GOP Rep angry at SEPTA

Pennsylvania House majority whip Stan Saylor (R – York) has been voicing his discontent with SEPTA regarding their decision to use diesel-electric hybrids instead of compressed natural gas (CNG) powered buses.

It seems like Rep Saylor is trying his hardest to get another customer for Marcellus Shale natural gas while stating that he will make it especially hard on SEPTA when if PA gets around to a transportation bill.  Here is his direct quote:

“I tell you, if we ever do a transportation bill, I will do everything I can to stop SEPTA from getting any more money until they change their management practices.”

SEPTA should continue to do what it needs to do in order to make updates to their fleet, reduce its dependence on natural resources and keep to their budget. 

Remember – we want City Hall Station renovated!!
