Delaware County elected officials applaud $4.6 million in funding for county’s 911 system

(Dec 07, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 6– State representatives and senators from Delaware County announced today a $4,561,000 Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program award to improve the county’s aging 911 system. Through bipartisan and bicameral efforts, elected officials helped secure funding to benefit more than 560,000 Pennsylvanians and help Delaware County’s first responders. This project will redevelop existing sites and add additional sites to ensure no loss of communication. It includes 24 tower upgrades to provide acceptable county-wide communication coverage, shelter structures, ice bridge, grounding, electric, HVAC, core work additions, and 911 center equipment to communicate effectively in emergency situations with citizens and first responders, as well as with surrounding counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania. “This strategic investment in Delaware County’s emergency response infrastructure will ensure that communities like Darby and Yeadon will be better positioned to respond when our neighbors need help and keep the community safe,” said House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton, D-Delaware/Phila. “Upgrading Delco’s 911 system was an initiative that received bipartisan support from lawmakers throughout the county. This project serves as a great example of what we can accomplish when we work together – we were able to bring over $4 million home,” said Rep. Jennifer O’Mara, who Read more

Lawmakers, activists discuss bill to protect Chester Water Authority customers

(Oct 26, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 26 – State Reps. Leanne Krueger and John Lawrence were joined by local activists and union representatives at a news conference Tuesday at the state Capitol, where they discussed legislation to protect the customers of municipal and authority-owned water or wastewater systems in the acquisition process. Krueger, D-Delaware, and Lawrence, R-Chester/Lancaster, have introduced legislation ( H.B. 1936 ) to amend Section 1329 of the Public Utilities Law to prohibit the use of that section for the sale of municipal or authority-owned water or wastewater systems to private companies using the valuation procedure outlined there unless the system is in financial and/or operational distress. Chester Water Authority is a financially stable utility being pursued by Aqua Pennsylvania for acquisition. “Sales through Section 1329 always drive up rates for customers, so those sales should be limited to distressed systems that truly need assistance,” said Krueger. “Chester Water Authority is not in financial or operational distress. If passed, this bill would prevent Aqua from marking up an offer price to take over CWA and passing those costs on to ratepayers. I will continue fighting to protect CWA customers.” “Chester Water Authority’s Board unanimously rejected a buyout offer,” said Lawrence. “Thousands of CWA ratepayers have spoken out against a Read more

 

Krueger: Time for legislature to act on supporting workers

(Oct 22, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 22 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger delivered the following remarks during a news conference today with Gov. Tom Wolf and Department of Labor and Industry Secretary Jennifer Berrier regarding the governor’s plans for supporting workers : “I want to thank Governor Wolf and Secretary Berrier for making the trip to Delaware County today. As the Democratic secretary of the Pennsylvania House Labor and Industry Committee, I can tell you that my colleagues and I have been working hard to advance good bills to support working families. I am grateful for the Governor’s executive actions to support workers, but there is much left to be done. There are many actions that are outside of what the Governor has the power to do through executive orders. It is time for the legislature to take action too. “So far this year, my colleagues have introduced 50 pro-worker bills that have been referred to the House Labor and Industry Committee. Fifty separate bills. We have introduced bills to fix the problems with the Unemployment Compensation system and to address worker misclassification, which impacts people working in the building trades. We have introduced bills to raise the minimum wage, multiples bills to address equal pay for women, and bills to support parental leave and paid family leave and paid sick leave. We have introduced bills to support teachers and nurses and farmworkers and low-wage workers and nursing mothers. Not one of these Read more
