(NECN) - It's time to go on the record with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber President and CEO Paul Guzzi dropped by NECN Business to talk about the continued battle between Mass. lawmakers and Governor Deval Patrick on a bill that would raise some taxes in order to close a transportation funding gap.

"We're going to get to yes - we're going to stumble to get to yes. First, because there's agreement that we have a need, whether it's the roads, the bridges, whether it's the MBTA, we have a need. Second, the total amount of dollars, Latoyia, there is fair amount of agreement, going from the $500 million up to the $800 million that the governor was lobbying for. Here's the issue: The mechanism for funding. The business community quite concerned about a sales tax on computer software," Guzzi says.

Guzzi also weighs in on the U.S. Senate passing comprehensive immigration reform, the Supreme Court striking down DOMA and a special guest at Thursday's Chamber forum.
