Subject: Garnishing PA Lottery Winnings & State Tax Refund to Collect Unpaid Turnpike Tolls
Soon I will introduce legislation targeting the ongoing issue of unpaid turnpike tolls, by garnishing PA lottery winnings and state tax refunds of offenders with unpaid tolls.

From April 2021 to March 2022, the Turnpike reported a projected total of $155 million in unpaid tolls. That is up 49% from the previous year.

Unfortunately, the law-abiding turnpike users are being punished by this loss in toll revenue, with continued toll increases year after year. It is imperative we step up enforcement and give the turnpike tools to go after these repeated offenders. My bill will do just that.

I encourage my colleagues to join me in support of this bill.

Introduced as SB1350
