09 - 20 - 2013 Regional lawmakers speak to Central PA business owners
[DI] - A couple of state lawmakers joined forces this morning to tout two of the three issues which remain the focus of Gov. Tom Corbett. State Rep. Fred Keller and state Sen. Gene Yaw spoke at a Legislative Breakfast, hosted by the Greater Susquehanna Valley and Central PA Chambers of Commerce this morning in Lewisburg. Yaw commented on the need to pass a transportation funding bill, while Keller addressed the need for pension reform. Both said they realized that taxes and fees may go up to fund the fixes, but that it's necessary to avoid bigger problems in the future. The Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway project, touted by local lawmakers this spring as a cornerstone project of the governor's transportation package, could still happen with the passage of a funding package, Yaw said
