Trucking industry warns tolls could ‘destroy’ businesses in Pennsylvania

A proposal to add tolls to some interstate bridges could “destroy” the state’s trucking industry, the head of the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association told lawmakers Monday.

The bridge tolling strategy “is the wrong approach to increasing the highway funding needed to keep Pennsylvania’s infrastructure sound,” said Joe Butzer, interim president of the PMTA. “This strategy will destroy the trucking industry,” he said.
