Thank you for taking action to advocate for the passage of driver’s license suspension reform

Update: Governor Wolf officially signed House Bill 163, now Act 95, into law on October 24, 2018.

House Bill 163 passed out of the PA Senate yesterday (October 17, 2018) with bi-partisan, UNANIMOUS support before passing the House with a vote of 179-1. It is now on its way to Governor Tom Wolf’s desk, where he is expected to sign it in the coming weeks.

With its passage, THOUSANDS of Pennsylvanians will now be able to find a job, make it to work, drive to appointments, see family members, and access support services that are critical to getting their lives back on track.

This reform is essential to advancing PUMP’s Advocacy + Public Policy Agenda, which is our vision for equity in the Pittsburgh region.

We believe in protection and support for vulnerable people, including formerly incarcerated people. We believe in ensuring everyone has access to opportunities for success through access to quality employment opportunities that benefit individuals, families, communities, and our entire region.

And, most importantly, we believe in YOU – the active and engaged residents who take action to create change.

As a partner organization of the Driven to Work Coalition, we want to thank all of you for joining us in advocating for the passage of HB 163 to our state legislators and making this incredible, impactful reform possible.

Thank you to our PA State Senators and Representatives

This reform would also not have been possible without the hard work of our PA State Senators and Representatives. THANK YOU to our legislators who worked together to achieve real driver’s license reform and create positive, commonsense change for the Commonwealth.
