ATA President Blasts Rhode Island Truck Toll Law

WPRI News (Providence) reports, “The head of the American Trucking Association[s] has lobbed a new grenade at Gov. Gina Raimondo’s truck-toll law, describing it as an unacceptable effort to force his industry to underwrite the cost of repairing Rhode Island bridges. “We don’t know if this program is legal, but it is bad policy and an extortion of our industry,” ATA President Chris Spear said in a statement after meeting with Rhode Island members last week.
