Republicans who control the State House announced recently they are starting a legislative infrastructure task force to look for solutions. The group, chaired by Rep. Martina White, R-Philadelphia, will draw its membership from 10 lawmakers from across the state. APC’s Bob Latham will present an overview of transportation funding issues to the Task Force during its initial meeting this week.

“As employers and companies thriving in our economy look to expand, Pennsylvania is still missing out,” House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster, said in a statement. “Our infrastructure must exceed the needs of employers if we hope to attract the next generation of business leaders to Pennsylvania.”
