Restore Pennsylvania initiative introduced with bipartisan support
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WENY) -- Governor Wolf's multi-billion-dollar plan to Restore Pennsylvania is moving forward.
The legislation was introduced in the House and Senate yesterday, and has strong bipartisan support.
The $4.5 billion infrastructure plan would be funded by a tax on natural gas extraction.
The money would then be spent over a four-year period on a number of projects, like bringing broadband to rural communities, new flood protections, and fighting blight.
Wolf says it's the only plan "that can actually address the needs in every community."
The measure now moves to committee action for debate.
