Fighting for Local Jobs in the Coal Industry

This Tuesday, June 11,
the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee will vote my legislation that would allow coal refuse disposal sites to stay in business during tough times.

Right now, Pennsylvania limits the temporary cessation of operations at a disposal site to no more than one year. House Bill 1557 would bring us more in line with Federal provisions and other state regulations that ensure mining operators are empowered to prevent permanent shutdowns as a result of temporary market conditions.

You can watch the meeting on my website,, beginning at 10 a.m.

Protecting a School Van’s Valuable ‘Cargo’

 Click here to view video.

On Tuesday, the House unanimously passed my legislation that would allow school transportation vehicles that are smaller than school buses to include revolving and flashing yellow lights.

Please click on the video above for more information on why this is not already a law.

Update on St. Marys Road Project


There has been some miscommunication regarding the Route 255/Joseph Road construction project.

Here is the latest from PennDOT:
  • Another message board is being set in Johnsonburg on the Route 219 bypass, facing south. It will direct drivers heading to the St Marys hospital area to use the official detour of Route 219 and 120.

  • East Joseph Road was blocked on Thursday for a few hours due to a stuck tractor trailer.

  • East Joseph Road access from Route 255 is blocked intermittently by the contractor in order to perform work. When that access is blocked, drivers can access East Joseph Road by using N. Michael Street

  • West Joseph Road access from Route 255 will be blocked today (Friday) and tomorrow for crane positioning and work. Drivers can access West Joseph Road from Cross Road.

  • Only emergency vehicles can cross the temporary access at the bridge during the bridge closure.

  • Older GPS systems will not identify alternate access around the closure.

  • If drivers are using their phones or an application such as WAZE, the information should be up-to-date, and they should be directed to the official detour and/or alternate routes.
I know full well road projects can test our patience. I also know they are necessary infrastructure improvements.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Fixing the Road to Sandy Beach and the ANF

The Laurel Mills Road construction project near Ridgway is underway to make it easier for residents and visitors to reach sites Sandy Beach and the Allegheny National Forest.

The work zone begins about two miles west of Ridgway and continues for another seven miles toward Hallton. Flaggers in the roadway are enforcing an alternating traffic pattern through most of the work zone.

Overall work includes widening and restoration of the deteriorated roadway, drainage improvements, guide rail replacement and pavement markings.

A section of Laurel Run Road between Arroyo Road and the Irwin Run Bridge will be closed next month from July 8-19 with traffic detoured onto Route 949 and Belltown Road before reconnecting with Route 3002. Local traffic will be able to use the closed section, allowing residents to access their homes.

Thanks to PennDOT, the Allegheny National Forest, Spring Creek Township, Ridgway Township, and the North Central Regional Planning and Development Commission for partnering to make this possible.
