Haywood Urges Congress to Draft Articles of Impeachment

Sen. Art Haywood recently introduced SR 395, a resolution asking the state Senate to call on Congress to draft and adopt articles of impeachment for President Donald J. Trump. “President Trump has consistently shown dereliction of duty and unfitness in the ability to hold the position of President of the United States of America,” Haywood said.  “I urge Congress to immediately draft and adopt articles of impeachment for Donald J. Trump.”

Starting this year, Pa. schools must test lead in drinking water, or explain why not

WHHY | BY SARA HOOVER

Many thought lead in drinking water was a problem of the past — until the water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan, a few years back.

And then a U.S. Government Accountability Office survey polled school districts across the country on testing for lead in drinking water in 2017. Fewer than half of those surveyed did testing; of those that did, more than a third found elevated levels.

York County schools might test for lead in drinking water with new law

By Lindsay C. VanAsdalan | York Dispatch

York County schools — along with all other schools statewide — will now be required to test for lead in their drinking water, or at least discuss the issue in public. Legislation that passed with the 2018-19 state budget amended the school code so that all facilities where children attend school — including charters, cyber schools and intermediate units — must be tested, or the school entity must inform the community about lead issues at a public meeting.

Senator urges testing lead in schools’ drinking water

The Philadelphia Tribune

Sen. Art Haywood, (Philadelphia/Montgomery) said on Wednesday that provisions in the recently enacted School Code will prompt school districts to test for lead in drinking water in Pennsylvania schools.

“A 2014 study by the state Department of Health found that 18 communities across Pennsylvania have children who have tested positive for increased levels of lead,” he said. “We must do what we can to reduce exposure to lead and ensure that school facilities do not have lead in drinking water.”
