Public Safety is Paramount to Upholding PA Constitution

(HARRISBURG) – Senate Majority Leader Joe Pittman (R-41) issued the following statement in response to Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s filing of an injunction for Act 40 of 2023.

“Ensuring public safety is paramount to upholding our constitutional obligation as elected officials. Larry Krasner’s video announcement this morning while shielding himself from questions from the public and press further demonstrates his weak and absent leadership.

“Act 40 is strong legislation which received bi-partisan support by the General Assembly, was signed into law by Democrat Governor Shapiro and is supported by SEPTA. It is time DA Krasner stops playing political games and starts working with Republicans and Democrats alike to make sure America’s 6th largest city is safe.”
