A new topic will be highlighted every month.

This month is Jobs.

Latest Policy Hearing

Senator Anthony H. Williams requested a public policy hearing to discuss the controversial cosmetology school licensing requirement for natural hair braiders.

“It is completely unnecessary to require natural hair braiders to complete hundreds of hours of cosmetology school instruction. My legislative proposal would eliminate this costly and senseless requirement that discourages interest in the profession.”
–Senator Anthony H. Williams (D-Philadelphia)

Hearing on Climate Change

The Pennsylvania Senate Democrats hosted a policy hearing to discuss local and state efforts to combat climate change. 

“In the absence of federal leadership on climate change, it is imperative that Pennsylvania continue to participate in cooperative efforts to stave off the catastrophic consequences of global warming.”
–Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa (D-Allegheny)

PA Senate Democrats Stand for Women’s Equality.

Tackling issues such as closing the wage gap, protecting victims of domestic violence, fighting for workplace equality, ensuring paid family leave, and defending a woman’s right to control her own body and health choices are paramount because when women thrive, we all thrive.  

Combating Addiction in the Community


Combating opioid abuse and addiction must continue to be a priority at the national, state, and local levels.

Through the month of September, Senate Democrats hosted a series of open houses to discuss efforts and provide resources to battle addiction.
