John Micek says transportation funding isn’t getting done this fall:
And despite a push from lawmakers to implement the findings of the administration’s transportation advisory council, Corbett sent a clear signal that that’s an issue for 2013. Ditto for privatizing the liquor stores.
“Transportation, that will be next year,” he said. “I know [House Majority Leader Mike] Turzai would still like the LCB [sold], we’ve been talking to him. If we can get it done this year, that’ll be great. If not, we’ll just keep on working.”
If there’s a silver lining, it’s that maybe there will be more Democrats after January and the compromise bill will end up being a little more left-wing than what we would’ve gotten with the current Republican-dominated legislature.
