BENEZETTE – During his visit to Elk County on Thursday, Governor Tom Corbett emphasized the importance of public-private partnerships within the state's tourism industry, specifically relating to state parks, visitors centers and more.
"I think it's a wave of the future of the industry not just in Pennsylvania, but around the country, where we can get more bang for our buck if we invoke the private community," Corbett said.
He added by growing in such partnerships allows everyone to get a better product rather than just relying upon state tax dollars.
