New Deal Could Stop Port Authority Cuts

KDKA reports that a new deal is in the works that could stop Port Authority cuts this fall.

A deal is in the works to avoid cuts to Port Authority service this fall, according to a report by KDKA.

According to the report, negotiations between state, county and union officials are underway to avoid a one-third cut in service on Sept. 2.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald told KDKA that if the union, management, and county can come up with about $30 million, Gov. Tom Corbett will match that amount and restore service.

This would be great but wouldn't it be like tossing $$$$ on a fire? PAT has had numerous bailouts and STILL needs bailed out! When will it end?
