SAKONNET TOLL OPPOSITION PLATFORM
TO ALL PEOPLE OPPOSING THE TOLL / HEAD TO THE STATE HOUSE
Since the Governor signed the FY13 budget, which contained article 20, which would allow the Rhode Island Bridge Authority to toll the bridge, in 2012, we the people have formed a committee named STOP ( Sakonnet Toll Opposition Platform) that have put the word out against the toll…
Our elected officials have been working hard on our behalf. Now our Senators have introduced two bills, number S0020 to repeal this toll, and number S0242, which will bring a fair and equitable settlement to this fiscal problem. WE NOW HAVE TO STAND TALL, AND BACK THEM IN THIS ATTEMPT.
IF WE ARE TO BE HEARD, WE NEED NUMBERS, I MEAN THOUSANDS TO GO WITH US IN CARS, BUSES, VANS, AND ANY OTHER WAY, TO STAND OUR GROUND ON THIS ISSUE…..NO TOLL….
