Now we know what's really holding up a transportation funding proposal:

"The goal is to get 103 votes in the House," Corbett said this week, as reported by Tony Romeo for KYW Newsradio.

A bill requires 102 votes to pass in the House. State lawmakers often say they need 102 House votes when they are vamping and either don't know or can't share the details of negotiations. Corbett himself has referred to needing 102 votes in the past. 

Vote count aside...

For the latest on those transportation funding deal negotiations, see my story from last week.

Capitolwire's Pete DeCoursey has the deep inside track on what's going on.
