical costs should they need medical care without health insurance. “The economic impact of this closure will be felt in Philadelphia for some time, but the added insult of paying out bonuses to key officials while the fire was still burning really highlights how unfairly the employees have been treated in this process. “It shows me that there were never plans to fight for the hardworking people who kept that facility running day in and out.” Read more

 

McClinton encourages students to help solve Pa. roadway litter problem

(Sep 10, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 10 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton is inviting all ninth through 12th grade students in the 191st Legislative District to participate in a statewide initiative to help efficiently and effectively control litter along roadways in the commonwealth. The Innovations Challenge asks students to look at co-effective technologies and innovative solutions – aside from laws, programs, and education campaigns – that can be developed in the next five to 10 years to help the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation combat this problem. “Litter scattered along the side of our roadways is not only an eyesore, it’s an environmental hazard. It’s unfortunate that people feel to use the outdoors as their trash can and not think about the consequences,” McClinton said. “Protecting the environment should be a priority for everyone, and today’s youth and future generations will be the most impacted. “The Innovations Challenge is a wonderful opportunity for our youth to use their creativity and brain power to make a difference. I encourage all students in my district – from Yeadon and Darby to Philadelphia, and all points in between – to participate in this worthy challenge,” McClinton said. Regional Innovations Challenge winners will be selected and invited to compete in Harrisburg for the state championship. This year, the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Traffic Safety Services Read more

Legislators vow to fight Pa. Commission on Sentencing's risk-assessment tool

(Sep 06, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 6 – Following their votes today to reject the new risk-assessment tool by the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing, state Rep. Joanna McClinton and Sen. Sharif Street said they vow to push for their legislation that would repeal the commission’s mandate to create a such a tool. “I voted to reject the risk-assessment tool because I have serious concerns that it is not the best way to reduce recidivism and keep people safe in my community and across the Commonwealth. I strongly believe that the mandate requiring the commission to create a new risk-assessment tool needs to be repealed and I will continue to work closely with Senator Street and my colleagues to pass legislation that would abolish that mandate,” McClinton said. Under this risk-assessment tool passed Thursday, when a person scores high- or low-risk based on the risk-assessment instrument, they would be flagged for further assessment of their risk of recidivism and need for treatment or support. The plan permits county probation departments to put these people through whatever assessment they use. Street said, “For almost a decade, the sentencing commission has worked – under a legislative mandate – to create a risk-assessment tool with the goal of reducing costs and decreasing the prison population. Senator Greenleaf, author of the original legislation, has denounced this version of the risk-assessment tool as having the adverse effect of its Read more

 

Fiedler, Policy Committee examine school building toxic conditions and emergency funding

(Sep 04, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 4 – State Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, D-Phila., today hosted a House Democratic Policy Committee public hearing on toxic conditions in school buildings and emergency funding at the Horace Furness High School. Fiedler requested the hearing to discuss what more the state can do to improve conditions in Philadelphia schools for students and staff. The hearing ended with a tour of the high school to see the conditions firsthand. Legislators from across the state joined Fiedler, including Policy Committee Chairman Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster. “Nearly half of the school buildings in Philadelphia are decades old with antiquated systems, including heating, cooling, lighting and electrical. These basic comforts are in dire need of replacement. In addition, these buildings have mold and other hazards that are creating serious health problems for our children,” Fiedler said. “We need to come up with policies that will ensure our schools receive adequate funding, so our children receive a quality education in hazard-free and safe environments.” Sturla added, “The children in Philadelphia and throughout the commonwealth should not have to learn in unhealthy and outdated conditions. The House Democratic Caucus seeks to provide all students with a high-quality education, so they are prepared to either go on to an institution of higher education or to join the workforce. I thank Representative Fiedler for her leadership in spotlighting Read more

 

Cephas touts Wolf Administration for winning $2.25 million grant to reduce maternal mortality rates

(Sep 04, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 4 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., vice chair of the House Democrats’ Women’s Health Caucus, today applauded the Wolf administration for securing a $2.25 million grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to support efforts in decreasing maternal deaths in Pennsylvania. Cephas wrote letters of support for the CDC grant that will fund the Pennsylvania Maternal Mortality Review Committee, a multidisciplinary committee tasked with addressing the pressing issue of growing maternal mortality rates across the commonwealth. “Nearly a thousand women die from pregnancy-related complications each year across the country and many of these deaths were preventable. It’s also a problem here in our commonwealth,” Cephas said. “I am proud that Pennsylvania was awarded this grant to protect women, mothers, infants and their families.” Cephas has been a staunch advocate for addressing the rise in pregnancy-related deaths. She has coordinated meetings with stakeholders and the five delivery hospitals in the Philadelphia area to discuss potential solutions, hosted a House Democratic Policy Committee public hearing, and sat on two panels to better assess the issue. In these discussions, Cephas said she also wanted to bring awareness to racial disparities and mental health issues as contributors to the increase in maternal deaths. “Black women are four times more likely to die from Read more

 

Street renamed after the late former Rep. Frank L. Oliver

(Aug 30, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 30 – State Rep. Donna Bullock was joined today by Sen. Sharif Street, former Sen. Shirley Kitchen and local ward leaders to rename a portion of 29th Street, between Master Street and Thompson Street, as the Frank L. Oliver Memorial Highway. “Frank was a pioneer and staple of this community. During his time as state representative, he played an active role as an advocate for minority hiring and inclusion, affordable housing and criminal justice reform,” Bullock said. “His inspirational fight to protect our most vulnerable populations ended in much-needed laws being passed.” The designation came to light after a bill was enacted ( S.B. 1156 ) that included Bullock’s amendment for the renaming. “With the designation of 29th Street as the Frank L. Oliver Memorial Highway, we honor Frank’s contributions and remind everyone of his hard work and dedication to the people of Philadelphia,” Bullock said. Frank L. Oliver represented the 195th Legislative District from 1973 to 2010 and retired as the most senior African-American elected official in the commonwealth and the longest-serving member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly with 37 years of service. During his tenure in the state legislature, he introduced legislation that enhanced First Amendment freedoms and benefits for women and minority civil service employees. Read more

 

Rabb introduces state-based slavery reparations bill on 400th anniversary of enslaved Africans arriving to North America

(Aug 30, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Aug. 30 – State Rep. Christopher Rabb, D-Phila., introduced legislation that would establish a reparations plan to combat systemic racism impacting Pennsylvanians of African descent on the 400 th anniversary of enslaved Africans arriving to Virginia in 1619. “For many other disenfranchised groups, the United States government has provided reparations and our commonwealth must follow suit,” Rabb said. “I am proud to introduce this bill for our commonwealth to atone for its role in this heinous institution that has resulted in generations of systemic racism bolstered by public policy and culture practice statewide.” Rabb said that slavery in Pennsylvania has been documented as early as 1639, with Philadelphia becoming the region’s largest port for importing enslaved Africans. “Many of the colonists who settled Pennsylvania tolerated slavery, including William Penn who owned 12 enslaved people. These people were responsible for building his colonial estate, Pennsbury Manor. Additionally, despite the Gradual Emancipation Act, passed in 1780, no enslaved person was ever emancipated, with many living and dying in bondage,” Rabb said. “Pennsylvania has always been a willing enabler of the subjugation of an entire race of people and this subjugation has been maintained statewide through institutional racism.” The bill outlines a state-based reparations plan that would have four parts: A formal Read more
