Association of American Physicians and Surgeons Sues FDA

Association of American Physicians and Surgeons Sues FDA for “Irrational” Interference of Access to Life-Saving Hydroxychloroquine
By Jim Hoft
Published June 14, 2020 at 9:55pm


The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (https://aapsonline.org) filed a lawsuit against Department of Health and Human Services and the FDA for “irrational interference” by the FDA with timely access to hydroxychloroquine.

Hydroxychloroquine is the first choice in a study of 6,000 doctors treating the coronavirus.
In the field and in independent testing hydroxychloroquine displayed amazing results in treating the COVID-19 virus.
Now the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons sued the FDA for its irrational interference to access of the life-saving drug.
Why is an effective & inexpensive drug treatment of #COVID19 being suppressed by FDA?
There is one plausible answer: the successful treatment of COVID19 patients with hydroxychloroquine threatens the sale of billions of doses of a COVID19 vaccine to the World later on.

Update on the Effort to Reopen Pennsylvania



Click here to view video. 

The Pennsylvania State Supreme Court will now be responsible for determining whether or not Gov. Tom Wolf must sign House Resolution 836, which was approved by the General Assembly last week and seeks to end the statewide emergency declaration. The state Senate has filed suit, claiming he does. The governor contests that and is willing to go to court over it.

While Commonwealth Court had already agreed to hear arguments on June 29, all proceedings are now being taken up by the Supreme Court. The petition indicates that the court will address the issue “in due course.”

Please click on the video above to hear my remarks on House Resolution 836 and my rationale for why this piece of legislation is necessary.
 

Ensuring the Safety of Our School Students


Buses are not the only vehicles used to transport school students; however, they ARE the only vehicle required to have flashing yellow lights.

I'm trying to change that with my House Bill 364, which is moving through the Legislature.

Please click here for my progress report on the bill.

 

School entities are now eligible to apply for more than $157 million in federal funds for School Health and Safety Grants to address health and safety needs related to the COVID-19 disaster emergency. Applications are due by Tuesday, June 30, and money must be expended by Oct. 30.

Each school district which successfully applies will receive $120,000 plus a prorated share of the remaining money based upon the school district’s average daily membership. School districts within the 73rd Legislative District are set to receive the following:

•   Brockway Area - $158,462
•   Clearfield Area - $209,006
•   DuBois Area - $265,483
•   Forest Area - $139,456
•   Johnsonburg Area - $142,070
•   Kane Area - $164,857
•   Philipsburg-Osceola - $187,035
•   Ridgway Area - $150,666
•   Saint Marys Area - $200,006
•   West Branch Area - $159,922

Eligible uses for the funding include the purchase of cleaning and sanitizing products; training and professional development of staff on sanitation and minimizing the spread of infectious diseases; equipment purchases; modifying existing areas to support appropriate social distancing of students and staff; providing mental health services and supports; purchasing educational technology for distance learning; and other health and safety programs, items or services necessary to address the COVID-19 disaster emergency.
