Contact Your Legislator in Support of Tolling I-80
Just received this notice in my mailbox. I urge all of you to please contact your US Legislators today.
Call to Action
Thursday, February 18, 2010
Pennsylvania Act 44 of 2007 is in grave trouble and that means the economic future and vitality of the Commonwealth is in jeopardy unless immediate action is taken to toll Interstate 80.
Without these resources, we can anticipate a permanent annual loss in funding — $350 million for Highways and $150 million for Transit – statewide.
This is a $500 million LOSS that will translate into fewer permanent jobs and significantly reduced opportunities for contractors and engineers who support public transit and highway construction and revitalization initiatives.
The Commonwealth cannot afford to sustain such job losses or reduced capital investment in vital mobility infrastructure.
Please contact these legislators today and tell them that the tolling of Interstate 80 is essential to keep Pennsylvania working and growing.
