Turnpike agency takes us for a ride

Matt Brouillette's commentary in today's Patriot-News.

In light of the recent tragedy in Minneapolis, the back-room deal of, by, and for the Turnpike with the help of Gov. Rendell and the General Assembly is even more troubling.

The Turnpike's plan is more than double the costs to taxpayers (relative to a lease of the Turnpike) and only provides less than half the amount of money needed for bridge, road and highway remediation (Gov. Rendell even conceded this point on CNBC last week). Go figure.

The Commonwealth Foundation will have more to say on this topic in the coming days...
