Source Says Gov. Corbett’s Agenda Items May Fall Again
There’s hope in Republican circles that the Governor’s three major agenda items that fell short at the end of the legislative session will see new life in the fall, but Penn Live’s John Micek says, there’s a stark reality facing Governor Corbett in trying to address liquor privatization, pension reform and transportation funding.
“If You thought it was hard to do that in June, when an election is still an abstract thing, it’s going to be close to impossible in October or November as lawmakers are heading in to petitioning and primary season, no one is going to push for taxes then.”
The one agenda item that should be of paramount importance is transportation funding, according to State Rep. Bob
“We have more brings than any other state by far in the country, thousands of them and they’re going to be continued to be closed and there will be no money to fix them.”
