STOP Launches Petition Against Toll Road Lease Proposal 27 January, 2007Posted by stoptaxing in Action Item, State.
STOP has come to the conclusion that we need to not only beware but oppose the leasing of RT. 1 and I-95. We are launching a citizen awareness effort to stop this proposal cold. It is the ultimate short term fix with long term consequences.
It is creating a monopoly with taxing authority. It has no free market mechanism and little government limitation of toll levels. This is mind boggling. The projected toll increases are staggering.
This proposal would surrender our rights over the money from these roadways for 75 or more years for a one time payment.
