Consensus is building that investing in transportation infrastructure will help pull Pennsylvania and the U.S. out of the coronavirus pandemic, APC’s Bob Latham said in this week’s edition of Pennsylvania Newsmakers.

In discussing the issue with Newsmakers host Terry Madonna, Latham noted that coronavirus recovery was among the topics he and others from across the country discussed in a conference call several days ago with U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.

Latham and Madonna also discussed the increasingly bleak outlook for transportation funding due to a variety of factors, most recently the pandemic, which has shut down businesses and the economy and kept people sheltering in their homes.
