Governor Wolf Outlines How Restore Pennsylvania Will Benefit Municipalities


Harrisburg, PA — (RealEstateRama) — Building on his commitment to support Pennsylvania’s communities, Governor Tom Wolf spoke at the Pennsylvania Municipal League’s Capitol Conference to outline how Restore Pennsylvania will benefit municipalities and overhaul Pennsylvania’s infrastructure. The massive rebuilding plan funded through a commonsense severance tax will help commonwealth communities prevent flooding, eliminate blight, and expand broadband access.

“Restore Pennsylvania plan is the only plan anyone has to pay for critical infrastructure repairs,” said Governor Wolf. “I have yet to visit a community that would not benefit greatly from this proposal and I’m determined to fight for the critical infrastructure improvements that will bolster every community in the commonwealth.”

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.
