PA House Democrats Launch Effort to Defend Democracy

(Mar 29, 2021)

HARRISBURG, March 29 – Responding to the Capitol insurrection in January and the signing of new restrictions on voting rights last week in Georgia, House Democrats are taking action to protect American democracy. Today, a website was launched that summarizes policy proposals to defend democracy as well as links to more information and the ability for people to quickly email their elected officials, noting their support of the bills. The House Democratic Caucus has been working on these proposals since a House Democratic Policy Committee Hearing in January, when members were briefed by legal scholars, hate crimes experts and members of Congress on the language of false conspiracy and election fraud being used to undermine democracy. That same language has shifted from encouraging outright attack to what many perceive as insidiously undermining basic voting rights. “We cannot allow the outrage and disgust of the American people watching an armed invasion of our government to be subverted by a slick rebranding into attacks on our right to fair and free elections” Policy Committee Chairman Ryan Bizzarro said. Members of the House Democratic Caucus have introduced dozens of measures to expand voting rights, preserve election security, protect access to mail-in ballots and polling places, and to clarify and consolidate the often-outdated Election Code. Bizzarro said the site – www.pahouse.com/policy/defendingdemocracy -- will serve as a great Read more

Warren named chair of Subcommittee on Boroughs, part of the House Local Government Committee

(Feb 22, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Feb. 22 – State Rep. Perry Warren, D-Bucks, announced today that he was appointed minority chair of the House Local Government Committee’s Subcommittee on Boroughs for the 2021-22 legislative session. “I’m very pleased to be honored with this leadership opportunity, which will enable me to draw from over 11 years of working on borough-related issues at the local and state levels,” Warren said. “My experience and knowledge of the issues, coupled with my strong relationships on both sides of the aisle, will help me advance legislation that best serves Pennsylvania’s boroughs.” Boroughs make up a significant part of Pennsylvania’s local governments. Boroughs represent 37.5% of all municipal governments in the commonwealth. There is an average of 15 boroughs in each county, and nearly 20% of the state’s population resides in these communities. “The fiscal, operational and social well-being of our boroughs is vital to the overall welfare of the commonwealth,” Warren said. “As minority chair, I will ensure that the Subcommittee on Boroughs carefully reviews legislation to determine how it would impact Pennsylvania boroughs before moving it to the House floor for a vote.” Prior to becoming a state representative, Warren served seven years on the Newtown Borough Council, where he engaged with borough management in detail.

Warren bill targeting rising flood insurance premiums approved by committee

(Jan 26, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 26 – State Rep. Perry Warren, D-Bucks, announced that his bill, which would establish a Flood Insurance Premium Assistance Task Force to help reduce the cost of flood insurance premiums, was approved unanimously today by the House Insurance Committee. Warren’s H.B. 70 would address this financial issue which resulted from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s redrawing of its flood maps. When FEMA in recent years revised its flood maps to require many more properties in Pennsylvania to hold flood insurance, its goal was to mitigate the financial harm and help lessen the emotional devastation caused by floods. However, the remapping has had a negative financial impact on homeowners and communities in floodplains as many more Pennsylvanians now are struggling to pay rising flood insurance premiums, and many more communities along Pennsylvania's rivers and creeks are at risk of reduced property sales and values due to those premiums. “The increasing number of homes required to have flood insurance has had a deleterious effect on homeowners’ finances, local property values and our communities’ economies,” Warren said. “My legislation would address the problem of rising premiums through the establishment of a Flood Insurance Premium Assistance Task Force, which would help to reduce flood insurance costs by recommending potential programs that provide premium discounts and by supporting programs Read more
