President Biden's Agenda

Infrastructure & Jobs Act

Passed with bipartisan support. How did your representatives vote?

Senator Bob Casey voted YES

Senator Pat Toomey voted NO

Representative Reschenthaler voted NO

What this Bill will do for Pennsylvanians

  • $11.3 billion for roads and highways and $1.6 billion for bridge repair and replacement

  • $2.8 billion for public transportation

  • replacement of the 160,000 lead service lines in Pennsylvania

  • $171 million to expand electric vehicle charging networks

  • Expand broadband internet

  • More than $3 billion for abandoned mine reclamation

What does this mean for you and your family?

The 2018 Report Card for Pennsylvania's infrastructure gave the Commonwealth an overall grade of C-, which reflects that PA has some of the worst roads and bridges in the country. This bill will help repair more than 3,300 structurally-deficient bridges and over 7,540 miles of highway in poor condition.

This bill will also expand broadband internet to the more than 390,000 Pennsylvanians who lack access-meaning more kids can do their homework and more families can stay connected.

Letter of the Week

We Will Never Know Just How Many Lives Were Lost....

We will never know just how many American lives were unnecessarily lost to Covid-19. What was gained by not acknowledging or addressing the scientific data and early warnings? Who benefited from spreading misinformation about mask wearing, how the virus is spread, calling it a hoax or just saying it was just going to disappear? The initial lack of response to this catastrophic pandemic will be felt for generations. Children who lost their parents, parents who buried their children, not to mention the far-reaching emotional and physical lasting- in-print that will follow people for the rest of their lives.

The fear, anger, and conspiracy theories that were instigated throughout the course of the pandemic (and continues to this day) gave fuel to the mistrust of what could have saved lives. What was gained to not lessen the loss of a million fellow Americans and how can you justify this? To the people who grieve the death of someone dear that might have been prevented had there been a plan at the onset of the pandemic, there is no justice.

If you do not want to look at the human loss, then look at the economic loss. The pandemic has greatly depressed our ability to lift ourselves out of the hole Covid has put most Americans in. It has resulted in a lower work force, product shortages, inflation and price gouging. Again, who is benefitting from this?

When history is written about this dark time on our nation, what will the take away be? How will the next generation deal with the consequences of how the pandemic was handled.
