🚧 Exciting News! 🚧

I am thrilled to announce a major step forward in reopening Route 611 in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area! After extensive discussions, PennDOT and the National Park Service have agreed on a temporary solution to install a rockfall barrier, which will allow traffic to flow through part of the affected area. 🛣️

“This is a critical step in restoring accessibility and alleviating the hardships faced by our residents and businesses. While this is a temporary fix, it is an important move toward a permanent resolution.”

⚠️INSIGHTS TO THE ONGOING DISUCUSSIONS⚠️

The devastation this extended closure has had on our community cannot be overstated. To put it simply, there is a multitude of government agencies involved with competing interests, which has severely stagnated a path forward. I wish I could snap my fingers and individually make this happen. I have been extremely vocal and active in pushing each entity in being a team player and thinking of the greater good and needs of our community. I do believe the agencies are close to a creative solution to alleviate this closure.

Today marks a significant step forward in our efforts to support the many Pennsylvania families affected by Alzheimer’s Diseases and Related Disorders. 💜 After two years of dedicated work, my bill, Senate Bill 840, passed the Senate.

This bill is in response to the countless constituents who have contacted my office, grappling with the heart-wrenching reality of Alzheimer’s. Just as these families have shown their steadfast dedication to their loved ones, it is time for our state to demonstrate the same level of commitment.

The bill now moves to the House of Representatives for consideration.

Meet Rosemary Brown

Northeast Pennsylvania has been my home since I was five; my husband, Joe and I, have raised our three children here and are grateful to live in the beautiful Pocono Mountains to enjoy the unique opportunities this portion of our state has to offer.

The foundation of my life has always been centered around God, my family, and doing my best each day. While I never promise perfection, I do promise hard work and care for our community with an extremely grateful spirit. This is how I truly try to live my life, but it also makes me a better public servant for you.
