HARRISBURG, Dec. 13 – State Reps. Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, and Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Luzerne, have introduced legislation that would make the PA Preferred Organic Program a trademark in Pennsylvania. Since 2019, the PA Preferred Organic Program has been used to increase market opportunities for Pennsylvania farmers. Because of this program, Madden said, Pennsylvania ranks third nationally in organic agriculture sales. “I have an organic farm in my district, Pocono Organics , that provides not only a variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables to purchase but has a litany of programs for children of all ages, veterans and adults,” Madden said. “PA Preferred Organic businesses grow all foods under the sun that are healthy for us, and that alone should be a reason to make the program permanent in our commonwealth.” Pashinski, Democratic chair of the House Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee , said Pennsylvania has 1,055 certified organic farms and more than 93,000 acres of certified organic land in the state. “Pennsylvanians are increasingly seeking a greater quality, quantity and variety of organic foods at their markets and grocery stores,” Pashinski said. “By making Pennsylvania-produced organic products even more readily available, our farmers can continue to benefit from this rapidly expanding market.” Pashinski noted the program would not compete with other state producers but instead Read more

Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, said a $46,990 grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency has been awarded to the Child Advocacy Center of Monroe County. “The Children’s Advocacy Center of Monroe County is dedicated to reducing the occurrence and aftermath of child abuse, while improving the health, welfare and safety of children and families,” Madden said. “Children who have been abused need to be heard.

Before voting against an open carry gun bill, Pa. state Rep. Maureen Madden emphasized how the legislation would heighten danger for law enforcement during traffic stops, make it easier for people like those who participated in the Jan. 6 insurrection to conceal firearms, and the fact that statistics show violence increases in areas where conceal carry without permits is allowed. Time and energy would be better spent passing legislation designed to actually help Pennsylvanians, she said, not bills that decrease safety within our communities. Read more
