The Quad-State Conference of State Legislators from neighboring portions of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia met on Wednesday, September 11th for their annual brainstorming session at the Parlor House restaurant in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.
Among multiple issues discussed of parallel problems and proposed solutions at the state legislative level, there was major discussion and an action item approved regarding the traffic bottlenecks and public safety problems on Interstate 81.
The conference unanimously endorsed a resolution for the state legislators to jointly petition federal legislators and leadership on behalf of prioritizing federal funding to make improvements in I-81.
Pennsylvania State Senator Richard Alloway was chosen to coordinate these multi-state state legislator efforts.
This Quad State meeting was not conducted at taxpayer expense.
