Investing in Pennsylvania and Creating Jobs

With the support of a diverse coalition of business groups, senior advocates, agriculture advocates, and the AAA, Governor Tom Corbett advocated today for his common sense plan for investing in our transportation infrastructure. Here are the five things you need to know:

1.   Recognizing the needs of Pennsylvanians, the Governor’s plan proposes reducing the flat tax on gasoline at the pump by 17%. 

2.   The Governor’s plan will help to create 50,000 jobs in the industry, and will encourage investments in new construction equipment that will generate manufacturing jobs.

3.   The Governor’s plan makes an additional $1.8 billion available for transportation investments, providing stable funding for the future of the system.

4.   The Governor’s plan addresses a public safety concern with more than 31,000 buses carry 1.5 million children to school on our roads and bridges each day.

5.   The Governor’s plan protects economic growth throughout Pennsylvania by ensuring that the half a trillion dollars in goods that annually travel through the state will have a smooth ride.
