Getting PA Approval For Tolling Of Roads

HARRISBURG – Rep. Matt Gabler of Clearfield & Elk Counties is preparing legislation that would change the process by which efforts to place tolls on Pennsylvania roads would be considered. He led efforts to keep tolls off of Interstate 80. Amid rumors out of Washington, D.C., where the Obama Administration is revisiting the tolling of federal highways, Gabler says his measure is needed. Gabler’s legislation, which is being circulated for co-sponsors, would require future tolling applications to first obtain specific approval from the state General Assembly before being considered at the federal level. He said his bill will ensure that the decision-making process is out of the hands of unelected government officials and make it the responsibility of those who answer to the voters of Pennsylvania.
