During his annual address to the House on Wednesday, Robert DeLeo said Massachusetts lawmakers will address issues with public transportation that have come up this winter.
The budget includes $500 million in new taxes, including increases in the gasoline and cigarette taxes, approved earlier by the Legislature as part of a transportation finance plan.
The Massachusetts House of Representatives and Senate have approved a compromise $30.6 billion state budget for 2012. Senators voted 33-4 to approve the spending plan on Friday. That vote followed a 150-2 House vote.
