Breaking - Some Proposed Toll Increases Reduced!

September 15, 2011 J

The Maryland Transporation Authority has made changes to the original proposal to increase Maryland’s tolls.

Though the proposal still increases toll rates, however, some are significantly lower than the original proposed tax increase. There also concesions that were made to those who use the Hatem Bridge with the AVI sticker.

Posted below are summaries of the new proposals. The final vote will on these proposals will be held Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011 but no public input will be allowed at the meeting.

If it was not for your efforts the original proposal containing much higher taxes would have been rubber stamped! It is a small victory, but a victory none the less. No matter what be proud of your efforts and the way you fought this damaging tax proposal.

Thank you for your efforts and hard work! You can still email the MDTA Board and Gov. O’Malley with your reaction here.
