Government Spending

Infrastructure Expenses Loom for PA

The state has been spending on everything but core responsibilities


Republicans and Democrats in the Pennsylvania statehouse seem to agree on at least one thing: Not another construction season can go by without addressing the state's aged infrastructure.

But this unity may splinter when Gov. Tom Corbett reveals his plan early next year, a plan where the main components are still unknown.

Senate Democrats were the latest group of legislators to feed the anticipation, laying out their priorities for long-term transportation needs at a Wednesday morning press conference. The lawmakers said they're hoping to see a long-term plan that addresses highways, bridges, mass transit and rail.
