New DUI Law to Take Effect Aug. 25 … A new law set to go into effect Aug. 25 will change the way first-time DUI offenders are punished in Pennsylvania. The new law will require most first-time offenders with a blood-alcohol level higher than 0.10 percent to have an ignition interlock device installed on their vehicle. Under the new law, most first-time offenders would be eligible to drive with the ignition interlock immediately. Otherwise, they would have to have their driver’s license suspended for a year before installing the interlock device for 12 months. Those who are eligible can petition PennDOT for a new Ignition Interlock Limited License, allowing them to install the device for one year and continue to drive. The law will also apply to drivers who refuse to submit to chemical testing. They will be eligible for early interlock after six months. According to statistics compiled by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, nearly 2 million drunk-driving attempts have been stopped with ignition interlock devices, including more than 78,000 instances in Pennsylvania between 2003 and 2015.

New Immunization Requirements for PA Schools This Fall … The Pennsylvania Department of Health has revised Pennsylvania’s school immunization requirements for the 2017-18 school year. The new rules require parents to get their children fully immunized prior to the fifth day of school or the students will be excluded from school. Previously, parents had eight months to meet school immunization requirements. If a student is in the middle of an immunization series and it is too soon for the next dose, the parents must provide the school nurse with a written plan, signed by their health care provider, within the first five days of school. For more information, contact your health care provider, visit health.pa.gov or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH.

PennDOT Offers Winter Maintenance Jobs
… Individuals seeking seasonal employment are encouraged to apply for a variety of winter maintenance positions now open through PennDOT. The program runs from September through April, and includes positions for transportation equipment operators, diesel mechanics, radio dispatchers, stock clerks, welders and tradesman helpers. Individuals in these positions supplement the permanent workforce and have the potential to lead to permanent full-time employment. Additional details about the positions, along with the job application, are available at employment.pa.gov. Click on “Open Jobs” and then go to “PennDOT Winter Maintenance Program.” The deadline to apply is Friday, Aug. 11.

Attention Medicare Recipients … From April 1, 2018, through Dec. 31, 2019, Medicare will mail out new Medicare cards that no longer have Social Security numbers on them. The new card identification number will be a random mix of numbers and letters as a way to protect a cardholder’s identity.

Some things to remember:
                                                           
• A cardholder’s benefits will stay the same, with no changes to coverage. The only difference is the cardholder’s ID number.
• A cardholder doesn’t have to take any action and does not need to confirm personal information. The card will automatically come in the mail and is ready to use right away.
• The new card does not cost anything, and fees do not apply.

Medicare representatives don’t call you or come to your house. Hang up on anyone who calls you and says there is a fee for the card or that they need to confirm your identity. For more information, call the PA-Senior Medicare Patrol at 1-800-356-3606. Help is free and confidential.

Rep. Delozier in the Community

• On Sunday, Lemoyne dedicated its recently completed its 443-foot mural off the Interstate 83 south exit ramp. Daniel Finch, with the assistance of many, designed and painted this art project through public and private funding. The mural pays tribute to the borough’s history as a transportation hub. It looks great!

 

• National Night Out was celebrated in a number of area communities. I stopped by the events in Lemoyne and Lower Allen. It was great to see so many members of the community, and thank you to our police departments for their service.

• The West Shore Bureau of Fire held a ground breaking for its new station, which is adjacent to the borough building in Lemoyne. This new 10,300-square-foot building will allow the department to effectively and efficiently handle fire, emergency, rescue and other life-threatening situations once completed. It will replace the existing station in Lemoyne.
• As a member of the Taxpayers’ Caucus, we gathered input at a Fairview Township hearing earlier this week on the proposed state budget tax increases approved by the Senate. During the hearing, we heard from citizens and business owners about how these tax increases will significantly impact them. I am opposed to the Senate tax plan.
