Assemblyman Mark Schroeder: Abolish Thruway Authority

by on April 29, 2008

The Buffalo Bean fully endorses this bill:

The latest series of toll hikes approved by the Thruway Authority is the last straw for State Assemblyman Mark Schroeder. The South Buffalo democrat has introduced a bill to abolish the Thruway Authority.

Schroeder tells WNED News the toll issue has been a never-ending story.

“This fight has gone on for half-a-century. Let’s begin all over again and let’s really begin to look at how to work government properly,” Schroeder said.

Schroeder points to the findings of state audits that concluded the latest toll hikes are not necessary.

“They’ve ignored it and they’ve decided to do whatever they want to do,”

Noting the sky high gas prices and the nation’s economic woes, Schroeder says the timing of the toll increases couldn’t be worse.
