Pennsylvania Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch and others involved in negotiations over a transportation bill say they're encouraged by negotiations over the past couple weeks, even though no deal has been struck.
Schoch on Thursday called talks with Democrats and Republicans in the state House "the correct way to find a solution."
Republican Leader Mike Turzai recently delayed a House vote on a Senate-passed, $2.5-billion-a-year package to give the administration more time to seek a deal.
The issues include the total amount of the package, how much will go to mass transit, where the money will come from and potential changes in the state's prevailing wage law on public construction projects.
House Democratic spokesman Brett Marcy says "staff discussions have been productive."
