One of the downsides of being a suburb of Philadelphia is that the 166th has to deal with air pollution. The American Lung Association gave our local area region (including Delaware County) a grade of “F” for ozone pollution. In order to clean the air in the 166th, we should place higher value on finding ways to to reduce traffic congestion. I would back efforts to review the traffic patterns on state highways in the 166th to improve flow and reduce the congestion that leads to air pollution. We should also increase awareness of alternatives like biking to work. Pennsylvania can work to improve our green energy ranking nationally by increasing our solar tax credit and property and sales tax exemptions to further encourage residents to install solar power and help us all breathe a little easier.
