Senate Transportation Chair Langerholc Responds to Commonwealth Court Opinion

HARRISBURG – Senate Transportation Committee Chair Sen. Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35) today issued the following statement in response to the Commonwealth Court upholding the constitutionality of Act 40 of 2023:

“Today’s decision validates our position from the inception of this legislation. This legislation is unequivocally constitutional, and any statement to the contrary is inaccurate as is evidenced by today’s decision from the Commonwealth Court. Today is a win for law enforcement, riders of SEPTA and employees of SEPTA.  Act 40 passed the General Assembly with broad bipartisan support and was signed by Gov. Josh Shapiro to provide additional resources to fight crime occurring on the SEPTA system.  I look forward to Attorney General Michelle Henry’s appointment of a Special Prosecutor now that these senseless roadblocks have been properly dealt with.”
