Transportation funding options

The Derrick in Clarion provides a good synopsis of Matt Brouillette’s presentation on Pennsylvania’s transportation funding situation.

What isn’t covered in the article was the discussion about the other options on the table for lawmakers to fill the $1B funding gap: 1) Reprioritize current spending; 2) Increase gas taxes by 15 cents or more per gallon (a penny raises ~ $63-65M); and/or 3) Increase vehicle fees — all of which are unlikely to be done in Harrisburg any time soon.
