Malagari pleased measure honoring Godshall passed the PA House unanimously

Bill would designate road to honor former Rep. Godshall

HARRISBURG, June 8 – State Rep. Steve Malagari, D-Montgomery, voted with his PA House colleagues to unanimously pass H.B. 1560, a bill that would designate numerous roads and bridges across Pennsylvania in honor of men and women who devoted their lives to public service.  

The bill would designate a portion of Pennsylvania Route 113 from the intersection with Schoolhouse Road in Franconia Township and State Route 4027, also known as County Line Road, in Souderton Borough, as the Honorable Robert W. Godshall Memorial Highway. 

“I’m so pleased language I originally introduced in 2021 has been included in the bill that passed this week to honor former state Representative Robert W. Godshall,” Malagari said. “I am so fortunate to occupy the seat once held by Representative Godshall, and I’ve witnessed firsthand how his life of service continues to have a positive effect on the people and communities in Montgomery County.” 

Godshall served in the state House from 1983 through his retirement in 2018. Godshall died on Nov. 24, 2019, at the age of 86.   

After passage on concurrence Tuesday, H.B. 1560 will head to the desk of Gov. Tom Wolf to be signed into law.
