Transportation Bill in Place

Transportation Bill in Place

Pennsylvania finally has a Transportation Bill in place.
HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania finally has a Transportation Bill in place.

It took some bouncing back and forth between the House and Senate and there are still some people unhappy with the bill.

It provides 1.3 billion dollars for state roads and bridges. It's going to be phased in over the next five years. Transportation officials say in that fifth year the average driver will pay about $2.50 more per week, or about $130 a year.

Democratic Representative Scott Conklin thinks the money should come from someone other than the taxpayer. But the Governor says history will show this is the right move.

Governor Tom Corbett will likely sign the bill into law next week.
