Just Plain "Joe" Scarnati For Governor In 2010

Scarnati Asks Rendell to Not
Re-Submit Tolling Application

Lt. Governor Joe Scarnati has written a letter to Governor Ed Rendell asking that he urge the turnpike commission to not re-submit their application to impose tolls on Interstate 80.

He says asking people who live and work along the I-80 corridor to bear the brunt of the financial burden to repair decaying roads and bridges is not the answer to the state's transportation funding problem.

Scarnati added that President-elect Barack Obama has indicated he's interested in providing infrastructure funding to states and Pennsylvania should work with the new administration to make sure any new federal funding is directed toward projects in the commonwealth.

Rendell hasn't commented yet.

Maybe Scarnati should ask "fast eddie" what happened to the Federal Tax money paid in by trucking compainies via the Form 2290!

Heavy Highway Use Tax is an annual fee based on the weight of the truck, for road usage and repairs!

Where was the money used if not on the decaying I-80?

It was probably used to repair all of the bridges....
