Issues

Fragrance ban

In November 2013, Hahn announced her intent to introduce legislation banning the use of scented products such as perfume, cologne or body spray in schools having students with fragrance allergies. Her announcement came after a Pennsylvania high school student suffered an allergic reaction to body spray and was taken to the hospital. If passed, Hahn’s bill, the Fragrance Free Schools Act, would mandate that districts or joint school boards develop a written policy banning the use of scented products if notified by a student with a fragrance allergy. Schools would have to distribute the policy with the student code of conduct and post notices at all entrances. Hahn admitted the regulation of fragrance would be challenging but intended to go ahead with the bill. "If you have a piece of legislation and it’s not enforceable, it doesn’t really help," she said. "So I'm hoping that we can come up with a solution that works for everyone."[2]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Pennsylvania scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
