Harrisburg Update

A quick look at what’s happening in Harrisburg
and the 125th Legislative District...


Breast Cancer Awareness Month


To honor those who have fought breast cancer or are fighting it now, the fountain at the Pennsylvania State Capitol’s East Wing was dyed pink on Monday for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink fountain is also a reminder to all women of the importance of mammograms and early detection. Every day, 37 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Pennsylvania, and more than 2,000 Pennsylvania women die each year from the disease. However, more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors are alive today in the United States. We honor all those affected this month.
 

Our Hearts Go Out to Las Vegas Shooting Victims, Families

Earlier this week, the governor ordered all Commonwealth flags to be flown at half-staff until sunset on Friday, Oct. 6, to honor the victims of the horrific domestic terror attack in Las Vegas. The state Capitol building was also lit up in blue, gold and green to honor the victims and to stand in solidarity with the State of Nevada.
 

PennDOT Closures for Columbus Day Weekend
All PennDOT driver license and photo centers, including its full-service center in Harrisburg, will be closed Saturday, Oct. 7, through Monday, Oct. 9, in observance of Columbus Day. Customers may still obtain a variety of driver and vehicle products and services, including all forms, publications and driver-training manuals, online through PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website, dmv.pa.gov.
 

2017 Highway Safety Survey
PennDOT wants to know what you think. The agency, which is responsible for nearly 40,000 miles of highway and roughly 25,000 bridges is seeking motorists’ input on highway safety, traffic safety enforcement and driving behaviors through an online survey. The results of the survey will provide officials with a glimpse into how Pennsylvania drivers think and act when it comes to highway safety. It should take about five minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous.

Also, PennDOT is reminding motorists to watch out for deer while driving. If you see one deer, slow down and remain cautious because more from the herd could easily follow. To report a dead deer on a state road, call 1-800-FIX-ROAD.
                                    

Better Protecting Consumers from Data Breaches
Legislation is expected to advance in the state House in the coming weeks to respond to recent breaches of personal and financial data. Two new House bills are designed to further protect consumers who are victims of data breaches that open them to possible identity theft.

The first proposal would require notification of a breach from the entity where the breach occurred to the affected consumer within 30 days and to the state attorney general. The notification would include the date the breach occurred, the type of information subject to the breach, a toll-free number and the address of credit reporting agencies. The entities must also develop policies to safeguard and discard personal consumer information.

The second bill would waive the current credit freeze fee, which charges up to $10 per account. In the instance of a data breach, consumers would be provided with three months of free credit monitoring and up to three free credit reports for one calendar year after the date the breach is reported. None of these would apply to a credit reporting agency that has not experienced a breach.

These two bills were introduced following the Equifax data breach, which was the largest data breach in history – exposing the personal information of at least 143 million Americans, including 5.4 million Pennsylvanians.
 

It’s Flu Shot Season
The Department of Health is reminding Pennsylvanians that the best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated each year. There are many places you can get a flu shot, if you’re interested. Click here to find a location nearby.
 

Nominate PA’s Trail of the Year
Pennsylvania has more than 11,000 miles of beautiful trails that stretch over every corner for our Commonwealth, from gentle pathways through preserved greenways to rugged trails scaling mountains. Each year, the Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee designates a Trail of the Year to help build enthusiasm and support for both large and small trails, and raise public awareness about the value of our state’s trail network. You can nominate your favorite trail for the 2018 Pennsylvania Trail of the Year by clicking here.
