Senator Elder Vogel Discusses The Turnpike Situation With Matt Drzik On A.M. Beaver County

Back on September 14, it was reported that the PA Turnpike Commission had lost $104 million in revenue over the course of the last year, as 11 million rides through the toll areas generated no net revenue from its users. This drew the ire of the Senate Transportation Committee, who held hearings with the PTC over what the issues were that led to such a loss.

Senator Elder Vogel (R-47th) is one of two Senators representing Beaver County to serve on the STC, and he joined Matt Drzik on A.M. Beaver County to discuss his take on the Turnpike situation. Vogel spoke about the disappointment that he had with the PTC over the system that has been created, and he suggested a possible aid to help in generating revenue by adding a front license plate to vehicles in Pennsylvania.
