“Under the agreement, the commission will lease I-80 from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and generate $116 billion over 50 years for highway and mass transit projects throughout the state.”

The plan calls for all-toll revenue to be reinvested back into the highway. A narrator on a video presented before the question period promised that ''not one dime of I-80 tolls will be used for mass transit.''

It will generate $116 billion dollars for highway and mass transit but not one dime of I 80 tolls will be used for mass transit. Then where does the $116 billion come from? Do they think we are that stupid?

Funny, by the time they are done building all the toll booths no one will be able to afford to drive anymore because of expensive and scare oil(PEAK OIL). What great leaders we have in our country.
