Pennsylvania Auditor General Tim DeFoor says the turnpike’s debt is bigger than the entire state’s.
The findings were released on Wednesday as part of the AG’s once-every-four-year audit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
The report said the turnpike debt burden is on drivers.
Defoor said millions of dollars in tolls are going uncollected through the turnpike’s toll-by-plate system because of unreadable license plates and unpaid invoices.
The audit outlined a number of recommendations to the turnpike commission and the Pennsylvania legislature on how to address the problem.
