Yesterday the Pennsylvania State Senate held an historic remote session online to vote on legislation. By unanimous vote, the Senate approved:
- Extending the primary election date to 2 June,
- Relieving school districts of the 180 days of school requirement,
- Easing access to unemployment compensation and,
- Setting aside $50 million to support hospitals including equipment and supply purchases.
This is our first, but not last legislative response to the impact of COVID-19. This online session and future online sessions are required to reduce the spread of COVID-19. For further details on the legislative changes we passed, please contact my office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Stay at Home Activities for the Weekend
Staying at home and practicing social distancing does not have to be as difficult when you have fun activities to do. Here are three ideas for weekend fun my staff will be doing.
- Listening to DJ D-Nice, Questlove, or Matthew Law’s music streams on Spotify or Instagram
- Trying a new recipe
- Video conferencing with loved ones on Zoom, FaceTime, and WhatsApp
We will share more fun stay at home activities with you via e-news and social media. We encourage you to do the same or share your stay at home activities with us through appropriate photos and short videos either on social media or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be safe, be healthy, and STAY HOME.
