Delozier Reacts to 2024-25 State Budget Passage

Jul. 11, 2024 / Embed

The 2024-25 budget approved on July 11 relies on one-time federal dollars to fund new programs that create recurring expenses. While Pennsylvania has the dollars to pay for those programs now, taxpayers will be on the hook to continue funding them in the years to come.

Delozier on Education Funding

Pennsylvania students are the future of our Commonwealth. While I voted "no" on the overall 2024-25 state budget, I do support the increase in funding for pre-K and special education, basic education K-12, and higher education that invests in our students.

Delozier on Standing for PA Law Enforcement

Jun. 25, 2024 / Embed

Public policy needs to change as our environments change, and I believe the environment for law enforcement has significantly. I am collaborating with fellow lawmakers on legislation to address staffing shortages in District Attorney's offices, so they can receive additional help when needed from our Attorney General's office without needing to hire more employees. This benefits District Attorneys and taxpayers by providing support while conserving public dollars.

Delozier Advocates for Clarification to Veterans Benefits

Jun. 24, 2024 / Embed

On June 24, House Bill 1963 unanimously passed the House. This legislation contains language I put forward to clarify a discrepancy when interpreting veterans’ benefits. Cumberland County is home to about 17,000 veterans and numerous funeral homes; this bill amends the Vital Statistics Law to ensure the death certificate fee is waived for the spouse of a veteran, regardless of whether the veteran predeceased or survived their spouse. I believe when a soldier serves our country their family also serves and deserves the respect to be entitled to the benefit of having the fees waived for official government documentation.

Delozier on Clean Slate 3.0, Second Chances

Jun. 11, 2024 / Embed

Clean Slate 3.0 has officially taken effect. During a press conference with the governor, we recognized past successes and looked to the future of helping even more Pennsylvanians access housing, employment and educational opportunities. This law gives Pennsylvanians who've earned them a second chance.

Clean Slate 3.0 Takes Effect in PA

Jun. 11, 2024 / Embed

Watch the press conference and ceremonial bill signing for House Bill 689, the bipartisan Clean Slate expansion bill offered by Rep. Jordan Harris (D-Philadelphia) and me. Pennsylvanians with criminal records will now have the opportunity to have certain low-level, nonviolent felony crimes sealed from their record after 10 years without recidivism. I was glad to help this bill to grant second chances cross the finish line.

Delozier Supports Historic Tax Cut

Jun. 04, 2024 / Embed

I stood with fellow House Republican leaders at a press conference calling on House Democrats to bring the bipartisan, Senate-passed tax cut plan up for a vote. The historic legislation would reduce the Personal Income Tax (PIT) and eliminate the Gross Receipts Tax on electricity. This means money in every paycheck in Pennsylvania and reduced electricity bills for every consumer. We want to take our budget surplus and give it back to taxpayers, not create new and recurring expenses during a time of economic turbulence.

12th Annual Tribute to Veterans Breakfast

May. 30, 2024 / Embed

On May 30, I hosted my 12th annual Tribute to Veterans Breakfast for residents of the 88th District. This year’s theme was “Veterans’ Families.” It was an honor to pay tribute to our vets and military families for their service to our country. When a soldier, sailor, Marine or airman serves, their family does as well.

I’m wishing a very happy Nurses Appreciation Week to our Commonwealth's dedicated nurses. These individuals play an important role in our health care system, and in our lives. They're there when we need them most. Thank you, nurses!
