DePasquale reveals over $8.4 million was incorrectly reimbursed to school districts for transportation

On Wednesday afternoon, Auditor General Eugene DePasquale held a press conference to discuss his findings from an audit on Pennsylvania’s school district transportation reimbursements.

DePasquale explained that one third of the money spent by school districts for transportation is reimbursed by the state, while the remainder must be funded by local taxpayers. For this reason DePasquale stated it is critical that schools are receiving the correct amount of money, and he decided to audit schools regarding this money.

PA drivers to see speed cameras in certain work zones in as little as 120 days

Pennsylvania drivers who decide to speed in certain work zones will now have more consequences than just a guilty conscience.

As of October 19th, a bill that would provide a five-year trial period for PennDOT to place speed cameras in active work zones was signed by Governor Wolf.

Sen. David Argall (R-Schuylkill) and Sen. Judy Schwank (D-Berks) had been working on getting Senate Bill 172 passed for two years. The bill passed through the House this September by a vote of 176-19 and then through the Senate earlier this month with just one no vote.
