RI Truck Tolls Backlash Had “Little Impact” at Polls, but One Winner Eyes RhodeWorks Repeal

GoLocalProv.com reports, “In Rhode Island, it was suppose to [sic] be the year of realignment and rejection of the legislative leadership, but reality is the backlash for truck tolls seemed to have little impact.”

The Valley Breeze reports that Republican Thomas Paolino won his race for the 17th Senate District, adding that, “Paolino said his first move as senator will be looking further at the possibility of repealing the truck toll. Regarding the tolls, Paolino said he’ll look into ways to bring money into Rhode Island ‘without having to pass it onto the taxpayers of the state.’”
