    In shivering temperatures, Corbett appeared Monday morning before dozens of local and state officials at a ceremony in the parking lot of a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Spring Mills, along busy state Route 322, just outside State College
    The Republican governor praised lawmakers for last week's bipartisan vote to approve the measure. He said there is ``barely a spot in Pennsylvania'' that will not benefit from the additional money that will be generated by higher gas taxes and motorist fees.
    The governor and his entourage were flying to similar bill-signing events in the Philadelphia suburbs and Pittsburgh later in the day.
