New 2017-18 Session Now Underway with Swearing-In Day

On Tuesday, Jan. 3, my colleagues and I in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives took the oath of office and were sworn in during a ceremony in the chamber of the House. Pictured with me (from left) are Rep. Kurt Masser and Rep. Fred Keller. Each of us was sworn in for our fourth terms. I thank all of you for the privilege to represent you in the state House. Twenty-three first-term members were also sworn in on Tuesday.

Also on swearing-in day, the House unanimously selected Rep. Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) as speaker of the House for the second consecutive session. The day also included certification of election results, election of the House parliamentarian and adoption of rules that will govern the chamber. You can also find out more as the session goes along at Facebook.com/RepCulver and LyndaCulver.com.

Additionally, I am pictured here with House Majority Whip Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), who recently acknowledged my third term of dedicated service to the House of Representatives, as evidenced by not missing a single day of legislative session. I take my responsibility to the people of the 108th District very seriously, and it is an honor to represent all of you in Harrisburg.

511PAConnect Seeks to Keep Stranded Motorists Safe, Informed

A new service called 511PAConnect has been launched to provide updates to motorists in the event of a long-term road closure due to accidents on the Pennsylvania Turnpike or other major state roadways. The service will be activated when personnel from the PA Turnpike and PennDOT identify a potential long-term closure, with the system being used only for emergencies that will last for a sustained period. The system will only work in areas with cell phone service.

Motorists who receive the alert will have the option of registering for automatic text messages or phone call updates, along with follow-up notifications from turnpike and PennDOT staff monitoring the closure. Once the incident is resolved, motorists who registered for the alerts will automatically be unsubscribed and all personal data will be scrubbed from the system.

PennDOT and the Turnpike Commission offer a variety of tools to keep travelers informed during all levels of incidents -- including the 511PA smartphone app, a phone number, online sources and social media platforms -- but 511PAConnect is the first initiative of its kind to link directly to a targeted group of travelers who are being impacted by, or who are approaching, a large-scale emergency.
