I found an article on Pennlive dot com "Pennsylvania House committee hears concerns about price of gas at transportation funding hearing"

Highlights:

"That bill, Senate Bill 1, would uncap a key tax on wholesale fuel purchases by January 1, 2015, getting more funds to the state more quickly but also potentially adding a net 25 cents per gallon to fuel costs (based on current prices) in 18 months."

"The Senate bill would also force motorists to pay $50.50 for a driver's license that would be valid for six years, instead of the $29.50 they pay now for one that lasts four years; and they would pay $104 for a two-year vehicle registration, instead of $36 annually."

There are 7 comments on the article; the last one sums this up quite succinctly.
