This is a pretty thinly veiled attempt to keep more money in Pennsylvania, and also to force SEPTA
to maintain much more track with the same budget.
I know about ACT 44, the transportation funding program that uses PA Turnpike funds to subsidize transit, but
SEPTA lacks a dedicating funding source, like the MTA regional tax in NY for the metropolitan region. Perhaps a
small gas tax in the SEPTA region (5-10 cents per gallon) seems modest. And would Lancaster County have
interest in being a member of SEPTA? This reminds much like of the Rockland/Orange counties' debate of
whether to withdraw from MTA.
