Infrastructure legislation introduced by Reps. Jared Solomon and Wendi Thomas passed the House and Senate and is headed to the governor’s desk. The legislation would work to set up legacy infrastructure projects throughout the state in preparation of the upcoming 250th birthday of the United States in 2026.
Solomon said, “We on the Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial — America250PA — want to both preserve the legacy of our heritage and invest in the commonwealth’s future by repairing, restoring and revitalizing our infrastructure. This legislation would seek to provide the framework and identify valuable projects for all 67 counties in Pennsylvania to celebrate the 250th birthday of the U.S.”
The bill works to create and restore monuments, trails and veteran memorials throughout the state.
“This legislation will engage all the citizens of the commonwealth from all 67 counties in the celebration of America250PA,” Thomas said. “Pennsylvanians will be involved in selecting a lasting project for their region, and in this way be a part of the national celebration while celebrating Pennsylvania’s contribution to the past and the future.”
