PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – All weekend the House ironed out the details included in Gov, Tom Corbett’s proposed transportation package and a vote could be in the very near future.
The bill includes new funding for roads, bridges, mass transit and bike trails, but neither the Democrats or Republicans have been able to come to an agreement. The Republicans are looking for less of a burden on taxpayers and are against raising taxes. The Democrats want to tax the people more to pay for the public transportation.
The House members spent the weekend debating on the $2.2 to $2.4 billion dollar package. Now, they will be in Harrisburg on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but after that, they won’t return to the Capitol until Nov. 12.
