Sen. Pat Toomey has a full agenda in Lower Merion Township this morning.
He’s due there at 11:45 to announce two things: street sign legislation and a constituent service.
Toomey will introduce the Stopping Intrusive Government Now Act to, “eliminate the federal government’s ability to issue a mandatory minimum reflectivity standard for street signs and forever protect municipalities’ unique street signs.”
The legislation stems from Lower Merion’s fight against a requirement for municipalities to replace street signs to conform to new federal standards. Residents worked to keep their historic cast-iron signs instead.
Toomey has something else up his sleeve: his Had Enough? constituent service to reduce government waste. He wants Pennsylvanians to report instances of waste, red tape and over-regulation.
