PA Lawmaker Pushes for Tax Credits for Toll Payers

Bucks County Courier Times reports, “State Rep. and Democratic congressional candidate Steve Santarsiero is pushing state legislation [HB 1298] that would lighten the financial impact a little of rapidly rising tolls on Pennsylvania’s highways and bridges.” The report adds, “The proposed legislation would offer a state income tax credit for 50 percent of tolls paid on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and bridges operated under the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission and the Delaware River Port Authority of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Only those with E-ZPass would be eligible. . . .”
