ABOUT KTFCThe Keystone Transportation Funding Coalition is a diverse group of transportation advocates that came together in support of one simple goal: to secure a comprehensive, long-term, multimodal solution to Pennsylvania’s transportation funding needs. Its founder is George Wolff, longtime Harrisburg lobbyist who has worked for decades on various transportation issues.
Membership & Support
Coalition members include the highway construction industry, public transportation agencies, labor unions, farm organizations, AARP, bicycle and pedestrian advocates, land-use advocates, AAA, air and seaport organizations, associations representing local governments, chambers of commerce, travel and tourism organizations, environmental advocates, health care organizations, freight and passenger rail organizations and the trucking industry.
Under the auspices of the Coalition, transportation advocates undertook vigorous, continuing outreach efforts that included elected officials, community leaders, business people and the public at large. In November 2013, after nearly eight years of effort, the Coalition achieved its mission upon passage of Act 89, a bipartisan measure that is being phased in over five years.
The Coalition has remained active. Its members were determined to support legislators who voted for Act 89, and not a single incumbent who voted for the act lost his or her seat as a result of that vote. In recent months, members have subsequently turned their attention toward Washington in an effort to encourage federal lawmakers to do their part.
