Pennsylvanians are concerned about affordability of living in this great state, about access to good paying, stable jobs, and about making sure their children have access to a great education. In just over a year in the Majority, the leadership team that I am proud to be a part of has taken action to fairly and fully fund education and I am hosting hearings to keep it a budget priority, we are working to make Pennsylvania attractive to workers by offering them safety protections and raising the minimum wage, and we are implementing programs to invest in infrastructure and home affordability to keep our state vital.
As Policy Chair, my first series of hearings was on the insurrection and the creation of a website dedicated to Defending Democracy. My colleagues and I have introduced legislation to ensure election transparency and stability and providing counties with the tools they need to implement fair elections that are accessible to all eligible voters.
The Basic Education Funding Commission completed an exhaustive study on fair funding for our schools and now I am working with the leadership team to promote and implement their findings.
I would expand the number and types of providers that can perform the procedure and eliminate unnecessary and burdensome restrictions to expand access and protect reproductive healthcare. Abortion rights should also be enshrined in our state constitution and safe from Republican attacks.
