As we turn the page toward the final month of the fiscal year, the Keystone Crossroads news team brings us a roundup story detailing five approaches to funding State Police operations in municipalities that do not have local police forces.

The Keystone Crossroads project is a cooperative venture among the Commonwealth’s public radio broadcasters that is aimed at in-depth coverage of important public issues, including infrastructure.

Also in recent days, Auditor General Eugene DePasquale announced that he would undertake an audit to determine whether the new revenue raised by Act 89 is being used appropriately.

These events spark hopes that we are getting closer to a solution to the diversion of revenue intended for highway projects and find a more suitable source for funding State Police.
