Congressman eyes transportation issues

April 25, 2012

Congressman Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-5)

On Wednesday, April 18, the U.S. House of Representatives passed another 90-day extension of surface transportation programs. House leaders plan to use the extension legislation as a vehicle to begin a conference committee with the U.S. Senate, which has already approved a two-year, $109 billion reauthorization bill.
The House measure extends federal-aid highway, safety, transit, and other programs funded by the Highway Trust Fund at Fiscal Year 2011 levels in lieu of a new, multiyear reauthorization.
Joined by U.S. Congressman Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-5) via teleconference at a North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission [NCPRPDC] board meeting, the two-term legislator shared his views on the state's transportation issues.
