We have received reports that a meeting was held today (Monday, November 30, 2020) with the governor and legislative leaders that will, for now, avoid a shutdown of PennDOT construction and design contracts.
Indications are that State Treasurer Joe Torsella is working with Budget Secretary Jen Swails to find monies to keep PennDOT operating. We hopeful that there will be more information about a short-term solution (through February 2021) as early as Tuesday, December 1.
There may be action required by the industry to support a longer-term solution. This will become clearer as things progress.
We will provide additional updates as necessary and during our next scheduled online membership update on Dec. 2. Go HERE to register for the only webinar update.
