Port Authority Toll Hikes

Meanwhile, the recent Hudson River toll hikes imposed by the Port Authority are also ripping off motorists across the tri-state region. Instead of being used to fund the maintenance of our roads and bridges, these toll hikes are being used to finance cost overruns associated with construction of the new World Trade Center site and to pay the six figure salaries of top level members at the Port Authority.
