Working for My Bosses Every Day


As the 2019-20 session of the House of Representatives gets underway, I was honored to accept a certificate in recognition of my perfect attendance during my first term. Presenting the award is House Majority Whip Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin).

Representing the people of the 49th Legislative District any time a vote is cast on the House floor is not only my job, but a privilege I will never take for granted. My hard-working bosses in Washington and Fayette counties go to work every day to earn their paychecks and they expect their state representative to do the same.

Increasing Access to Life-Saving Medication


With the beginning of the spring semester at colleges and universities across the state, students with known or unknown food allergies could now have an extra layer of protection in the event of an allergic reaction.

Act 93 of 2018 authorizes colleges and universities to have non-patient specific epinephrine auto-injectors on hand in case of an emergency. The law also applies to law enforcement agencies, summer camps, restaurants, amusement parks, sports facilities and other facilities to carry non-patient specific epinephrine auto-injectors.

With food allergies becoming more prevalent in our society, increasing access to life-saving medication is more important than ever.

Experts estimate 1 in 13 children in the United States have food allergies and allergic reactions result in 90,000 emergency room visits and approximately 1,500 deaths annually.
 
 
Radon – Is Your Home Safe?


An estimated 40 percent of Pennsylvania homes have higher levels of radon than national safety standards, due to the state’s geology. However, residents can perform a simple test to detect this gas, which is considered the second leading cause of lung cancer.

Radon is an odorless, colorless radioactive gas that occurs naturally from the breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks and enters homes through cracks in the foundation or other openings. High levels of radon tend to be found in basements, but the gas can be found anywhere in the home.

Winter is a good time to test for radon, because doors and windows are generally closed, providing more accurate results. Simple radon test kits are inexpensive and available at home improvement and hardware stores.

January is national Radon Action Month. For more information on radon in the home, click here
