Lt. Gov. Austin Davis: “[Senator Casey’s] an Effective Lawmaker Who’s Delivering for Pennsylvania”

PENNSYLVANIA – Lieutenant Governor Austin Davis recently praised Senator Bob Casey for helping to secure $132 million to make critical repairs to the McKees Rocks, Fort Duquesne, and West End bridges in Pittsburgh that thousands of Pennsylvanians depend on for travel every year. A significant amount of the funding came from the bipartisan infrastructure law, which Senator Casey helped pass into law. Since the law’s passage, Senator Casey has successfully steered billions in federal funding from the law to fund critical infrastructure projects across Pennsylvania.

TribLive: Lt. Gov. Austin Davis: Casey helping to ‘get stuff done’

  • A few weeks ago, I was proud to announce that Pennsylvania secured $132 million to make critical repairs to the McKees Rocks, Fort Duquesne and West End bridges. These bridges are essential to drivers of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania’s economy, helping to connect Pennsylvanians to one another and making sure people can get to work and school.
  • But the funding for these projects might have never been announced if it wasn’t for the work of U.S. Sen. Bob Casey. A significant amount of the funding is coming from the bipartisan infrastructure law, which Casey supported and voted to pass. He’s been a tireless advocate for Pennsylvania in ensuring we receive our share of federal infrastructure funding from the law. Many of the big infrastructure projects we have announced — like this one — would not have been possible without Casey’s work steering federal investments toward Pennsylvania.
  • While announcing the funding for these projects, I also said it was yet another example of our “get stuff done” attitude. Casey is a Pennsylvania leader who undeniably epitomizes this attitude. He’s an effective lawmaker who’s delivering for Pennsylvania.
