Republican House Members Respond To I-80 Toll Proposal

Republican Members of the State House submitted a letter to the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters regarding the application by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission to toll I-80. The letter is intended to convince the secretary not to toll Interstate 80. The letter cites multiple reasons why I-80 should not be tolled and claims there are other more profitable proposals that would fund infrastructure needs. Also, the letter adds that the Turnpike Commission did not accurately represent the economic impact the proposed toll would have on the I-80 corridor and in fact it would be much worse than the proposal says.
