WEST CHESTER (August 18) – State Senator Andy Dinniman was recognized by Penn Environment for his work and record on behalf of the environment this week.

“I’m honored to be recognized by an independent, grassroots organization like Penn Environment,” Dinniman said. “It’s important that we continue to work to protect our environment and make informed and well-researched decisions regarding the future of our land, air, and water.”

Dinniman met with a group of six members of the statewide, citizens-based environmental advocacy organization to discuss the importance of protecting natural resources, preserving open space and safeguarding clean streams and waterways.

The group also presented Dinniman with an award naming him a “2016 Climate Champion” for his votes in support of the Clean Power Plan, updated gas drilling regulations, and other important programs designed to safeguard our health, protect our environment, and cut pollution.

Last week, Dinniman spoke passionately about the need for pipeline companies to respect environmental and public safety concerns, as well as local land use decisions and individual property rights, at a Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection public hearing on Sunoco Logistics’ Mariner East II.

Dinniman, who serves on the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, has been a leader in working to ensure that energy and economic development needs are balanced with environmental protection and preservation efforts.

“We understand that pipelines are necessary to get natural gas to market,” he said. “But we still must work to ensure that they are installed safely and properly with regard to our homes, health, well-being, and quality of life. It’s important that residents make their voices heard and receive transparent and complete answers when it comes to questions about where and how pipelines are situated.”
