Update on the Proposed Sakonnet Bridge Toll

Please continue to write letters to the editor of the various papers and on line media.

To all users of the Sakonnet River Bridge, and all those 37,000 people who took the time to sign our NO TOLL Petition, please pass this information to all your friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow workers. 

The various groups working to stop the proposed the toll are working behind the scenes closely with the East Bay state senators and representatives.

Senator Felag and Representative Edwards have introduced bills and are in the process of getting signatures.  Almost all of the East Bay elected officials have signed the bills.  We will not know who has not signed those bills until January 20th.

Once we do, we ask that if you know state senators or representatives on the mainland, is to ask them for their support for the bill repealing Article 20.  We will get more information to you as soon as we can.

Why is he a pest? Because he's asking Jim for a link to back up what he say? I'd hardly consider that to be a pest. Jim made a statement, he should be able to back it up.
