Webster commends nearly $2 million in state grants to improve Montgomery County roads

(Nov 19, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 19 – State Rep. Joe Webster, D-Montgomery, today announced the awarding of nearly $2 million in grants poised to enhance and propel road projects in the 150 th Legislative District. These grants were awarded through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund program. “This much needed influx in funding is earmarked to improve roadways in both Lower Providence Township and Upper Providence Township,” Webster said. “It is no secret that our infrastructure, particularly our roadways, is aging and must be invested in to benefit all of the individuals who use these roadways daily. “Failing to properly invest in our infrastructure right now could have potential catastrophic consequences to our economic future and overall quality of life. I applaud this funding and look forward to seeing these envisioned projects become a reality,” he added. Lower Providence Township was awarded $1.75 million for intersection improvements along Park Avenue at Crawford Road and Eaglesville Road. The project will realign the roadways of Park Avenue, Crawford Road and Eaglesville Road to eliminate the offset intersection and install a traffic signal. Upper Providence Township was awarded $212,330 designated to be utilized for preliminary engineering costs for a roundabout at the intersection of Dreibelbis Road, Black Rock Road, and 2 nd Avenue. The existing intersection Read more

Sainato, Wheatley, Pisciottano, Webster unveil new bills to boost Pa. veterans

(Nov 08, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Nov. 8 – As Pennsylvania prepares to celebrate Veterans Day, state Reps. Chris Sainato, D-Lawrence; Jake Wheatley and Nick Pisciottano, both D-Allegheny; and Joe Webster, D-Montgomery, joined fellow lawmakers at Soldier’s Grove to unveil a package of bills aimed at improving the lives of those who have served. Sainato, Democratic chairman of the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, said he is proud to be part of a bipartisan effort to shape policy and legislation for the commonwealth’s large and active veteran population. “Our veterans deserve the most vigilant, responsive lawmaking we can provide,” Sainato said. “There is always more we can do to improve the laws in ways that address their concerns. It’s what motivated us to introduce legislation to improve the professional licensing process, so boards better understand how military skills and experience translate to civilian license requirements and veterans have an easier time getting those licenses.” Wheatley, who is Democratic chairman of the House Professional Licensure Committee and a Marine veteran, said, “I want to thank my fellow members for working with me to get this bill across the finish line in the House. This bill will help veterans, service members and their families as they transition to civilian life, smoothing the path for them to join the work force or start their own Read more

August 30 Update: Gerrymandering, FDA Approves First COVID-19 Vaccine, and Federal Pandemic Unemployment Benefits Program Ending

(Aug 30, 2021)

STAY INFORMED HOW WE VOTED CONTACT ME Dear Neighbor, I hope you are well! I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on a few happenings in the district and in Harrisburg. As always, I hope you find this informative and useful. Gerrymandering Yesterday, the Legislative Reapportionment Commission voted in favor of House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton’s resolution to end the practice of prison gerrymandering. The commission’s action changes the current practice of counting incarcerated individuals as residents of the prison location rather than their previous residential address for drawing state House and Senate districts. Prison gerrymandering was a poor practice from the beginning, and this change is a vital step towards fairness and equity in Pennsylvania elections. Prison gerrymandering is advantageous politically for those who would prefer to have control even when they are in the minority. In 1980, there were a handful of state prisons in Pennsylvania. In 2021, there are 24. Mass incarceration is already bad policy – it shouldn’t be used to undermine the fairness of elections, Read more
