Ulman to host panel on the benzodiazepine crisis Oct. 16

(Oct 10, 2019)

DOYLESTOWN, Oct. 10 – State Rep. Wendy Ullman, D-Bucks, and Pro-ACT Community Organizer Elnora “Noni” West, will be hosting a panel discussion, “Benzodiazepines: Our Other Prescription Drug Epidemic” from 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16 at Doylestown Hospital, Conference Room J. “It’s becoming clear that adult Americans have an addiction to prescription medications, not just opiates,” Ullman said. “Between 1996 and 2013, the number of adults with benzodiazepine prescriptions grew by two-thirds, from 8.1 million to 13.5 million people. Benzos are highly addictive and should be prescribed with caution.” Ullman will be joined by a panel of subject matter experts, including Amanda Johns, director of Pharmacology, Aldie; Maryann Venezia, psychiatry, Lenape Valley Foundation; Christopher White, clinical supervisor, BC Drug & Alcohol Commission; Joseph Yi, detox specialist and board-certified addiction psychiatrist; and Paul Zazow, psychiatry. “I’m looking forward to an illuminating discussion about ways to end the benzodiazepine crisis in Pennsylvania,” Ullman said.

Southeastern PA lawmakers: Pennsylvania must join RGGI states now

(Oct 03, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 3 – A plan to finally add Pennsylvania to the Northeast’s carbon trading market is being met with praise from state lawmakers in southeastern Pennsylvania. Gov. Tom Wolf this morning announced that his administration will put its weight behind adding the commonwealth to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the nation’s first competitive carbon-credit market to incentivize clean emissions across the northeast states’ energy-industry sector. Companies that innovate and produce clean energy will keep credits in the market, which are ante’d by all participants and lost by those that fail to meet modern benchmarks on pollution. “I applaud Governor Wolf for his leadership,” said state Rep. Carolyn Comitta, D-Chester. “We must take strong action to stop climate change and shape a healthy future for our children. Joining RGGI positions Pennsylvania to protect our children’s future while strengthening our economy.” Comitta is one of 31 early sponsors of House legislation that backstops the governor’s order. “It’s time that Pennsylvania steps up to become a leader in fighting climate change and grow our economy through this partnership with neighboring states,” said state Rep. Margo Davidson, D-Delaware, chair of the House Southeast Democratic Delegation. “RGGI is a win for the environment, our neighbors and families and our economy.” Read more

Ullman: Public engagement saves Tohickon Creek from DEP downgrade

(Aug 23, 2019)

DOYLESTOWN, Aug. 23 – In response to requests from legislators, civic and environmental groups and the public at large, the state departments of Environmental Protection and Conservation and Natural Resources have agreed to perform further study on how any changes to Lake Nockamixon Dam could affect Tochickon Creek before changing the waterway’s designation, state Rep. Wendy Ullman, D-Bucks, announced today. “Thanks to our collective efforts, any DEP reassement of this treasured waterway must await new findings and up-to-date data,” Ullman said. According to Ullman, DEP had earlier proposed downgrading Tohickon Creek as a trout-stock-fishery designation, which would have a serious negative impact on tourism and property values. Working with the Tinicum Conservancy, Ullman had encouraged local residents to petition DEP to designate the Tohickon Creek as Exceptional Value in order to protect all existing uses of the stream and safeguard the quality of its water. Over 900 public comments were received. In the interim, Ullman has had conversations with DCNR Secretary Cindy Dunn and DEP Director of Legislative Affairs Gregory Kauffman to push for further evaluation of Lake Nockamixon Dam and Tohickon Creek. The letter Ullman received from DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell agreeing to this request for further study says: “The stream evaluation of Tohickon Creek is currently at the draft report stage. Further evaluation of the Lake Read more

DOYLESTOWN, Aug. 22 – State Rep. Wendy Ullman, D-Bucks, hosted a telephone town hall on Wednesday evening to discuss the upcoming session in Harrisburg and issues such as transportation, gun safety, the environment, and property taxes. “I appreciated everyone who took the time join the telephone town hall to share what is most important to them,” Ullman said. “I’ll be taking this information with me back to Harrisburg.” The 50-minute town hall was divided into two parts: polling questions on which listeners could vote and live questions from some attendees to which the representative responded. Respondents said that the biggest issue facing the 143 rd Legislative District was roads and infrastructure (57%), followed by access to health care (21%), schools (15%) and jobs (6%). An overwhelming percentage of respondents (88%) voted that gas drilling companies which use hydro-fracking technology should be required to pay their fair share as they do in other states. In order to stop school shootings, 51% percent of respondents said that military-style assault weapons should be banned and 24% said that background checks should be required for every firearm purchase. Sixty-eight percent of respondents voted that Pennsylvania should follow the lead of New Jersey, New York, Ohio and other surrounding states to raise the minimum wage. “Residents in the 143 rd are very informed and passionately engaged with local and state Read more
