Ellmers Submits Bill to Forbid Tolls on I-95

Statement

Congresswoman Renee Ellmers released the following statement from her office in Washington this afternoon:

"This afternoon, I submitted a bill that will forbid the Federal Highway Administration from approving a pilot program that would enact tolls on Interstate 95 in order to pay for its expansion. After hearing from numerous constituents and businesses up and down the I-95 corridor, it is clear that NCDOT did not demonstrate that these improvements could be implemented without a toll as required by law. While our highways need to be updated to meet growing needs and usage, North Carolina taxpayers should not have to bear further burdens after paying one of the highest gas taxes in the country."
