Boyle seeks to reform special election procedures in Pa.

(Jan 08, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 8 – Following the announcement of the date for special elections to fill three House vacancies, state Rep. Kevin Boyle announced he will be introducing legislation to regulate when these elections could be held in the future to save Pennsylvania taxpayers money. “Special elections have been scheduled for March 17 when the April 28 primary is only a little more than a month away. These special elections will cost Pennsylvania taxpayers more than $1 million in added elections costs,” said Boyle, D-Phila./Montgomery. On Tuesday, Speaker Mike Turzai announced the March date for the special elections to fill vacancies in the 8th, 18th, and 58th legislative districts. The speaker’s decision will inconvenience voters and election workers in Mercer, Butler, Bucks and Westmoreland counties. “Not only are these special elections a financial burden, but our counties are dealing with changes to new voting laws and voting machines. Our already overburdened county election workers should be concentrating on ensuring voters are educated on the new laws and new voting machines so they can make secure, informed decisions at the polls,” Boyle said. He added that he has introduced legislation that would require special elections to fill vacant seats in the House or the Senate to be held in conjunction with the next regularly scheduled general or primary election day. “As the Democratic chair of Read more

 

Cephas to host MLK Day of Justice on Jan. 18

(Jan 08, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 8 – Inspired by a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., state Rep. Morgan Cephas announced she will host a day of justice to help give people who have dealt with the state criminal justice system a second justice. The event will take place from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18 at Shepard Recreation Center, 5700 Haverford Ave., 19131. “Doctor King once said, ‘If America is to remain a first-class nation, it cannot have second-class citizens.’ I whole heartedly believe this, yet we have so many people in the commonwealth who are treated unfairly following their time behind bars,” Cephas said. “This event will provide an opportunity for people to get the information and resources they need to help clear their record and get on proper footing to lead productive lives for their families and their community.” Cephas said a news conference will be held to launch the soft opening of the Haddington Participatory Defense Hub. Those in attendance will be able to learn about the state pardon process and record expungement to determine if they may be eligible to get their record erased. Refreshments will be served. To RSVP, call Cephas' office at 215-879-6625. Read more

 

Rabb, Howard introduce legislation that would ban carrying a firearm while intoxicated

(Jan 03, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 3 – State Reps. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., and Kristine C. Howard, D-Chester, today introduced legislation that would make Pennsylvania the latest state to prohibit licensed gunowners from carrying a concealed firearm while intoxicated. “Alcohol intoxication clouds judgement and dulls a person’s ability to discern the consequences of their actions,” Rabb said. “Similar to the hazards an intoxicated driver poses to themselves and the public, a firearm in the hands of even the most diligent handler who is intoxicated can also be dangerous and potentially fatal.” Under the bill, individuals carrying a firearm with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or greater would be penalized with a summary offense, a $100 fine and suspension of their concealed carry permit for up to three years. The bill would also impose a third-degree misdemeanor, a $500 fine, and a license suspension for a minimum of three years, with the possibility of permanent permit revocation. Rabb said alcohol has been the constant variable in many violent crimes cases and pointed to a 2015 study that found a positive association between alcohol misuse, risk behaviors involving firearms and firearm violence, both self-inflicted and against another person. According to the study, deaths among men caused by alcohol-related violence firearm violence were equal to those from motor-vehicle crashes also involving alcohol. The legislation poises Read more

 

Kinsey blasts Mummers for use of blackface for second year in a row

(Jan 03, 2020)

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 3 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus, called the use of blackface by members of the Froggy Carr Wench Brigade during the New Year’s Day Philadelphia Mummers Parade racist. “It was just last year, almost exactly to the date, that the Mummers stirred controversy with an incident of similar nature. PLBC representatives met with them and attempted to use that as a teachable moment on how hurtful and racist these character portrayals are, but this year, we’re through,” said Kinsey, D-Phila. “We’re through with trying to reason with an entity that is essentially a modern minstrel show laced with hate speech, xenophobia and the denigration of Blackness under the guise of entertainment. We can no longer tolerate having our humanity and skin color repeatedly mocked and donned as costumes.” Kinsey applauded Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney for censuring and subsequently disqualifying the Froggy Carr Wench Brigade but pressed for more substantive consequences for performers who engage in racially insensitive behavior. “I am pleased that Mayor Kenney immediately stepped up to condemn the use of blackface; however, as chairman of the PLBC, I’m calling on the mayor to impose more harsh penalties that are swift and severe for any performer or troupe who indulges in this disgusting spectacle. Funneling taxpayer dollars in the form of city employees Read more

 

Philadelphia House Delegation welcomes appointment of new police commissioner

(Dec 30, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 30 – Members of the House Democratic Philadelphia Delegation, led by state Rep. Jason Dawkins, today welcomed the appointment of Danielle Outlaw as Philadelphia’s new police commissioner. Outlaw comes to the city from her post as chief of police in Portland, Ore., and having served 20 years in the Oakland Police Department in her native California. The appointment was announced today by Mayor Jim Kenney. “The appointment of Danielle Outlaw is welcome news for our great city,” Dawkins said on behalf of the delegation. “Her credentials as an experienced officer and chief, along with her impeccable character, make her well suited to lead and reform a department that has been plagued with issues of racial and gender discrimination and sexual harassment. “It is long past time that a woman, notably a woman of color, be given the opportunity to lead the law enforcement actions and efforts of Philadelphia and work toward the reforms that are most needed,” he said. Dawkins said he and the delegation also look forward to teaming up with Outlaw to solve issues important to the city and state, including gun violence and nuisance establishments. “We are eager to partner with Commissioner Outlaw to address the challenging issue of gun violence in our communities and reduce overall crime in the city,” Dawkins said. “We continue to stand with our brave police officers and now our new Read more

Roebuck joins rally to demand funding to fix toxic schools in Pa.

(Dec 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 18 – State Rep. Jim Roebuck, D-Phila., stood with dozens of teachers, students and advocates at the state Capitol to call on the General Assembly to pass legislation that would help fix unhealthy and unsafe conditions in schools across the commonwealth. “Many of our schools, particularly in Philadelphia, have deplorable conditions that are creating hazardous learning environments for both students and teachers alike. Because of these conditions, many students are developing health issues, which could cause life-long problems,” Roebuck said. “It is unconscionable that these schools continue to fall in disarray to the point that they have to be shut down only to provide a temporary fix.” Roebuck, the Democratic chairman of the House Education Committee, is a co-sponsor of H.B. 1636, which would establish a $125 million grant program within the Department of Education, known as the Public School Building Emergency Repair and Renovation Grant Program. It would be funded by the state General Fund. “We owe it to the children of the commonwealth. As elected officials, we are obligated to provide safe and healthy learning environments, not put a Band-Aid on a problem that will only get worse if drastic measures are not taken,” Roebuck said. Roebuck is a member of Fund our Facilities , a coalition of elected leaders, labor organizations and community groups in Read more

 

Cephas introduces legislation to lower maternal mortality rates

(Dec 18, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 18 – In her continued effort to bring awareness to the disproportionate number of deaths of women of color during and after childbirth in the commonwealth, state Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., announced she has introduced a package of bills aimed at addressing maternal mortality rates. “Pennsylvania has seen an increasing, disturbing trend in pregnancy-related deaths, with 11.4 deaths per 100,000 live births from 2012 to 2016. For women of color during that time period, that rate was more than double, at 27.2 per 100,000 live births. This is a clear indication that regardless of income and education levels, women of color are at an even greater risk than white women to die from pregnancy-related complications,” Cephas said. The bills introduced by Cephas are: H.B. 2107 – Would add severe maternal morbidity to the list of reportable events within the Pennsylvania Department of Health. H.B. 2108 – Would extend Medicaid coverage for pregnancy related and postpartum medical assistance. H.B. 2109 – Would extend Medicaid coverage to doula services and create a Doula Advisory Board. H.B. 2110 – Would require training to address implicit bias and culture competency that impact care and quality of care for patients of color, including women of color during pregnancy and childbirth. “While the death of any mother is a tragedy, Read more

 

Kenyatta, Lewis’ bill to establish cybersecurity oversight board unanimously passes House committee

(Dec 17, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 17 –State Reps. Malcolm Kenyatta, D-Phila., and Andrew Lewis, R- Dauphin, today announced that legislation they authored to install a first-of-its kind cybersecurity oversight board in Pennsylvania was unanimously approved by the House Commerce Committee. Kenyatta, who is currently serving in his first term, said the bill, H.B. 2009 , would establish a Cybersecurity Coordination Board to protect data by conducting cybersecurity audits and improving security and privacy standards. The board would also collaborate with businesses and academic institutions to assist in providing effective cybersecurity safety awareness and education. “As elected officials, it is our duty to ensure the safety and well-being of all Pennsylvanians and it’s imperative that cybersecurity be included among the institutions we should be safeguarding because too many Pennsylvanians have been drastically impacted by cyber-attacks,” Kenyatta said. “I am proud of the bipartisan support our legislation has received and thankful that protecting Pennsylvanians from cyber threats is something that we can all stand behind.” “Cyber criminals are relentless in their passion for disrupting the flow of information whenever they see an opening, especially when it comes to prominent parties such as government entities,” Lewis said. “We must be equally as passionate in our efforts to fend off these attempts to create chaos Read more

 

Hohenstein: We must provide better protections against assault for recreation leaders

(Dec 17, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 17 – State Rep. Joseph C. Hohenstein, D-Phila., today announced that an amendment he introduced to provide protections against assault for recreation leaders, lifeguards and librarians was passed by the full House. Hohenstein’s measure was added to H.B. 1879, introduced by Rep. Keith Gillespie, R-York, a bill that would expand existing assault statutes to include additional protections for healthcare employees. The push for the inclusion of recreation employees in the bill, Hohenstein said, was motivated by a string of assaults targeting Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation personnel, including the July assault of a lifeguard and her father at Vogt Recreation Center, located in Hohenstein’s legislative district, and his own experience previously serving as a lifeguard. "Immediately after the assault on those lifeguards at the pool at Vogt Recreation Center, I met with them and I told them would have their backs,” said Hohenstein, who represents the 177 th Legislative District. “Today, I was able to fulfill that promise, at least in part, by expanding the aggravated assault law to include them and the recreation leaders who are serving our neighborhoods every day. They put themselves on the line and they deserve to know that we value them and their work. They keep our children safe, and we need to keep them safe." House Bill 1879, including Hohenstein’s amendment, now moves to the Senate Read more

 

Cephas to introduce legislation to protect older Pennsylvanians

(Dec 16, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 16 – State Rep. Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., announced she is introducing legislation designed to protect older Pennsylvanians from abuse while living in assisted living and long-term care facilities. “No one deserves to be a victim of abuse, and that’s certain for our commonwealth’s aging population,” Cephas said. “Our seniors have worked their entire lives to provide for and raise their families while making significant contributions to their community. They should not be denied the appropriate level of care and compassion that they deserve.” The two bills, known as the Assisted Living and Long-Term Care Resident Bill of Rights, would explicitly convey the needs and rights of residents, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, age or ethnicity, and ensure these needs are met. Some of these needs include mail privacy, access to health care, free from restraints, right to privacy, access to the local ombudsman, and the right to live free from neglect, intimidation and physical or verbal abuse. “While these things seem to be obvious, abuse against older Pennsylvanians is a far too common reality. More than 18,000 cases of abuse were reported between 2016 and 2017. For people of color and marginalized communities, the magnitudes of abuse are higher,” Cephas said. “My legislation would help address one of the most alarming health concerns Read more

 

Kenyatta defends North Philadelphia community that Temple University student’s video called ‘ghetto’

(Dec 12, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 12 – State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, D-Phila., today forcefully denounced a video of a Temple University student who expressed disparaging comments against the surrounding North Philly community, according to recent news reports. “I am a proud product of this North Philly community and I remain proud to be Temple Made, and because I come from both of those worlds, I know firsthand that those comments in that video couldn’t be farther from the truth and are deeply disrespectful,” Kenyatta said, who represents the 181 st legislative district where Temple University’s main campus is located. “This vibrant community is comprised of some of our city’s most hardworking people who persevere and thrive despite the many obstacles they face. “This community and its residents are my family and my neighbors; they nurtured me and instilled in me invaluable life skills that I have carried with me throughout my life. I am honored to continue to call this community my home and it has been an utmost privilege to pay forward everything this community has provided me by representing them in Harrisburg and ensuring their voices are uplifted as we fight together to dismantle the systemic issues that stymies this community from reaching its full potential. “With that said, I know this student’s views do not align with most Temple students and I applaud the university for swiftly condemning this Read more

Kenyatta condemns latest proposed cuts to SNAP benefits, calls on state lawmakers to support resolution

(Dec 05, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 5 – State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, D-Phila., said he condemns the Trump administration’s work requirements for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program that stands to eliminate benefits for 688,000 adults. “The Trump administration is conjuring the old, classist tactic that shames people who have fallen on hard times,” Kenyatta said. “This notion that people relying on SNAP are casually siphoning these benefits is absurd. “The nearly 700,000 people who will be impacted most are already employed, but work minimum wage jobs where securing steady shiftscan be difficult. For those who are unemployed, many reside in areas with high rates of unemployment due to the dearth of jobs. We also can’t ignore the economic impact these rollbacks will cause to our agriculture industry because of the removal of cash flow provided by SNAP benefits.” Kenyatta called on his lawmaker colleagues to join him supporting a House resolution he co-introduced with state Rep. Danilo Burgos, D-Phila., that would condemn similar proposals by the Trump administration to cut SNAP benefits back in August. “The Trump administration is once again punching down and should instead be focusing on ensuring employers are providing jobs that pay fair wages, not relegating the working class into the working poor,” he said. “We as lawmakers must do all we can to protect our most vulnerable Pennsylvania Read more

 

Kinsey announces $5K state grant for Philadelphia’s only surviving Underground Railroad stop

(Dec 05, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 5 – State Rep. Stephen Kinsey, D-Phila., today announced a $5,000 state grant has been awarded to the Johnson House Historic Site that will go towards the continued preservation of historical records. “The Johnson House Historic Site is the oldest home in Germantown and also the only Underground Railroad stop still standing in Philadelphia,” said Kinsey, chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus. “This home has served as a think-tank for agents of social justice and those seeking freedom. This grant will enable JHHS to showcase and preserve the contributions of these revolutionaries for generations to come.” The Johnson House Historic Site will use the grant to organize and preserve its archives and special collections- comprised of historic materials that have been collected over the course of decades- and make them available for research and educational purposes. The grant is funded by the Historical and Archival Records Care Grant Awards, administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. They are intended to improve the preservation and accessibility of historically significant records maintained by local governments, historical societies and academic institutions. Projects include initiatives such as digitization; arranging, describing and rehousing collections into appropriate formats, containers, and environments; and disaster planning. The grants are administered on a Read more
