SB76: The Rest of the Story

With respect and high regard for my colleagues in the State Senate and for the Pennsylvania taxpayers who support Senate Bill 76 (SB76), the so-called “Property Tax Independence Act,” I want to outline here some lesser-known and certainly less-heralded aspects of this legislation which informed my judgment and my recent vote on it.

September 10, 2015: I regret deeply the inconveniences that the closure of the Main Street bridge caused the residents and small businesses of Moosic Borough over the past four years. Public safety is, however, paramount and a dangerous, structurally deficient structure has now been fully replaced and reconstructed to properly serve the needs of local citizens and businesses for years to come. It was a necessary and worthwhile investment of nearly $1.3 million in federal, state and county funding. Legal problems, engineering challenges, and public utility issues all combined to make this bridge replacement a far more complex and time-consuming undertaking than is typical for projects of this scale. I am, however, very glad that we were finally able to cut the ribbon and open the new bridge. I am also proud that the bridge is dedicated to our military servicemen and women as the Moosic Veterans Memorial Bridge. I thank PennDOT and Lackawanna County for their vigilance in completing a difficult project.

A special thanks to all the volunteer coaches who commit so much time and effort on behalf of these wonderful young athletes.
