Dean Suhr and John Ley ask Washington House Transportation Committee to reject Tolling on Interstate Bridge
The Washington House Transportation Committee met Thursday, April 12, holding a hearing on SB 5765. The bill would authorize WSDOT and the Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) to begin the process of implementing tolling on the Interstate Bridge.
Two citizens offered public testimony. Dean Suhr represents the Vote Before Tolls effort in Oregon. IP-4 is collecting signatures from Oregon citizens. If successful, it would require a vote before tolls could be placed on any Oregon highway or freeway. To learn more, go to the No Tolls Army website here.
Here is Dean’s testimony, followed by John Ley sharing the many flaws of the Interstate Bridge project and tolling in general.
Members of the committee included Representatives Jim Walsh, Ed Orcutt, Sharon Wylie, and Committee Chair Jake Fey.
