Regarding your front-page article "Senator's Plan Nets $2.5B for Pa. Roads: Average Driver Would Pay $160 More a Year" (April 16): The latest tax-and-spend proposal by our state government, called Senate Bill 1, introduced by Sen. John Rafferty, is apparently another attempt to rip off Pennsylvanians disguised as a way to fix our broken roads and bridges.
I, as one concerned state resident, would like to know what has happened to all the money raised in previous years that is apparently still coming in to the state coffers for the same purposes. That money was no one-time taking by the state. So where is it, what is it being used for and how much is still being raised for the same stated purpose as this new effort by our leaders?
The utter disregard for the taxpayer is disgusting.
