But behind the scenes for many years, Pennsylvania Democrat leaders siphoned money away from a fund that was supposed to be doing just that. https://www.westernjournal.com/wake-pa-bridge-collapse-look-4-2-billion-road-repair-fund-found/ But according to a 2019 report from WHYY-TV, a Public Broadcasting Service station, Pennsylvania state leaders had dipped into a fund for roads and bridges to the tune of about $4.2 billion over the six previous years. However, the bridge that collapsed was not on the state’s list for funding, according to Fox Business. Even though the state had no plan to fix it, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman called the bridge a “vital artery” according to CNN." 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
