Clean Environment

EnvironmentMy legislative track record demonstrates a deep commitment to protecting Pennsylvania’s natural environment.  In the House of Representatives, I helped pass Growing Greener II, an enormously successful program that provides $625 million in new funds to clean up streams, preserve open space, and improve our natural infrastructure.

I also supported enacting Renewable Portfolio Standards, which require Pennsylvania’s energy companies to produce 18% of their energy through renewable technology, including solar, wind, and geothermal.

My hybrid cars proposal, which is now law, requires that 25% of all vehicles in the state fleet be hybrid.  This saves the environment AND taxpayer dollars. Because of my environmentally-conscious legislation and the work of our grassroots environmental allies across the Commonwealth, Pennsylvania has become a leader in green initiatives.
