|Subject:||Study the Consolidation of Interstate Operations|
|In the near future, we intend to introduce a resolution directing the Joint State Government Commission to study the consolidation of interstate operations of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (Turnpike).
Currently, both Commonwealth agencies are responsible for the planning, the construction and the maintenance of interstate highways and freeways under the respective jurisdiction of PennDOT or the Turnpike. This resolution will direct the Joint State Government Commission to examine the challenges and opportunities of consolidating the interstate operations of PennDOT and the Turnpike in a final report with findings of fact, recommendations and any proposed legislative remedies.
Please join us in co-sponsoring this resolution to ensure the interstate operations in this Commonwealth are managed efficiently and effectively.
If you have any questions, please contact Nolan Ritchie, Senator Rafferty’s Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nathan Akers, Senator Hutchinson’s Office, at email@example.com.
