Shapiro signs Paul Miller’s Law allowing police to ticket distracted drivers using handheld devices

Nearly 12 years after a grieving mother approached state Sen. Rosemary Brown at a community meeting and asked her to support a tougher distracted driving law, Gov. Josh Shapiro on Wednesday signed a ban on using handheld electronics behind the wheel.

Deluzio appointed to House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure

“Membership on this committee provides me more opportunities to fight not only for rail safety, but also for major Western PA priorities like better passenger rail, stronger and more resilient infrastructure like water and flood management systems, airports, highways, bridges, public transit, locks and dams, and more,” said Deluzio said in a statement Tuesday.
