House Votes in Favor of Transportation Bill
HARRISBURG — The state house has voted in favor of a multi-billion dollar transportation bill that should help rebuild the commonwealth’s bridges and roads.
The vote means the $2.4 billion bill will become law as soon as Governor Tom Corbett signs it, but comes at a price to drivers in the keystone state.
It calls for fee hikes on things such as driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations.
Also, within five years drivers will likely pay 28 cents more in taxes at the pump for gasoline.
Governor Corbett has been pushing hard for the passage of the bill.
Governor Corbett said he will sign the transportation bill into law next week.
