Philadelphia City Council unanimously voted to approve Bill No.170674-A, a Bill introduced by Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. (4th District) which will amend Section 10-825 of the Philadelphia Code, entitled “Stun Guns” by further providing for the regulation of stun guns, also known as electric or electronic incapacitation devices.
Philadelphia officials are considering eliminating the cash bail system which could annually save the city $75 million. It takes a financial toll on the city to hold individuals awaiting trials for minor offenses. Councilman Jones has been leading the reform efforts by addressing the underlying issues with the offender instead of sending them straight to jail. This will lead to a more progressive judicial system reducing recidivism.
A vote of support was given by Councilman Jones for the “Rebuild” initiative. The purpose of the bill was to move 500 million dollars to the restoration of park and Rec. centers throughout the city. Additionally, an objective was to raise the diversity in the workforce of construction.
In June of 2017 the councilman supported legislation that would expand SEPTA’s amount of vehicles for the purpose of making it easier for people to get to and from work if their place of employment was out of the city.
