Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr
Cambria County Emissions Update
The Senate Transportation Committee voted to move forward my Senate Bill 744 which exempts Blair, Cambria, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Mercer, and Westmoreland Counties form the vehicle emissions testing program. This is the first step in the legislative process and we will continue to fight for the people of western Pennsylvania who have been saddled with this onerous requirement for too long.
Bill to Allow for Wider Farm Equipment on PA Roads unanimously voted out of the House Transportation Committee
The House Transportation Committee unanimously approved two of my bills this week.
Senate Bill 338 increases the allowable width of farm vehicles, with added safety precautions, allowed on roads for short moves.
Senate Bill 117 designates the Seaman Apprentice Kenneth D. Scaife Memorial Bridge in Johnstown to honor a fallen soldier who lost his life in Vietnam.
I look forward to both of these bills advancing to the full House of Representatives for consideration.

Bedford County Courthouse was busy with visitors to the Bedford County Safety/Wellness Committee’s 2019 Health and Community Resource Fair. What a wonderful program and opportunity for individual to obtain information about the many programs and resources available to them.
I attended the special flag ceremony at the Johnstown Inclined Plane. The flag is a reminder of who we are and to reflect on our freedoms and the principles of our great nation…for which that flag stands.
I am always pleased to recognize those individuals who contribute in a meaningful way toward the well-being of their communities and this Commonwealth.

I want to congratulate Charles on his 40-year career and wish him continued success in the years to come.
I had the privilege to present a Senate Citation to Joanne Klucik for her 45 years of dedicated and distinguished service to the Cambria County Association for Blind and Handicap (CCABH).
