“The PA Fertility Act has the potential to have varied and long-lasting positive effects across the state, ensuring fertility coverage statewide, growing PA’s health care sector, attracting young professionals from outside the state, and keeping young professionals here at home,” Innamorato said, “as opposed to what we are seeing today, where young people are leaving PA in order to acquire fertility treatment coverage already confirmed in all our other northeast neighboring states.” Read more
PITTSBURGH, April 25 – 51 Bridge Street LLC in Etna Borough secured $750,000 in funding for the second phase of its project to redevelop a former steel pipe manufacturing building into a hub to house technology and robotics manufacturers, announced state Rep. Sara Innamorato, D-Allegheny. “This is an exciting project that will help breathe new life into a piece of Etna’s industrial past,” Innamorato said. “This grant funding is another crucial component toward the completion of a project that will attract new businesses in a growing industry and provides an investment in the community’s future.” The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program funding was awarded for the next phase of the 51 Bridge Street redevelopment project, which includes the acquisition of the site, selective demolition, building structure such as steel framing, fireproofing, concrete, roofing and other interior building components. The exterior façade will be restored and rehabbed during this phase. “The AM Group is grateful for the continued support from the commonwealth, Governor Wolf, Senator Lindsey Williams, Representative Sara Innamorato, Allegheny County, and the Borough of Etna,” said Tom Sabol of the AM Group, the developer behind the 51 Bridge Street project. “We are excited to continue the work to transform 51 Bridge Street into a space for innovation in the heart of Etna and contribute to the vibrant Read more

Philadelphia, Jan. 14 – State Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, D-Phila., announced today that, with colleagues Rep. Sara Innamorato, D-Allegheny, and Rep. Rick Krajewski, D-Phila., she is introducing legislation to allocate $500 million in federal funds to keep people across the state in their homes. The legislation would invest $500 million in American Rescue Plan dollars to the Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Thus far, 179,915 applications have been received across the commonwealth, but the need has far exceeded the existing ERAP funding. Fiedler said that by distributing $500 million in ARP dollars to counties whose funds have been exhausted, these Pennsylvanians can get the help they need. This is a companion bill to legislation being introduced by Sen. Vincent Hughes and Sen. Nikil Saval, both D-Phil., and Sen. Art Haywood, D-Philadelphia/Montgomery . In many counties, including Philadelphia, Delaware and Berks, more applications have been received than funding is available. The lawmakers said this funding shortfall has a very human cost: leaving people who rent unable to pay their bills and vulnerable to becoming homeless during the pandemic. Fiedler said, “Funding the Emergency Rental Assistance Program is a good investment in public health and in the people of Pennsylvania. Investing this money in rent assistance will help ensure people who pay rent, and their children, can stay in their homes.” Read more

HARRISBURG, Oct. 8 — State Reps. Danielle Friel Otten and Sara Innamorato and several of their House and Senate colleagues rekindled the discussion on period poverty and menstrual equity in the Pennsylvania legislature by reintroducing legislation that would provide basic menstrual hygiene products to students. Otten’s H.B. 1954 would require public schools throughout the commonwealth to make period products freely available to students in grades six through 12. Similarly, Innamorato’s legislation aims to provide complimentary pads and tampons in all of Pennsylvania’s public college and university bathrooms. “Pads and tampons are not luxury items; they are necessities that every individual who menstruates needs and deserves access to,” Otten said. “Students in middle school or high school who don’t have access to period products may resort to making their own products out of old clothes or paper towels because they have no other option, and could miss school when these homemade alternatives are unavailable or inadequate. We can and must do better for the children of Pennsylvania and provide them with basic supplies while they’re at school. This is an equity issue. It is not acceptable for someone to miss out on their education because they lack access to these essential products.” “Periods happen, and not having access to basic, hygienic period products shouldn't be a barrier in navigating the Read more

HARRISBURG, Sept. 29 – State Rep. Danilo Burgos, D-Phila., has introduced legislation (H.B. 1931) that would include the teaching of African American and Latino history in PA school curriculum. Joining Burgos on the bill are state Reps. Joe Hohenstein, D-Phila., Regina Young, D-Phila./Delaware, and Sara Innamorato, D-Allegheny. Burgos said the purpose of requiring African American and Latino history in school curriculums is to make sure that Pennsylvania students receive the full and true history of these cultures and their experiences. Often, he said, the only time they are covered is during Black History Month or Latino Heritage Month. “African American and Latino history are American history. The story of these underrepresented groups must go beyond Black History Month and Latino Heritage Month,” Burgos said. He continued, “Knowing and understanding the history of our nation is of vital importance to our democracy and identity as Americans. Yet, our educational system does not currently paint an accurate or full portrayal of our rich history where all of our students can see themselves.” Read more
