Daniel Finds a Poem

Working to promote early literacy development, the McKean County Family Center invited me to read this year’s “One Book, Every Young Child” selection, called “Daniel Finds a Poem.” As always, reading to the children was a lot of fun, and I appreciate the opportunity to help grow their interest in books!
Putting Public Safety, First Responders First
In another step aimed at boosting public safety and helping our fire and emergency medical services, the House has approved legislation establishing a bipartisan commission to make recommendations to help ensure the future of these life-saving services.

According to Senate Resolution 6, the commission would be made up of state lawmakers, as well as representatives of local government and emergency service providers throughout Pennsylvania. The group would be charged with producing a final report of all legislative recommendations by June 30, 2018.

While the commission is at work, lawmakers are already discussing several initiatives aimed at supporting our fire and EMS providers by boosting funding and training opportunities and encouraging volunteerism.

This work is vital to ensuring we have fire and ambulance personnel at the ready in the event of an emergency. Read more here
Allowing Terminally Ill Patients the Right to Try
Legislation that would permit eligible patients with a terminal illness to use investigational drugs, biological products and devices not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) passed the House on Tuesday.

With the FDA approval process often too slow to save patients suffering from terminal illness, 31 other states allow these patients the right to try medicines, products and devices.

House Bill 45 would permit a manufacturer to make these products available to eligible patients once the products successfully complete the first phase of clinical trials. Under the bill, physicians would not be held liable for recommending experimental products to their terminally ill patients, nor would the bill create a private cause of action against the manufacturers that make the drugs. While the bill does not require insurers to cover these products, they may do so at their own discretion.

The bill now moves to the state Senate.
State Grant Deadline is May 1 for PA College Students
The deadline for students and families to submit their applications for the 2017-18 Pennsylvania State Grant program is May 1. This deadline applies to all renewal applicants and first-time applicants who plan to enroll in colleges, universities or a college transfer program at two-year public or private colleges (except community colleges and designated Pennsylvania Open Admission institutions).

To apply for a Pennsylvania State Grant, applicants must first complete the 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applicants can access the FAFSA online at or Completing the FAFSA online saves time and reduces application and processing errors.

Students and families with questions about the FAFSA or the State Grant Program can call 1-800-692-7392 for personal assistance.
