Congresswoman Madeleine Dean Visits Montgomery County to Tout Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
Congresswoman Madeleine Dean used the opportunity during her visit to Montgomery County to speak about the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and how it is expected to benefit Pennsylvania, writes Jon Campisi for the Patch.
Dean, who is a Democrat representing Pennsylvania’s Fourth Congressional District, was in Jenkintown on February 11, where she talked about the role of the legislation in funding infrastructure in the Keystone State and the Philadelphia region.
“Montgomery County and Berks Counties are ready to take advantage of the infrastructure investments Congress passed last year – from our roads, bridges, and highways to Noble station and beyond,” said Dean. “These once-in-a-generation dollars will transform our communities and equip our Commonwealth for the 21st century. I’m grateful for the commitment from PennDOT, SEPTA, and local officials to see this potential realized.”
Montgomery County Commissioners Val Arkoosh and Ken Lawrence, State Sen. Art Haywood, State Rep. Ben Sanchez, and Scott France of the Montgomery County Planning Commission joined Dean at the event, along with several other officials.
Recently, Pennsylvania was identified as the state with the second-highest number of structurally deficient bridges in the nation.
