Dear Friend,

As we wrap up our legislative session for the year, here is the latest news from Harrisburg and Chester County.

State Senator Andy Dinniman

Mariner East Concerns – There was more fallout on the controversial and problem-plagued Mariner East pipeline as yet another sinkhole formed along the route and the “Safety Seven” hearing before the PUC continued in Harrisburg. I have repeatedly voiced my concerns about the safety and permitting of this pipeline project since as early as five years ago – long before it became big news and the subject of three criminal investigations.

BIG News for Open Space – This week we succeeded in securing $1.5 million in funding to preserve nearly 1,000 acres in Elk, Franklin, and New London. There are very few pieces of land like this left in our region. It will be added to the White Clay Creek Preserve, ultimately leading to the creation of one of the largest areas of preserved land – more than 7,000 acres – in the Mid-Atlantic. Read More.

Athletics Make an Impact – Earlier this fall, Immaculata University dedicated a new track, which I supported by securing $500,000 in state funding. This past week, I had the honor of recognizing the seven newest inductees into the Chester County Sports Hall of Fame. Sports bring people together and they’re an important part of the education of our young people – from developing team skills to making healthy lifestyle choices to building strong role models.

State Senator Andy Dinniman recently attended the opening of new exhibition at the State Museum of Pennsylvania on renowned Pa. Capitol building muralist, Violet Oakley. Oakley, the first female artist to receive a government mural commission in the nation, spent nearly a quarter of a century – from 1902 to 1927 – painting 43 murals for the Pennsylvania State Capitol. “Picturing a More Perfect Union: Violet Oakley’s Mural Studies for the Pennsylvania Senate Chamber, 1911–1919” opens to the public Friday and runs through Sunday, April 26, 2020.
