Governor Corbett Commends Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council for Urging PA House of Representatives to Move on Comprehensive Transportation Plan
 
Harrisburg − Governor Tom Corbett today issued the following statement in response to a recent letter to the state House of Representatives from Patrick B. Gillespie, the business manager of the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council – AFL-CIO.
 
The letter called for the House to support transportation funding. It also mentioned that his organization agrees to a change in the Prevailing Wage Law threshold from $25,000 to $100,000 for transportation projects only.
 
Corbett said:
 
"I thank Pat for his support, leadership and willingness to compromise on the issue of prevailing wage.
 
“A yes vote on transportation is a vote for safety, for jobs and for the very future of Pennsylvania.
 
“I urge House members to embrace this momentum in the true spirit of bipartisanship and bring a comprehensive transportation funding plan to my desk.
 
“Together we have the chance to bring about a real change for a better Pennsylvania.”
