WEST CHESTER (October 11, 2017) – Residents, families, and community members impacted by current or planned natural gas pipeline projects are invited to join state Senators Andy Dinniman and John Rafferty for a special press conference and rally at the State Capitol in Harrisburg on Tuesday, October 17.

“Residents, homeowners, and families have real and valid concerns regarding pipeline construction activities and the potential threats to their health, safety, and well-being,” Dinniman said. “In Chester County, we have serious concerns regarding Mariner East, but this is a statewide issue with myriad individuals and families across the Commonwealth impacted by the seemingly endless number of pipeline projects that are either already underway or on the horizon.”
The event will begin at 11 a.m. with a press conference in the Capitol Media Center where Dinniman and Rafferty will announce a bipartisan package of legislation aimed to improve safety along pipeline routes.
In addition, Dinniman and Rafferty will be joined by members of the Uwchlan Safety Coalition, concerned residents and parents, and representatives of various other environmental and safety organizations in calling on Governor Wolf to halt pipeline drilling and construction activities until adequate inspection and safety measures are implemented.
Immediately afterward, residents and community members will hand-deliver a petition and letters to the governor’s office before beginning an afternoon of lobbying efforts in Harrisburg.
