Nussbaum also reports that the Senate GOP might not wait for legislation – “Senate Republicans are said to be preparing a nonbinding resolution to forbid a lease of the turnpike”.
While Governor Rendell has already said that a Turnpike lease approval won’t happen until the fall, are Senate Republicans ready to close the door already? With no debate and no hearings on the agreement? Didn’t they learn their lesson after screwing up with Act 44?
They should also listen to the latest episode of TheBOX, discussing the lease, and attend our luncheon on Tuesday. (Unlike the Turnpike Commission, we won’t be giving them filet mignon, but – also unlike the Turnpike Commission – we will offer accurate information).
UPDATE: The bill is available here.
