Reader Poll: Transportation is Corbett’s Best Bet This Fall
The legislative highlight of this past summer was the budget fight in Harrisburg. Although a budget made it to Gov. Tom Corbett’s desk just in time for the beginning of the 2013-14 fiscal year, he went 0 for 3 on his major agenda items: liquor privatization, pension reform and transportation funding.
The state legislature will be back in Harrisburg next month to convene the fall session, giving Corbett another chance to push through his proposals. It will be the last legislative session before election year gets under way. As Gov. Corbett faces a tough fight for re-election, it could be his last chance.
A plurality of PoliticsPA readers, 41%, believe transportation funding is Corbett’s best bet this fall. 13% and 8% said liquor privatization and pension reform, respectively, have the best shot at passing. Meanwhile, 38% believe none of the items will pass.
Here are the full results:
