HARRISBURG – Rep. Lori Mizgorski (R-Allegheny) has been selected to join the newly appointed House Republican transportation and infrastructure task force. The task force will work to determine the next phases of infrastructure improvements needed to accommodate the demands of expanding industries and a growing economy without putting any additional burdens on taxpayers.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve on this task force,” said Mizgorski. “With my district close to Pittsburgh and being a board member of the Port Authority of Allegheny County, I am eager to take on this task and continue to have more oversight of transportation and infrastructure issues pertaining to our growing Commonwealth.”
In recent years Pennsylvania has made major improvements in aging bridges and roadways, but the task force will examine the next steps required to ensure Pennsylvania can compete on a global scale.
Along with traditional transportation needs, the task force will take a closer look at how state funds can better serve economic growth, security and state police needs.
Joining Mizgorski on the task force will be members from varied backgrounds and diverse parts of Pennsylvania. Those appointed are Reps. Lynda Schlegel-Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder), Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland), Torren Ecker (R-Adams/Cumberland), Jonathan Fritz (R-Susquehanna/Wayne), Matt Gabler (R-Clearfield/Elk), John Lawrence (R-Chester/Lancaster), Jesse Topper (R-Bedford/Franklin/Fulton) and Ryan Warner (R-Fayette/Westmoreland).
The task force will be chaired by Rep. Martina White (R-Philadelphia), who serves on the House Transportation Committee and as chair of the Subcommittee on Public Transportation.
