Accomplishments

After winning a Special Election, Donna Bullock was sworn in on August 25, 2015 as a member of the General Assembly and immediately went to work for the residents of the 195th Legislative District.

  • Since her first day in office, Representative Donna Bullock stood firm with Governor Wolf and her fellow Democrats for a budget that adequately funds our schools and human services, and isn’t balanced on the backs of working families. Days after her election, she wrote an op-ed, The Easy Way or The Right Way, on the budget impasse, which was published in the Philadelphia Public Record.
  • Rep. Bullock was appointed to the Aging and Older Adult Committee, State Government Committee, and Liquor Control Committee. She is also actively engaged in the Philadelphia Delegation, Pennsylvania Black Legislative Caucus, and Women’s Health Caucus.
  • Rep. Bullock believes that all neighborhoods of the 195th Legislative District should have access to her office and the state services it provides. That’s why she opened an office in West Philadelphia to meet with constituents by appointment and scheduled “pop-up” offices throughout the District to bring services closer to neighborhood residents. Rep. Bullock also regularly attends community meetings throughout the District, so that she can update constituents on legislative matters and hear their concerns.
  • Rep. Bullock is a champion for Pre-K for PA and quality early childhood education programs. She co-sponsored universal pre-k legislation and is considering other legislation to expand full-day kindergarten across the state.
  • Rep. Bullock wants to ensure that all our seniors live with dignity and grace. As a member of the Aging and Older Adult Committee, she co-sponsored legislation that exempts state veterans’ benefits from the income definition for the Property Tax and Rent Rebate Program, so that more seniors can qualify from this benefit. In October 2015, hundreds of seniors attended Rep. Bullock’s Golden Life Senior Fair, co-sponsored by Council President Darrell L. Clarke and State Representative Leslie Acosta.
  • Everyone should have an opportunity to provide for their families. So, Rep. Bullock co-sponsored bills that would help our most vulnerable residents. She immediately signed on to the minimum wage bill, which would increase the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. She also stood with her colleagues on a bill that will expunge the records of non-violent offenders, and thereby increasing their chances for employment. Rep. Bullock recently cosponsored legislation to secure equal pay in Pennsylvania, and wrote about it in a recent Women’s Law Project Blog, I Want to Believe We Can Achieve Equal Pay.   On December 2, 2015, Rep. Bullock sponsored a job fair at the historic Berean Institute that introduced nearly 250 people to area employers.
  • Rep. Bullock is also working to increase opportunity for small businesses. In Harrisburg, she is working with colleagues across the aisle on legislation that would increase the support and resources provided through the certification process for minority-owned, woman-owned, and veteran-owned businesses. Back at home, she is working with local developers to encourage the inclusion of small contractors on construction projects.
  • Shaped by her own personal experience, Rep. Bullock focused on legislation that would raise awareness about homelessness and hunger in our communities. She publicly addressed the issues that impact homeless families and children, such as access to consistent education and social services.
