On Tuesday, May 2nd, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted to pass House Bill 300 by a narrow 102-98 vote, a bill that would cause significant harm to Pennsylvanians across our Commonwealth, particularly in areas of religious freedom and privacy rights. The bill now moves to the PA State Senate.
The House roll call was nearly party-line. Two Republicans voted for House Bill 300: Rep. Aaron Kaufer and Rep. Alec Ryncavage, both representing districts in Luzerne County. One Democrat voted against the bill, Rep. Frank Burns (Cambria). Also, Rep. Joe Emrick was absent for the vote.
Here’s the roll call rundown on this harmful bill. We certainly encourage you to contact your State Representative to either voice your concern, respectfully, if they voted yes on this harmful bill, or to say thank you for their no vote. (To find out who your State Representative is, you may use our action alert here.)
