Governor Sununu: No Toll Increase

Dec 21, 2017 by

NH Governor Chris Sununu announced that he’s stopping an effort to increase road tolls in the state.
The toll increase was scheduled to be voted on next month by the Executive Council.
The governor now says he won’t be putting the item on the agenda for the Council meeting.
The Governor sets the meeting agenda, so if the toll increase isn’t on the agenda, there can be no vote.

Governor Sununu on Thursday December 21, 2017 issued a statement on the toll increases, under the title:
Sununu: No Coal or Tolls in Christmas Stockings

“I have long been opposed to toll increases,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “After hearing from citizens across the state, reviewing feedback from the public comment sessions, and conferring with members of the Executive Council following yesterday’s final GACIT hearing, my position has not changed. Had the Council ultimately voted in favor of toll increases, I would have negated their vote. Dragging this process out is not productive. As such, I will not allow this toll increase to move forward. I was sent to Concord to fight for the working men and women of New Hampshire, and that is what I am doing.”
