Lyme Disease: What You Need to Know

By Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh/Berks)

Pennsylvania has the unfortunate distinction of being the state with the highest number of Lyme disease cases in the country, with 12,200 cases of Lyme disease being reported in 2016 (the most recent statistics to date).

 

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that most people get from the bite of a deer tick. If left untreated, the disease can cause serious physical and neurological problems that are hard to manage down the road.

 

If you are heading outdoors to go fishing, hunting, camping or enjoying other activities, I encourage you to take the proper precautions. The best ways

National welfare reform expert: families are better off when they work

HARRISBURG – Dr. Ron Haskins, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, briefed several state senators about his research regarding the success of work requirements in lifting people out of poverty at a Senate briefing on Tuesday.

Fighting the Crisis Next Door–Congressman Barletta’s Report

Share

June 15, 2018 Fighting the Crisis Next Door The startling statistics speak for themselves. Every 25 minutes in the U.S., a baby is born having already been exposed to drugs and suffering from withdrawal. Every day, 115 Americans die due to the misuse of opioids. Last year, over 5,000 Pennsylvanians died from drug-related overdoses, a 15 percent increase from 2016.

There isn’t a community across our country that hasn’t been impacted by the opioid epidemic, which is why it is more important than ever for us to work across the aisle to find solutions. To battle the opioid crisis, we must have a strong response that addresses not only access to treatment and prevention methods, but also the impact on

Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania Politicians often confuse wants and needs. View this email in your browser Education Access Program Becomes Piggy Bank for Senate

The “Education Access Program” (EAP) budget item has increased by nearly 600 percent since the 2014-2015 budget cycle. Initially, the EAP had a $3.95 million budget. It grew to over $23 million last year. If you dig into it a little, you’ll find that the funds from the Program have been requested and spent on projects mainly to benefit Senate Democrats. In some cases, the funds go to school districts directly, but the majority of the funds have gone to support organizations like: The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts, The Bryn Mawr Film Institute, and
