Pennsylvania Signs Privatization Bill
July 9, 2012
The legislation gives Pennsylvania the ability to lease large-scale transportation assets to the private sector as a mechanism for raising funds for expansion and repair projects. Generally, P3 entities generate a return through user fees or tolling.
The law allows any state or local government entity to enter into a P3, subject to approval by a Public-Private Transportation Partnerships Board (PPTB Board). The legislature can block an approval by the PPTB Board if it acts within 20 calendar days or 9 legislative days.
Every transport facility in the state is open for a P3, except the Mainline of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, unless that is specifically permitted by new legislation.
