“As State Senator, I work hard to serve my constituents and provide them with a strong conservative voice in Harrisburg. I want to ensure all our children and grandchildren have the same opportunities we had, and to help keep our families here in Western Pennsylvania while attracting new residents to our region.” - Senator Wayne Langerholc
FOCUSED ON OUR PRIORITIES
SAFER ROADS. MORE OPPORTUNITIES.
As Chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, Senator Langerholc has worked for safer roads and bridges for the citizens of Pennsylvania, and for more economic opportunities for the residents he serves in Cambria, Centre and Clearfield counties. Chairman Langerholc was able to stop the tolling of our roads and to bring back your tax dollars to address pressing local needs and stimulate economic development in our region to create jobs.
Improving and expanding local infrastructure in our region is vital to improving our quality of life. The important funding he has delivered is helping to expand local rail freight lines as well as passenger service to Pittsburgh. These dollars are improving our roads, moving forward much needed water and sewer projects, upgrading regional business parks, and directing new investments into critical air service and airports across the district. Just as importantly, these funds can help local governments offset costs and hold the line on taxes for their residents all while still providing quality services.
To help our farmers and the entire agricultural community, which is a driving force in our economy, Senator Langerholc prime sponsored legislation that was signed into law by the
Governor to expand the width farm vehicles can be to legally travel the roads. This was a top priority for the Farm Bureau and was necessary to enable farmers across the state to do their
jobs. Supporting agriculture and the farming community in Cambria, Centre and Clearfield counties will continue to be at the top of Senator Langerholc's agenda in Harrisburg and here at home.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & GOOD JOBS
As a Member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Langerholc has been at the forefront of protecting the taxpayers of Pennsylvania by cutting wasteful spending and forcing
state government to live within its means – just like families and seniors in the 35th District do every day. As Senator, he uses his experience as a conservative township supervisor to hold
the line on taxes and focus budget decisions on our priorities including economic development, infrastructure improvements, public safety, and educational opportunities.
“Economic development has been a top priority for me throughout my tenure in the legislature. I am pushing to send a portion of the Johnstown Flood Tax toward distressed cities to assist with revitalization efforts. I have fought to expand broadband internet into rural communities, which will help make those areas more job-friendly and improve public safety. Working with like-minded legislators and community leaders, we also successfully had legislation signed into law to increase the weight limits for natural gas vehicles and expand KOZs in the district. “My goal is to take the steps necessary to maintain the jobs we have and to attract new jobs to our region,” - Senator Wayne Langerholc
PUBLIC SAFETY & BACKING OUR POLICE
As a former prosecutor, Senator Langerholc has led efforts to make our communities safer and to give the victims of crime more rights and a stronger voice. Under his leadership, the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights was signed into law. Senator Langerholc also sponsored the laws that amended the Crime Victims Act, giving victims across Pennsylvania greater protections and a stronger voice throughout the legal process. As our State Senator, he continues to fight to keep our communities safe and to support the men and women in blue who put their lives on the line every day to protect us.
