Turnpike Lease?? I-80 Tolls??

WESB News: 07/08/08 - Turnpike Lease Plans in Limbo

Plans to lease the Turnpike are in limbo with the Chairman of the House Transportation Committee, Joe Markosek, saying he has no intention on acting on the bill.

But, Governor Ed Rendell doesn't think Markosek's stance necessarily kills the bill. Rendell and others think lawmakers must keep the lease on the table, until the federal government rules on PA's application to toll I-80.

Matt Brouillette of the Commonwealth Foundation calls the plan to let the lease issue languish in committee a "foolish policy:" Supporters say a Turnpike lease would nix the need for I-80 tolls, but Markosek claims the $12.8-billion bid for the turnpike just isn't enough.

Why don't the government officials
lease out thier grandmothers. They will do anything for money and
are giving our country away piece by piece. Maybe if they spent the taypayers dollars more appropriately they would't have to come up with these hairbrain ideas.
