RI Lawmaker Makes Case for Constitutional Amendment to Ban Tolling of Cars

Cranston Herald publishes an op-ed by State Rep. Blake A. Filippi, an independent from Block Island, who hammers the state’s truck tolling program, arguing that, “Although our current leaders promise passenger cars won’t be tolled, their commitment isn’t binding on future leaders. The only way to secure this promise is to constitutionally require that voters must approve any tolling expansion – similar to how we already must approve any gambling expansion.”
