Davis: Increase to first-responder loan program passes House

(Oct 23, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 23 – State Rep. Tina Davis today applauded her House colleagues for unanimously passing H.B. 1816 , her plan to increase the amount of money that emergency response units can borrow for critical equipment through the Volunteer Loan Assistance program. The VLAP provides low-interest loans to volunteer fire companies and emergency medical services so that they may purchase up-to-date equipment and vehicles and maintain and upgrade their facilities. The 10% increase in loan limits set forth by the bill address the rate of inflation. The maximum limit on loans was last raised in 2013. “Current loan limits have restrained vital fire companies and emergency medical services,” said Davis, D-Bucks. “As a result, these organizations are spending too much time fundraising because VLAP’s loan rates haven’t increased with the rate of inflation. “This bill would provide these vital organizations with the ability to buy or upgrade essential equipment and maintain facilities across the state.” In addition, the bill would annually increase all loan limits by the inflation rate from the previous year to ensure that fire companies and emergency medical services have lasting access to financial assistance. “Having to go to the legislature every couple of years to raise loan rates is inefficient, as we know the rate of inflation is going to increase,” Davis said. “This bill Read more

Davis applauds Wolf executive order to reduce gun violence

(Aug 16, 2019)

LEVITTOWN, Aug. 16 – State Rep. Tina Davis, D-Bucks, applauded Gov. Tom Wolf’s executive order to address the public health crisis of gun violence in Pennsylvania, saying it was necessary to pass reforms to increase community safety and reduce the threat of gun injuries and deaths. “We need to take drastic action now to preserve people’s lives and the governor’s executive order is a necessary first step,” Davis said. The executive order makes widespread changes to executive branch agencies and programs to reduce the number of suicides, homicides and mass shootings in Pennsylvania. The order names Charles Ramsey, chair of the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), to lead a new Office of Gun Violence Prevention within the agency, and the office will contain a Special Council on Gun Violence tasked with meeting within 60 days to begin developing a plan to reduce gun violence in Pennsylvania. The executive order also creates the Division of Violence Prevention within the Department of Health. Together, the two offices will address gun violence from gun safety and public health perspectives. They will establish new oversight and data sharing, and work to reduce community gun violence, combat mass shootings, and stop domestic violence related and self-inflicted shootings. Davis specifically mentioned that the legislature needs to take a leadership role by enacting “red flag” laws to get guns out of the hands of Read more

Davis congratulates Bristol Township School District on receiving second school safety grant in weeks

(May 20, 2019)

HARRISBURG, May 20 – State Rep. Tina Davis, D- Bucks, today congratulated Bristol Township School District for earning a $24,788 school safety equipment grant funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office for Safe Schools’ Targeted Grant. This grant comes weeks after the school district received a $144,000 school safety grant from the School Safety and Security Committee of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. “Schools are supposed to be a safe haven for learning, but in light of recent national events in which schools have been targeted, the reality is that school safety, particularly the safety of students, has been compromised,” Davis said. “The Bristol Township School worked diligently to secure this grant, and the previous one, in an effort to ensure that all students feel physically and emotionally safe in their classrooms.” The Safe Schools Targeted Grant for Equipment program assists schools by providing security planning, purchasing of security-related technology which may include metal detectors, protective lighting, surveillance equipment, special emergency communications equipment, electronic locksets, deadbolts, and theft control devices, and training in the use of security-related technology.
