On Dec. 4, Pennsylvania Secretary of Transportation Barry Schoch visited a Lehigh Valley Business sister publication, the Central Penn Business Journal in Harrisburg, to talk about the recently passed transportation funding bill.

The new law is expected to raise billions of dollars to improve and repair the state's roads and bridges by uncapping the limit on the wholesale fuel tax in Pennsylvania. Some opponents, though, fear the plan will raise gasoline and diesel prices at the pump by more than 20 cents per gallon.

On Nov. 25, Gov. Tom Corbett signed the comprehensive transportation bill that invests an additional $2.3 billion to $2.4 billion in roads, bridges and mass transit by the fifth year of the plan.

Schoch's interview was recorded by FGV Media, another sister company of Lehigh Valley Business.
