Corbett Plans To Unveil School Voucher Proposal Soon, Transportation Waits
HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) – Governor Corbett says he will soon have something to say on the subject of school voucher legislation, but he’s giving more indications transportation funding may not be addressed this fall as was expected.
Last week, his PennDOT secretary raised the possibility that because the economy is in turmoil, Governor Corbett may not make a transportation funding proposal this fall. Yesterday, the governor himself gave the same signals.
“We haven’t made any decisions yet. We’re still looking at everything. It’s a very difficult time, as you well know. The economy is having a difficult time. And there are a lot of options that we have to take a look at. We’ve got a lot on our plate right now.”
One other thing on Corbett’s plate of priorities is school tuition voucher legislation and education reform, and on that subject, the governor says he will have something to say in the next few weeks, though he wasn’t tipping his hand yesterday.
Corbett unveiled his proposals on natural gas drilling earlier this week (see related story).
