Governor Wolf: Restore Pennsylvania Can Address Vital Infrastructure Needs in Carnegie Borough

first_img Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Carnegie, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf toured the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall to see the unfinished Library Park project, its completion stymied by mudslide damage. Following the tour, he outlined the components of the most aggressive infrastructure plan in generations, Restore Pennsylvania.“Heavy rains throughout 2018 demonstrated vividly and tragically that our flood mitigation planning and infrastructure have not kept up, leaving communities and individuals throughout the state with massive cleanup costs, and few options to turn to for assistance,” Gov. Wolf said.“The library and music hall should not have had to use money slated for a green space to repair mudslide damage. But they did what they had to do to make the area safe and secure for residents and visitors.”The governor’s plan will help communities like Carnegie mitigate the effects of flooding and extreme weather, address blight, and expand broadband access and green infrastructure, restoring communities that simply do not have the funding for these projects.To achieve these goals, Governor Wolf announced an ambitious infrastructure initiative, Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax. Restore Pennsylvania will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure.Encompassing new and expanded programs to address five priority infrastructure areas including high speed internet access, storm preparedness and disaster recovery, downstream manufacturing, business development, and energy infrastructure, demolition, revitalization, and renewal, and transportation capital projects, Restore Pennsylvania projects will be driven by local input about community needs. Projects identified by local stakeholders will be evaluated through a competitive process to ensure that high priority, high impact projects are funded and needs across Pennsylvania are met.The governor was joined on the tour and press conference by Senator Wayne Fontana and Representative Anita Kulik.“This region is no stranger to natural disasters and infrastructure problems,” Sen. Fontana said. “And as the impact of climate change unleashes more weather emergencies more often, we need to do all we can to prevent or minimize flooding, landslides, lead poisoning and so many other tragedies. We cannot continue putting band-aids on gaping wounds and continue kicking the can down the road when it comes to our aging infrastructure.”“All the municipalities that make up the 45th District have in some way or another been affected by the heavy rains and flooding that continue to hit our Commonwealth,” Rep. Kulik said. “Homes, businesses, municipal properties have all been destroyed at great cost to our constituents. We are very happy to welcome the Governor to Carnegie to hear about the his Restore PA plan — it it helps open the conversation about how to help our citizens.”Flooding Prevention and RecoveryRestore Pennsylvania will provide funding for flood prevention that will protect against severe weather and save homes and businesses in flood prone areas across the state. Restore Pennsylvania will provide funding to help towns and cities prepare for flooding and severe weather, upgrade flood walls and levees, replace high-hazard dams, and conduct stream restoration and maintenance. Restore Pennsylvania will also establish a disaster relief trust fund to assist individuals who suffer losses that are not compensated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or other programs.BlightRestore Pennsylvania will increase resources for addressing blight by providing financial resources at the local level to establish land banks and acquire and demolish blighted buildings in order to create new development opportunities or provide new green space. The funding will be administered by entities established by the legislature as land banks or demolition funds.BroadbandRestore Pennsylvania will provide funding to completely bridge the digital divide in every community in Pennsylvania, making Pennsylvania a better place to work, do business, and live. Grants will be available to support installation of infrastructure to bring high speed internet to every corner of the commonwealth. Funding will support every phase of the process from feasibility testing to connection.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan here.

Cricket News Rohit Sharma equals Sourav Ganguly’s record in Kotla decider vs Australia

first_imgAustralia managed to post 272/9 after opting to bat in the decider at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Usman Khawaja notched up his second ton and he fell just three runs short of breaking the world record set by David Warner for most runs in a five-match bilateral ODI series, which is 386 against South Africa in 2016. However, India staged a great comeback and chipped in with regular wickets towards the middle overs. Peter Handscomb hit his fourth fifty but Australia managed just 70 runs in the last 10 overs to finish with a total that should pose some problems for India on a wicket that is becoming slow and low as the game progresses. New Delhi: Rohit Sharma entered an elite list of players as he equaled a record set by Sourav Ganguly in the deciding match between India and Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Wednesday. Chasing 273, India lost Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli but Rohit, along with Rishabh Pant held firm and kept India in the hunt to clinch the series against Australia. On 46, Rohit became the latest entrant into the 8000-run club when he tapped Nathan Lyon to backward point in the 22nd over for a single. The Mumbai right-hander achieved it in his 200th innings, same as Ganguly but the Bengal left-hander played 208 games as compared to Rohit’s 205. Ganguly achieved the landmark in the ODI against West Indies in Nagpur in 2002. Rohit is now the joint third-quickest to the landmark, behind Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.Rohit also went past his 41st fifty by tapping Glenn Maxwell’s flatter delivery outside off to the point region for a quick single and he is on the cusp of achieving yet another individual record. The right-hander is on the verge of becoming only the fourth player in history to score 2000 ODI runs against Australia. Rohit has hit 69 sixes against them, which is the most any player has ever hit against Australia in ODIs. He also has seven hundreds, which is the third-most by a player in ODIs against the five-time World Champions, behind Sachin Tendulkar’s tally of nine tons and Virat Kohli’s eight centuries. Sachin Tendulkar once again stands on top with 3077 runs in 71 ODIs against Australia at an average of 44.59. Desmond Haynes and Sir Vivian Richards of the West Indies are second and third respectively with 2262 and 2187 runs respectively.  Virat Kohli is the fastest to 8000 runs in ODIs.India has lost only once to Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla.Rohit Sharma has been dismissed for 0 only once in home ODIs against Australia. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
