The Senate Transportation Committee will hold two public hearings this week to examine the long-term impact to the state if the General Assembly fails to pass comprehensive transportation funding legislation, according to Committee Chairman Senator John Rafferty (R-Montgomery).
The first hearing will be held on Tuesday, August 20, at 1:00 p.m. in the Altoona City Council Chambers and Training Facility in Altoona. A second hearing will be held on Wednesday, August 21, at 9:30 a.m. at the A.W. Beattie Career Center in Allison Park.
Both hearings will feature testimony from local business owners and community leaders regarding the regional effects of continued transportation funding shortfalls.
