“My father was a teacher and later became a principal, so I know all of the time and hours teachers and public employees put in for the benefit of children and their community,” Deasy said. “Retirees should not have to choose between filling their prescriptions or purchasing groceries. If we want to do the right thing, we need to dedicate these funds now to avoid an even more dire crisis for our former public servants.” Read more

HARRISBURG, March 7 – Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, said he is honored to be appointed the majority chair of the House Liquor Control Committee for the 2023-24 legislative session. The Liquor Control Committee handles legislation dealing with the manufacturing and sale of alcohol in the state through Pennsylvania’s Liquor Code. It also oversees the operations of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, as well as liquor enforcement, which is handled by the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement within the Pennsylvania State Police. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the majority chairman of this committee,” Deasy said. “In this new role, I remain committed to looking for ways to help small businesses that are still recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I will also fight to preserve the family-sustaining jobs of 3,500 state store workers previously threatened by efforts to privatize the state’s liquor system.” Deasy has served as the minority chair of the Liquor Control Committee since 2019.

Dan Deasy announced today that two local projects have been selected to receive $400,000 in gaming and economic development funding, awarded Tuesday by the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Financing Authority. “I want to congratulate all of the people who worked to make these projects possible, and I want to thank the financing authority for continuing to invest in our communities,” Deasy said. “These may not be big highway projects or large redevelopment initiatives, but each will have a positive impact on their communities and neighborhoods.” The grants awarded Tuesday include: Township of Scott, $200,000 to fund improvements at three stormwater basin locations. Pittsburgh Musical Theater, $200,000 to address water infiltration of the building and other repairs to preserve the building’s exterior.

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 2 – State Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, announced today that the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program awarded $583,467 in funding for the Sheraden Park rehabilitation project in Pittsburgh. The funding will be used for phase one of improvements to the hiking trails, hillside dog park, wilderness education area, ADA-accessible community garden and apiary. The project also includes site preparation, grading, landscaping, signage, stair repair, pedestrian lighting and safety improvements. “Sheraden Park has provided many outdoor benefits for our community and this redevelopment project would make it more accessible to more people,” Deasy said. “I believe in the park’s potential to provide more recreational activities and opportunities through this project. I’m happy to have helped in securing a grant that invests in the park’s future.” Grants through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program are administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.
