Act 44 Plan

The General Assembly of Pennsylvania approved Act 44 in July 2007 that was subsequently amended by Act 89 in November 2013. Act 44 expanded the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s (“Commission”) mandate from one focused entirely on constructing, operating and improving the Pennsylvania Turnpike to one that also provides annual funding contributions for broader Commonwealth transportation needs. Since Act 44’s passage the Commission has fully met its obligations by providing $5.875 Billion through October 2017 through payments under a Lease and Funding Agreement as amended in April 2014 with PennDOT.

Act 89 substantially altered the Commission’s funding obligations to PennDOT. While the Commission’s payment obligation remains at $450 million annually through Fiscal Year 2022, none of the payments are dedicated to highways and bridges. Instead, all $450 million is allocated to support transit capital, operating, multi-modal and other non-highway programs. Beginning in Fiscal Year 2023, the annual payment obligations decreases to $50 million until the payment obligations end in 2057.
