HARRISBURG – State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) landed a spot on the 2022 Pennsylvania Agriculture Power 100 for his legislative accomplishments focused on farmers and land conservation.
“Agriculture is intrinsic to Pennsylvania’s economy and culture and I’m committed to prioritizing policies that grow the industry and preserve its legacy,” Yaw said. “I’m honored to be recognized for these efforts and will continue to do my part to support Pennsylvania farmers.”
City&State Pennsylvania published the list to highlight “the public officials, farmers, business executives, association heads, labor leaders, policymakers and others who shape the state’s agricultural landscape.”
Yaw recently championed passage of Pennsylvania’s Clean Streams Fund, a program designed to remediate streams damaged by decades of non-point source pollution, including agricultural runoff, abandoned mine drainage and stormwater management in developed areas.
He also sponsored Act 83 of 2022 to mandate more responsible fertilizer use to improve water quality, diminish the growth of harmful algae that suffocates aquatic life and reduce water treatment costs for residents.
