Did you read that? CONTROVERSY means private banks may choose NOT to sell bonds and finance toll roads! They’re a risky proposition for investors. That’s GREAT news for taxpayers! Let’s continue to stir up controversy…it’s one of our paths to stopping this highway robbery!
ANGRY? TAKE ACTION!
Write AND call the Governor (800) 252-9600 (web mail) and your State Representative to DEMAND this be STOPPED!
Go here to find your state representatives.
Give some fresh calls to your legislators and the Governor and tell them what you think about these companies having exclusive control of our highways (even the roads surrounding the toll lanes) WITH NO OVERSIGHT BY ANY ELECTED OFFICIAL!
