From Jon Schmitz on the homepage:

Gov. Tom Corbett will wait until his Feb. 5. budget speech to unveil his proposals for increasing funding for roads, bridgse and public transit in Pennsylvania.

Spokeswoman Kelli Roberts confirmed reports that Mr. Corbett will wait until the budget speech rather than announce his plans today.

The governor is expected, among other things, to seek removal of the cap on the wholesale gasoline tax, called the Oil Company Franchise Tax. The tax, which is paid by gasoline suppliers, currently applies to only the first $1.25 per gallon of the wholesale price.
