About 70 transportation supporters attended the first in a series of regional events promoting Act 89 this week in Lancaster.

The attendees heard a panel discussion featuring PennDOT Deputy Secretary Jim Ritzman, Lancaster Chamber CEO Tom Baldrige, High Steel’s Steve Bussanmas, Good Transport Services President Danny Good, Jeff Glisson of South Central Transit Authority and Bob Bini of the Lancaster County Planning Commission.

The event was a collaboration between PHIA and the Chamber and was sponsored by Sable Commercial Realty. PHIA is in the process of organizing additional events later this summer and into the fall, in keeping with its mission to educate the public about transportation issues.

“We were thrilled with the turnout,” said PHIA Managing Director Jason Wagner, who was moderator for the discussion. “The panelists did a terrific job in articulating the benefits of the transportation funding measure, while also expressing concern about the continuing revenue diversions from the Motor License Fund to support State Police operations.”

Look for information about future regional events as details become available.
