On June 23, Rep. Culver stood with more than 100 of her House colleagues, as well as the governor, at a press conference in Harrisburg to announce the House completion of the recommendations from the Task Force and Advisory Committee on Opioid Prescription Drug Proliferation.
On July 15, at the Bucknell SBDC’s Celebration of Small Business Event, Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver presented the “Innovation in New Product Development” award to CEO and Founder of Mangata LLC Mary Tiffin, and inventor of RunLites. Mary designed and patented a sleek glove with built-in high-powered LED lights that are perfect for runners, cyclists and other athletes who want to exercise outside before dawn or after dusk.
Rep. Culver joined several federal, state and local officials at the groundbreaking ceremony for the first contract of the $670 million Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation Project (CSVT) on May 20. This $156 million river bridge is the first of several construction improvements planned as part of the project. The CSVT will ultimately provide a 13-mile limited access highway connecting State Route 147 in Northumberland County, just south of the State Route 45 interchange, to U.S. Routes 11/15 in Snyder County just north of the Borough of Selinsgrove. When completed, the river bridge will be more than 4,500 feet long with a peak elevation of 180 feet. The bridge is expected to be completed in 2020, and the full project is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
