Capitol Report: tolling truckers in Rhode Island

Capitol Report

(WTNH) — Trucks and tolling is a hot topic here in Connecticut as lawmakers try to work out their new funding plan moving forward. But across the boarder in Rhode Island, there is a legal challenge about the Constitutionality of further fees on traveling truckers.

Senator Fasano said of the possibility of the suit coming to Connecticut: “So in Rhode Island the question is whether or not tolling trucks-only is constitutional. If they do it in Connecticut and the court finds it unconstitutional they’ll (Democrats) say ‘OK, let’s add cars. Now we’re constitutional.'”

Ted Nesi of WPRI talks to the panel about the trucks and tolls in Rhode Island.
