Crouch: Thruway Authority Toll Increase Will Derail State’s Economic Progress

Statement from Assemblyman Cliff Crouch (R,I-Guilford)
August 22, 2012

“Over the past two years, we have worked very hard to improve the business climate in New York State and help job creators grow their businesses for the benefit of all New Yorkers. Once again, the Thruway Authority is finding a way to hinder that progress. The Thruway Authority’s plan to increase tolls on commercial vehicles by 45 percent will not only harm businesses and slow our economic progress but will hurt each and every New York consumer by increasing shipping costs. That’s why I am joining fellow elected officials and business leaders to oppose the ill-advised Thruway toll hike and keep our state from taking a step in the wrong direction.”
