Our Solutions: Independent Investigations

The acquittal of the officer who shot teenager Antwon Rose in the back three times and killed him revives the perception of bias in our criminal justice system. Over 100 people from the Pittsburgh area rallied for greater police oversight at the Capitol Tuesday. Part of the solution for law enforcement is independent investigations and prosecutions of police involved killings. Independent investigations can help restore trust in law enforcement. My proposed legislation, Senate Bill 611, would take the prosecution of the deadly force incident out of the hands of the local district attorney and into the hands of the office of the Pennsylvania Attorney General. The Attorney General’s office would investigate and if necessary, prosecute the case to avoid the appearance of conflict that may arise from a local district attorney.

Reading Revolution

Summer is almost here. Schools close in June. Reading over the summer after schools close prevents the summer slide. Please get a summer reading list now at your school or local library. Our Reading Revolution summer reading camps for kids completing 1st through 4th grades will continue at McCloskey Elementary School and Dorothy Emanuel, Finley Playground, Simons, Summer Fit Camp, Belfield, and Lonnie Young Recreation Centers. Please contact my office for more information.

Poverty Tour of Pennsylvania

On 22 May, I begin a 5-stop tour to hear about the effects of poverty across Pennsylvania -- the first tour of its kind to happen in the State Senate in recent memory. City, small towns, and rural folks will share the real experiences of living in poverty and the struggle to break the cycle. We will stop in Erie, McKeesport, Philadelphia, Scranton, and Williamsport. Congressman Evans, PA Department of Human Services Secretary Miller, Senator Hughes and other leaders will join me. Please follow me for updates.

Fighting for Clean Energy

Now is the time to move to renewable energy and jobs in the clean energy industry. Pennsylvania nuclear companies are seeking approximately $3 billion from electric consumers to save the industry. Your electric bill would go up about $3 per month. Pennsylvania nuclear companies provide about 40 percent of our electricity. Without relief, Three Mile Island will close this year. Jobs could be lost. However, Pennsylvania nuclear facilities made $643.5 million last year alone.
