Rendell offers toll parameters for Turnpike Lease

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review article covers Governor Rendell’s statements on a potential lease, with the headline that “Turnpike fare increases will be regulated”. The idea that a Turnpike lease would result in comparable or lower tolls than Act 44 should be common knowledge, since we have repeated that constantly.

But either because of Governor Rendell’s shyness about talking lease parameters publicly, or because the Turnpike Commission’s lobbying efforts, that message isn’t getting across.
