ACLU Press Release on 2019-2020 session: Expand access to the ballot by:
Legislative Outcome: Passed House 138-61-4 on 10/29; State Rep. Summer Lee voted NO; Passed Senate 35-14-0 on 10/29; Signed by Governor Tom Wolf on 10/31/19.
Planned Parenthood Action case for voting NO: "The passage of HB 321 in the PA House of Representatives follows a scary trend of bills like this around the country. It is an unconstitutional abortion ban that shows the hypocrisy of those who support it. This bill pretends to help those with disabilities and their families while doing nothing to provide actual services and resources."
Governor's Veto Message: This legislation is a restriction on women and medical professionals and interferes with women's health care and the crucial decision-making between patients and their physicians. Further, I am not aware of a single disability rights group that supports this bill.
Legislative Outcome: Passed House 117-76-9 on May/14/19; State Rep. Summer Lee voted NO; Passed Senate 27-22-0 on Nov/20/19; Vetoed by Governor Tom Wolf on Nov/21/19
NRA-ILA press release: Senate Bill 147 would expand opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by providing for three additional days of hunting on Sundays during the season. Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find time and opportunities outside of the work or school week.
Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 36-14-0 on Jun/29/19; Passed House 144-54-5 on Oct/30/19; State Rep. Summer Lee voted NO; Signed by Governor Tom Wolf on Nov/27/19
