House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: November 7, 2015 11:38 AM
From: Representative Harry Readshaw
To: All House members
Subject: Drug Offense Mandatory Minimum
Too many of our family members are succumbing to the epidemic of heroin use. In an effort to curb the sale and distribution of opiates, I will be introducing legislation which would make a conviction of the sale of highly addictive narcotics, such as heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs, punishable with a five year mandatory minimum.

This legislation was requested by my friend/constituent who recently lost his son, Matthew, because of drug overdoses.

Please join me in Cosponsoring this legislation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly or call my staff, Margaret Tricarico at 717-772-5568 or mtricari@pahouse.net.

Thank you!

Introduced as HB1693
