Excerpt from Fuel Taxes Increased to Solve Transportation Funding Shortfall -

After years of effort by multiple administrations and after overcoming difficult political hurdles in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, the Commonwealth has finally addressed its steadily worsening transportation funding problem. Seemingly dead after falling one vote short on November 18th, the House reversed itself on a bipartisan vote of 104-95 on November 19th, in support of increased funding. On November 21st the General Assembly sent HB 1060 to Governor Corbett and on November 25th he signed it into law as Act 89 of 2013.
