|Subject:||Senator Stewart J. Greenleaf Memorial Interchange|
|A lifelong resident of Upper Moreland Township, Senator Stewart J. Greenleaf was first elected to a seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for the 152nd District in 1976. In 1978, he was first elected to the Pennsylvania Senate for the 12th District and ultimately served for 10 terms over the next 40 years until his retirement in 2018.
Labeled a “Giant of the Legislature,” Senator Greenleaf sponsored 161 bills that were signed into law. His most significant impact on public policy in Pennsylvania emanated from his long-time chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he sponsored provisions to allow child victims to testify via closed-circuit television, Pennsylvania’s Clean Indoor Air Act, and Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law.
In recognition of his years of public service, I will be introducing legislation to designate Exit 343, also known as the Willow Grove Interchange, on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Upper Moreland Township, Montgomery County, as the Senator Stewart J. Greenleaf Memorial Interchange. Senator Greenleaf’s significant legislative impact, as well as his work, integrity, and devotion to duty make this honor appropriate.
Please join me in this effort to honor and commemorate the public service of this extraordinary member of my community.
Introduced as HB1227
