Apr. 17, 2024 / Embed

I welcome folks to come to the land of the free and home of the brave, and there are legal processes to do so. I wholeheartedly support this. I cannot support people taking advantage of the cracks in our system and putting others at risk. By addressing issues with sanctuary cities, squatters rights and ghost planes, we can help ensure public safety.

Delozier Speaks on Crime Victims’ Rights, Marsy’s Law

Apr. 15, 2024 / Embed

In 2019, we worked very hard to put Marsy's Law in front of the voters. This would have amended our state Constitution to enshrine crime victims’ rights. Over 70% of voters supported Marsy's Law, and it was a blow to those victims when our state Supreme Court legislated from the bench and denied that opportunity. In the years since, the Legislature has been successful in implementing pieces of Marsy’s Law, which has strengthened the victims’ voices in the Commonwealth.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is observed every year in April. This is a time to stand in support of the Commonwealth’s victims and those who provide professional services for those in need. I was grateful for the opportunity to speak about all the hard work that went into Marsy’s Law, an important amendment that would have enshrined crime victims’ rights in our state Constitution.

Chick2Chick Podcast: “Is it Time to Legalize Pot in PA?”

Apr. 15, 2024 / Embed

I joined Flora Posteraro and Carrie Perry on the Chick2Chick podcast to discuss Gov. Josh Shapiro’s proposal to legalize recreational marijuana use. He included the proposal in his budget pitch for fiscal year 2024-25 and wants it legalized by July 1. Too many questions remain unanswered about how his proposal would be implemented. This uncertainty coupled with the budget deadline makes the proposal a better headline than policy decision for the future of Pennsylvania. Learn more by tuning into the conversation.

Job and Government Services Spotlight: Harrisburg Regional Chamber and CREDC

Apr. 09, 2024 / Embed

At my recent Job and Government Services Fair, I had a chat with Kevin DiGuiseppe from the Harrisburg Regional Chamber and CREDC about workforce development initiatives like Clean Slate. In 2018, Pennsylvania became the first-ever Clean Slate state when the bill I offered became law. This enhanced employment and housing opportunities for individuals who’ve earned a second chance. Last year, Clean Slate was expanded to include certain low-level, nonviolent felony drug crimes. So, individuals who’ve gone 10 years or more without reoffending can also access those important personal and economic opportunities. It was great to hear from the chamber about how this legislation will impact our local economy.
