Pa Transportation bill ready for Governor’s signature

11.22.13 | Bob Price

The Pennsylvania House has given the last surge of gas needed to propel a major transportation bill to Gov. Tom Corbett's desk.  The measure represents the first major increase in transportation funding in Pennsylvania since the gas tax was raised 17 years ago.  This bill will raise the gas tax nearly 30 cents a gallon over 5 years to pay for thousands of miles of road repair and fix hundreds of dilapidated bridges.
