GOP, ATA Call for Repeal of RI Truck Tolling Law

Associated Press reports, “Republicans and the American Trucking Association[s] are calling on Rhode Island leaders to repeal a law passed last year that allows the state to install highway tolls on big-rig trucks. House Minority Leader Patricia Morgan held a news conference Tuesday [May 23] with fellow Republican legislators and trucker advocates calling for repeal of the toll-financed plan to repair the state’s bridges. They say they’ve studied how the tolls would work and it doesn’t add up.”
