Watch Live

PITTSBURGH – A joint Senate hearing scheduled for Friday, Oct. 14 will delve into the significance of Pennsylvania’s waterways to energy and economic development, said Sens. Gene Yaw (R-23) and Camera Bartolotta (R-46).

Both the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy and the Labor and Industry committees will hear testimony from business and industry groups interested in leveraging our rivers to encourage workforce development, energy growth and economic development across the state.

“Pennsylvania’s strategic location along several prime waterways should be a calling card for businesses looking to expand or relocate into our region,” Yaw said. “It’s imperative that we don’t miss any opportunity to attract growth to our state and that includes marketing ourselves as the premier place to do business.”

“As our economy struggles against the crushing effects of inflation exacerbated by decisions made at the national level, it is more critical than ever for public officials serving at the state level to remain dedicated to improving the economy,” Bartolotta said. “We must capitalize on all available resources for the benefit of Pennsylvanians.”

The hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. at the Allegheny County Courthouse located at 436 Grant St. in Pittsburgh.
