“I am very pleased that the New York State Thruway Authority is abandoning its proposed 45 percent commercial toll increase and will instead be considering a cost savings plan that includes no toll hike.
Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. is calling on the New York State Thruway Authority Board to reject a proposed 45 percent increase in commercial tolls.
“The New York State Thruway Authority’s proposed 45 percent increase in tolls is ill-timed, insensitive, and shows that they are completely out of touch with the challenges facing New York. The proposed increase should be rejected immediately,” said Senator Fuschillo (R-Merrick).
Senator Fuschillo, Chairman of the Senate’s Transportation Committee, stated that the Thruway Authority's proposed increased would have a devastating impact on New Yorkers and called on the Thruway Board to reject any idea of toll increases.
Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick), Chairman of the Senate’s Transportation Committee, today wrote to the Board of Directors of the New York State Thruway Authority strongly urging them to reject their proposal to increase tolls by 45 percent because it is “a step in the wrong direction for economic recovery in our state.”
