Rhode Island is moving forward with its plan to set up truck-only tolls and the trucking industry is looking for any way to stop it – no matter how unlikely the method. This time, the American Trucking Association is using what it claims are flawed environmental reports to fight back.
It’s not just Rhode Island truck-only tolls that the ATA is concerned about. If they succeed there, they could spread to other states. And even if they are eventually implemented, if the ATA can make Rhode Island fight for every step along the way, other states may decide that it’s simply not worth the hassle.
