Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Bellefonte), Senate Majority Leader Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland), and Senate Transportation Committee Chair Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35) issued the following statement today following a Commonwealth Court ruling that blocks the Wolf Administration from moving forward with its bridge tolling plan:

“Today’s ruling is a victory for millions of Pennsylvania motorists who Governor Wolf’s bridge tolling scheme would have impacted. The new tolls would have taken more money out of the pockets of drivers at a time when families can least afford new financial burdens without being vetted or approved by the people’s elected representatives.”

“For years, the Wolf Administration has repeatedly tried to exceed its authority and ignore the separation of powers in state government. We are thankful the Commonwealth Court prevented this plan from being implemented.”

“Government functions best when all parties are involved in negotiating a final product together. We remain ready and willing to engage with Governor Wolf, our colleagues in the House, and all other stakeholders to discuss how we should fund our road and bridge projects moving forward.”
