(Lemoyne) -- The stance of top state House Republicans on the push to increase funding for highways, bridges and mass transit agencies is beginning to take shape.
House Republican Whip Stan Saylor of York County says passage of a bill to privatize the state liquor store system will be crucial to some members before they vote on legislation to raise wholesale fuel taxes.
Meanwhile, House Transportation Committee Chairman Dick Hess says he’s likely to support legislation that’s smaller than a $2.5 billion bill advancing in the Senate, but bigger than Governor Corbett’s $1.8 billion plan.
They spoke after appearing at a news conference with Corbett. The governor was using a new bridge across Interstate 83 in Lemoyne, Cumberland County, as the backdrop for his latest plea for more transportation funding.
