Safely Dispose of Unused Prescriptions This Saturday
Residents have an opportunity to remove opioids and other unused medicines from homes this Saturday, April 27, as part of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

More than 18 tons of prescription drugs were disposed of across Pennsylvania in the Prescription Drug Take Back Day held last October. The initiative helps prevent unused medications ending up in the wrong hands.

Locations to safely dispose of unused drugs are listed here. Two Giant Food Stores in our area are listed as drop-off locations.

You can also find permanent disposal boxes in your community by clicking here.

Share the Road
As the weather continues to warm up, more and more Pennsylvanians will ride their bicycles on the roads. Both motorists and bicyclists can work together to ensure everyone shares the road and gets home safely.

Motorists and bicyclists have the right to use the roads in Pennsylvania and should work to maintain a 4-foot barrier between each other when passing.
Motorists are allowed to overtake a bicycle in a no-passing zone, provided they leave a 4-foot clearance.

You can learn more about Pennsylvania’s bicycle laws here.

April is Autism Awareness Month
April is Autism Awareness Month in Pennsylvania. An estimated 30,000 Pennsylvanians live with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

To help families, providers and those with autism access services to help meet their needs, Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Autism Services maintains a comprehensive online resource at PAautism.org.

The website helps connect people with autism or those who support people with autism with resources and a community to help them improve their lives.

The General Assembly further supports people with autism by dedicating funding to autism intervention and services in the annual state budgets. In the current 2018-19 budget, funding totals more than $31 million, an increase of $3.6 million over the previous fiscal year’s spending.

Hellbender Named State Amphibian
The Eastern hellbender is now officially our state amphibian!
Sen. Gene Yaw (R-Bradford/Lycoming/Sullivan/Susquehanna/Union) and I both introduced bills to obtain this designation for the Eastern hellbender, a large salamander that also is known as the snot otter, mud devil, Allegheny alligator, devil dog and lasagna lizard.

What’s neat about the Eastern hellbender is that finding it in a stream or river is an indication the water quality is good there. The Eastern hellbender requires good oxygen, temperature and flow.

Students from Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School, who are student leaders within the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, approached me in February about naming the Eastern hellbender Pennsylvania’s amphibian. I was happy to help these impressive youths and promote clean water.

Here is a video of me speaking at the bill-signing ceremony.

Rep. Delozier in the Community
• Last Thursday, I spoke with Pennsylvania Advocacy and Resources for Autism and Intellectual Disability members about the budget process and advocacy. This group does great work supporting children and adults with autism or intellectual disabilities through advocacy, training and education.

• I stopped by ABC27 last Thursday for an open house in the new studio and newsroom. The station has been broadcasting in its new, state-of-the-art facilities since January, but paused to ceremonially open them and cut a ribbon. I met Ginger Zee while there.

• Mechanicsburg Area Meals on Wheels marked its 50th anniversary this week. Congratulations! The organization’s kitchen prepares hot meals for more than 150 people, delivering tens of thousands of meals a year.
