McNeill: $1 million awarded for airport improvements

(Dec 26, 2020)

WHITEHALL, Dec. 26 – State Rep. Jeanne McNeill announced that the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority has been awarded a $1 million state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant. The grant will be used for the terminal expansion at Lehigh Valley International Airport for the security checkpoint and terminal connector project. “This funding will help the airport authority improve the movement and flow in the airport, as well as enhance safety and security by enlarging the terminal and updating the TSA screening area to meet TSA standards,” said McNeill, D-Lehigh. “The changes should result in an overall improved passenger experience. This expansion project is greatly needed and I was glad to help the authority receive this funding, and I thank the governor for his support.” Currently, the Lehigh Valley Airport requires both departing and arriving passengers to travel through the same tunnel, where the security checkpoint also is located, which only has two lanes. TSA standards require three lanes, and four lanes will be required in 10 years. The RACP is administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects. Read more

Let’s be patient; Make sure every vote counts

(Nov 05, 2020)

As of this writing, there are approximately 750,000 Pennsylvania votes that need to be counted. That is more than 750,000 Pennsylvanians who lawfully casted their vote and deserve to be heard. Counting every citizen’s legal, timely vote is imperative. As workers securely make progress on tallying the results, we must be patient. This process may take several days, but the integrity and sanctity of the vote in our state must be maintained. Last Fall, in a bipartisan showing, the Pennsylvania General Assembly agreed to allow for mail-in ballots. Since then, House Democrats have made many efforts to help clarify any confusion about the process and give local election boards the tools needed to securely and expeditiously process votes cast by mail. Unfortunately, our Republican colleagues chose political gamesmanship over a genuine effort to ensure a smooth election. Their inaction failed to allow for the early processing of ballots received – as 32 other states permit-- and, in turn, why there is a delay in knowing the outcome of this election. The ambiguity in the law did not address their local official’s concerns; nor does it protect every Pennsylvanian’s constitutional right to vote and our obligation to make sure those votes are counted. Now, more than ever, we must ensure that we uphold the freedoms guaranteed in our state and nation’s constitution. In these unprecedented times, the voters must have the final say, not the candidates or Read more
