Several Democrat representatives from rural parts of Pennslyvania rallied outside of the capital steps this morning. They believe rural citizens are too often ignored in Harrisburg.

The Rural Bill of Rights includes:

  1. Access to Hospitals and Affordable Healthcare
  2. Access to Broadband and Cell Phone Service
  3. Access to Public Transportation
  4. Investment in Public Education
  5. Protection and Growth of Family Farms
  6. Access to Good Paying Jobs and Worker Protections
  7. Infrastructure Investments
  8. Support of Local Businesses
  9. Access to Clean Air, Water, and Land
  10. Upholding the PA and US Constitution.
