Several Adams County bridges have been repaired or replaced in the past few years – our taxes at work. Specifically, the taxes derived from every gallon of fuel we purchase for our vehicles. Thank you, Gov. Tom Corbett, a chief executive so ill-regarded by his fellow Pennsylvanians that they granted him membership in the state’s very exclusive One-Term Governor club. He presided over a three-step gasoline tax increase in 2013 that, by 2016 – had made the Commonwealth’s levy the highest in the nation.
Corbett said the billions of dollars the increase would gain would pay for bridge, highway and other transportation improvements.
