PA House GOP Leader Sets Transportation Vote Date

The leader of the Republican majority in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives says the chamber will take up transportation infrastructure funding legislation in two weeks.
Majority Leader Mike Turzai told reporters Wednesday that he agreed to a two-week delay before holding votes to give Governor Tom Corbett time to work on a deal. The plan is to vote on a $2.5-billion-a-year bill that passed the Senate in early June, and possibly other proposals, after the House returns October 15th.
Turzai says House members want to vote on a Senate-passed $2.5-billion-a-year proposal for highways, bridges and mass transit. It's unclear whether that bill, or any large transportation funding bill, can pass the House, where many Republicans oppose raising taxes or fees.
