Newport County Chamber of Commerce opposes Bridge Tolls

SAKONNET RIVER BRIDGE TOLL

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, THE NEWPORT COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAS STRONGLY OPPOSED THE BRIDGE TOLLS THAT ARE TO BE PLACED ON THE NEW SAKONNET RIVER BRIDGE. THE CHAMBER UNDERSTANDS THE ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL IMPLICATION THAT WILL AFFECT NOT ONLY LOCAL BUSINESSES BUT THEIR EMPLOYEES AS WELL. WITH THIS UNDERSTANDING, THE CHAMBER HAS NOT STOPPED FIGHTING FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR MEMBERS’ BUSINESSES AND HAS COMBINED OUR EFFORTS WITH LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE RAYMOND E. GALLISON. REPRESENTATIVE GALLISON HAS ASKED OUR MEMBERS TO SEND COMMENTS TO THE RIDOT UNDERLINING HOW MUCH OF A NEGATIVE IMPACT THE TOLLS WOULD BE ON YOUR BUSINESS. THE CHAMBER WOULD LIKE TO ASK ALL OF OUR MEMBERS TO SEND THEIR COMMENTS ELECTRONICALLY TO customerservice@dot.ri.gov
