Lawmakers From Across the Aisle Work to Make PA More Dog-Friendly

Jun. 26, 2024 / Embed

In the House, I've teamed up with Rep. Christina Sappey (D-Chester) to make changes to the Commonwealth's dog law that would save dog owners time and money and better support our small, local kennels along the state border. In the Senate, Sens. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-28) and Elder Vogel Jr. (R-47) have been working on the same issue for PA pets. I am hopeful either the House or Senate bill will soon pass, so we can make boarding dogs near the state line better for dog and kennel owners alike.

Shining a Light on Noncompete, Medical Malpractice Issues

Mar. 19, 2024 / Embed

In a joint hearing of the House Health and Professional Licensure Committees, I had the opportunity to speak about noncompete issues and how contracts affect patients, families, and entire communities. While hospitals undoubtedly have financial interests, patient care must be the highest priority. Anything less is not acceptable. We need to find a better way forward to address noncompete and medical malpractice issues

Klunk Initiative to Protect Victims of Sexual Assault, Harassment Passes the House

Mar. 18, 2024 / Embed

I offered an amendment to protect victims of sexual harassment and assault from their name being disclosed in a settlement agreement with a public entity during the Right to Know process. Under current state law, a victim’s name must be disclosed unless it is explicitly prohibited via a court order. Disclosing a victim’s name through the Right to Know process jeopardizes their safety and their privacy; this is absolutely unacceptable. I am encouraged by the unanimous support my initiative received from both sides of the aisle, and I hope the measure advances swiftly to the governor’s desk for signature into law.
