PA Lawmakers Urged to Repeal Turnpike’s $450 Million in Payments to PennDOT for Transit

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette publishes a lengthy letter by Jim Mall, chairman of the Construction Legislative Council of Western Pennsylvania, who writes that lawmakers need to enact new legislation ending mandatory PA Turnpike payments of $450 million a year to PennDOT to fund mass transit. Mall cites the recent federal court case in which the American Trucking Associations successfully challenged the New York Thruway “practice of using toll revenues to support canal maintenance.”
