Several State Reps. Eager to Address Transportation Funding

A Transportation Funding Bill will likely get another go around in the fall. The latest proposal to eliminate the cap on the State’s wholesale gas tax and raise other revenue couldn’t get passed prior to the budget approval on June 30th. Some of the money would help fund the Septa, and Montco Republican State Rep. Mike Vereb says that’s not real popular everywhere in Pennsylvania.

“We see Septa as an absolute necessity and necessary part of our economy and necessary part of our infrastructure, but folks across this state look at Septa as part of the welfare system, it’s awful.”

Fellow local State Rep. Kate Harper says the Transportation Funding Vote will not get easier in the fall.

“The closer we get to an election year and 2014 is an election year that my colleagues won’t have, quite frankly to do what we need to do.”

Harper says he’s committed to getting more money to repair
Highways and bridges and fund public transit. Montco state Rep. Matt Bradford blames the Governor for the transportation problems.

“He’s chasing tea party votes, before you know it he goes out and slashes mass transit by nearly a half. Our R-5 our Septa Regional Rail Line , desperately need capital improvements.”

State Rep. Bob Godshall has classified transportation funding as a top priority for lawmakers in the fall. He says the road and bridges throughout the state are falling apart.
