State Senator Larry Farnese (D-Phila.) will co-chair an online Senate Democratic Policy Committee hearing this Thursday to learn more about the impact of unsafe construction methods by untrained and inexperienced developers.

“Philadelphia’s iconic neighborhoods are seeing a redevelopment boom that has stirred mixed feelings among long-time residents,” Farnese said. “In addition to worries about gentrification, neighbors are facing off with rogue contractors, often unlicensed and unconcerned about the quality of work.  Are existing regulations enough?”

Sen Lisa Boscola (D-Lehigh/Northampton) will chair the hearing, which is scheduled for this Thursday, May 7 at 11 a.m. and will be livestreamed at and the PA Senate Democratic Caucus facebook page.
