Events This Week
I’m hosting two events this week!
Come out to Doylestown Library this evening for my PA ABLE Information Forum.
“A PA ABLE account gives individuals with qualified disabilities (Eligible Individuals), and their families and friends, a tax-free way to save for disability-related expenses, while maintaining government benefits. Federal and state law authorized the creation of PA ABLE accounts.”

On Thursday, join me for a Telephone Town Hall on the topic of the Coronavirus.
Update from Harrisburg
Protecting Workers During Public Health Emergencies
I’ve proposed legislation that aims to protect workers during public health crises. Currently, there is no law in Pennsylvania that protects an employee from retaliation or termination if placed under quarantine or isolation during a declared public health emergency. No one should have to fear losing their job when they are forced to take the necessary precautions to prevent the spreading of disease, for the sake of their own wellbeing and the health of the public.

Update from Senate District 10
Liquid Fuel Distributions to Municipalities
I’m happy to announce that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is committing $487.5 million in liquid fuel payments for the maintenance of roads and bridges in municipalities across the Commonwealth. Twenty-seven municipalities in Senate District 10 will be receiving a portion of PennDOT’s annual distribution, totaling $8,471,160.64, which will assist with expenses related to municipality-owned highways and bridges, such as snow removal or repaving.

Local School Safety and Security Grants
Six schools in Senate District 10 have been awarded School Safety and Security Fund grants from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, totaling more than $665,000. Schools should be a place of learning and growth, and making sure that our students and faculty feel safe, and are in fact safe, in their classrooms is a crucial component of fostering that productive environment.
