PA drivers to see speed cameras in certain work zones in as little as 120 days

Pennsylvania drivers who decide to speed in certain work zones will now have more consequences than just a guilty conscience.

As of October 19th, a bill that would provide a five-year trial period for PennDOT to place speed cameras in active work zones was signed by Governor Wolf.

Sen. David Argall (R-Schuylkill) and Sen. Judy Schwank (D-Berks) had been working on getting Senate Bill 172 passed for two years. The bill passed through the House this September by a vote of 176-19 and then through the Senate earlier this month with just one no vote.

After years of working to get Senate Bill 172 passed, Senators David Argall (R-Schuylkill) and Judy Schwank (D-Berks) are a step closer following its final passage in the Senate today, and now need House approval and the governor's signature to see it enacted. 

The bill would establish a five-year pilot program for using speed cameras in active work zones on interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Redistricting reform directed into new House committee while Senate Democrats diverge

Six Democratic Senators voted against an amended redistricting bill during a procedural committee stop Wednesday, signalling their opposition to a bill that had previously advanced with unanimous support.

This doesn’t mean the bill is dead. In fact, every Appropriations Committee Republican, who have a supermajority in the Senate, voted in favor of SB 22.
