Just a day after falling short, a transportation funding bill passes in the house. Bucks County State Rep. Paul Clymer, who voted for the bill, says the 2.3 billion dollars in funding for roads, bridges and mass transit will not be fully carried out until the 5th year.
“So you’re not going to get the 2.3 billion dollars during the first year, neither the second year. You may get 800 million in the first year and 900 million in the second year, because these increases n the liquid fuel tax will come each year over a five year period.”
Clymer was a guest on the AM Edition this morning. He says many of his colleagues around the state mentioned how important funding is due to the deteriorating of the state’s highway system.
