Albany, NY – After just about every other politician has come out against toll increases on the state Thruway, Gov. Spitzer wass voicing his opposition today after the state comptroller's office yesterday called for no new toll increases.
"Based on the findings of an audit issued by the comptroller's office, we reject any proposed toll increases. We support the Comptroller's recommendations that the Authority undertake an in-depth review of spending, prioritize its capital budget, and review and justify its borrowing practices," Spitzer said in a statement.
Tolls already went up 10 percent for cash customers this month.
The state Assembly is holding a hearing tomorrow at 10 a.m. in Albany on the toll hikes. [lohudblogs]
