Governor Tom Corbett’s three agenda items failed to gain traction at the end of the legislative session, leaving liquor privatization, pension reform and transportation funding undone.
“I’ve been a lawyer and prosecutor. You’re going have times when you get everything you want and times when you don’t get everything you want, but I would be mad if we had no ability go forward.”
Corbett is counting on movement on his three agenda items when the legislature is back in session after the summer.
”We got some great wins. We got some great historic votes that have set the foundation to come back in the fall. It gives us the summer to go out and work the votes very hard and win in the fall.”
One of the strongest advocates for liquor privatization, Bucks County State Senator Chuck Mcllhinney believes a bill can be passed in the fall. Meanwhile, longtime State Rep. Bob Godshall feels transportation funding should be the main goal, due to poor roads and unsafe bridges.
