House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Study to Compare PennDOT Ability and Practices With Other States and Countries
In the near future I plan on introducing a resolution directing the Legislative Budget and Finance Commission to conduct a study comparing the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's ability and practices in maintaining and completing infrastructure projects to other states and countries. Despite the highest liquid fuels tax in the country, highest tolled Turnpike in the world, and increasing driver fees, reliable and sustainable transportation maintenance and construction remains a systemic issue in this Commonwealth.

Pennsylvania needs to re-evaluate its outdated infrastructure maintenance plans and daily operating costs to maximize efficiency while also increasing quality.

Please join me in supporting this important initiative.
