In response to the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee releasing its proposed surface transportation reauthorization bill, the Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation in America (INVEST in America) Act, the Alliance for Toll-Free Interstates issued the following statement which can be attributed to Communications Director Stephanie Kane:
“We are glad to see the House abandoning tolling pilot programs and placing new guardrails on tolls in their proposal. The repeal of the Interstate System Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Pilot Program (ISRRPP) and a sunset provision for the Value Pricing Pilot Program are long overdue, and new requirements for congestion-pricing tolling will restrict the ill-advised implementation of tolls on existing interstates while holding toll operators accountable for the many negative impacts of tolls."
