Argall’s latest TV program explores challenges facing PA cities

HARRISBURG – The challenges facing Pennsylvania cities are featured in the latest edition of Senator David G. Argall’s (R-29) monthly television program.

The show features testimony from a recent Senate Urban Affairs and Housing Committee hearing that focused on problems related to population loss and blight. The hearing focused on a recent report by the Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development at Wilkes University that detailed the effects of population changes in large and small cities throughout the state.

“There are no easy answers to many of the problems facing our cities. One of the messages that we hear from officials throughout the state is that solutions designed to help Philadelphia or Pittsburgh won’t necessarily help Pottsville or Reading,” Argall said. “The report from Wilkes University helped to highlight the importance of giving cities a wide range of options to deal with urban flight and decay.”
