The State House voted Tuesday night to pass a $2 billion transportation funding bill.  The House voted 104 to 95 to pass the amended bill that would raise more than $2 billion to be spend on roadways and bridges across the state.  The money comes through a variety of taxes, tax cuts and fee changes.  The amended bill will now head to the State Senate for debate.  Meanwhile, Governor Corbett praised the House’s passage of the amendment and hopes that the bill will make it to his desk before the General Assembly breaks for the holiday season.
