Sound Economic Principals and Values Drive Our Future
“Our economic infrastructure is the backbone of Chester County and the reason for our strong quality of life. Sound economic principals and values are not only what put food on our tables, they’re what drive our future. As state senator, I’ve worked to reduce wasteful spending, while promoting initiatives that drive job growth and invest in our future”
- Senator Dinniman helped bring about $542 million in transportation infrastructure improvements, including the widening of Route 202 from Route 30 to Great Valley and the building of a slip ramp from the Pa. Turnpike to the Great Valley Corporate Center. These improvements helped create hundreds of highway construction jobs and an estimated $1 billion in private sector construction. New private-sector construction resulting from an improved transportation infrastructure will result in an estimated 10,000 to 12,000 permanent new jobs.
- To improve public transportation, new train stations will be built in Parkesburg, Coatesville, Downingtown, Exton and Paoli, which will mean construction jobs as well as jobs within the new companies that will want to locate near a quicker and more viable public transportation system. Amtrak’s last increase in speed – from 80 mph to 110 mph – spiked the annual passenger count from 600,000 to 1.2 million.
- Pennsylvania cannot continue to levy one of the highest tax rates on corporations in the nation. Dinniman is working to lower Pennsylvania’s corporate net income tax rate from 9.99 percent to 7.5 percent.
- To support technical job training, Dinniman was able to arrange a $850,000 state grant to assist in the construction of the new Chester County Technical College High School in Downingtown. This facility, similar to the one in Jennersville and a joint venture with the Delaware County Community College, is preparing our students for technical jobs and allow them to graduate from high school with 16 college credits.
