Corbett says he'll unveil transportation plan soon

Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett says he'll unveil his transportation funding plan before his budget address to the Legislature.

In an interview on WITF's "Smart Talk" radio show Friday, Corbett said he would make his recommendations public in January, prior to his annual address to lawmakers on Feb. 5.

Corbett did not disclose details, but said his proposals would embrace the concept of public-private partnerships on transportation-related projects. Corbett has been working with legislators in both houses on transportation funding issues in recent weeks.

The Republican governor said the 2013-14 budget will be as tight as ever. He says his administration anticipates growing public pension costs will consume nearly two-thirds of the projected growth in revenues - leaving less money for education and other programs.
