Opioid, alcohol safe-harbor bills could save lives

(Oct 12, 2018)

WEST CHESTER, Oct. 12 – Two bills introduced by state Rep. Carolyn Comitta could help people overdosing from opioids or who are in danger after drinking while underage. The two bills would extend the immunity protections to victims in either case, including cases of self-reporting and Good Samaritan intervention. Comitta was joined during a news conference today in West Chester by state Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, an early co-sponsor of the bills. “The opioid epidemic has proven to be the biggest public health crisis in a generation,” said Comitta, D-Chester. “Too many among us have witnessed firsthand its ravaging effects on our family, friends, neighbors and children. “Victims have been overlooked far too long and deserve compassion rather than punishment for making their best attempt to survive.” Daley is the state representative for Mary Ciammetti, whose son died from alcohol poisoning after a party. She said these protective bills could have saved Christian Ciammetti’s life. “When we look at the legislation introduced in Harrisburg, we have to ask ourselves: will it make a positive impact on Pennsylvania and will it help foster a healthier, better life for our constituents,” Daley said. “In this case, the answer is most undoubtedly yes. These bills will save lives. No one should have to choose between acting to save their life and admitting to a mistake that millions of people can make. Read more

Get pre-verified now for your REAL ID

(Sep 05, 2018)

In an effort to keep you informed on the state’s progress in implementing REAL ID, I wanted to pass along an important update from PennDOT. The agency says it is now pre-verifying residents for REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses or ID cards . As you may know, beginning in October 2020, you will need a federally accepted ID (whether it’s a REAL ID driver’s license or ID card, a U.S. Passport, military ID, etc.) for identification to board a commercial flight or visit a secure federal building. Although getting a REAL ID is not mandatory , you’ll want to get one if you want to use your PA driver’s license or state-issued photo ID as identification for these purposes. The cards will become available in March 2019 , but PennDOT is encouraging people to become pre-verified beforehand. If you received your first driver’s license after September 2003 , the agency may already have the necessary documents on file. In that case, you can apply online for REAL ID pre-verification . However, if you received your license before that time, it is likely PennDOT does not have the necessary information on file. That means you will need to bring specific documents to a driver’s license center so they can be verified in person. Find out which items you should bring with you here . After REAL IDs become available next March, you’ll have three options for obtaining one. If you are pre-verified, you can order your REAL ID Read more

LAFAYETTE HILL, May 29 –State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, today hosted a House Democratic Policy Committee public hearing on ensuring healthy births, healthy moms and healthy babies at the William Jeanes Memorial Library and the Nicholas and Athena Karabots Center for Learning. Daley was joined by Policy Committee Chairman Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster, and state legislators from across the commonwealth. The committee discussed the importance of establishing the state-wide Maternal Mortality Review Board, as signed into law on May 9. Daley said that the board’s work should improve maternal health outcomes across the state while reducing significant disparities in maternal health outcomes for black women, who suffer the greatest risk. Maternal and infant health outcomes are critical measures used to measure and compare the health of states and nations. “Today’s hearing was a great discussion on women’s health and how we can ensure a healthy start for children and families,” Daley said. “Health care access and parental leave are essential building blocks for women and their babies – especially early on – and I’m glad my colleagues took part in today’s meeting.
