Contact your Legislators
The Virginia General Assembly will go into session on January 9 and legislators need to hear about the impact that tolling I-95 will have on the Commonwealth. Tolling I-95 is the most inefficient way to generate revenue for transportation and it will have a devastating impact on diversion, public safety and Virginia’s business-friendly reputation. If you are unsure who your legislator is CLICK HERE to find out. Send an email to both your Delegate and Senator and express your opposition to tolling I-95.
Contact the Governor
We need to let the Governor know the impact that tolling I-95 will have on citizens throughout Virginia. Please take the time to write the Governor regarding your concern with his administration’s proposal to toll I-95. The Governor makes the final decision on whether or not he wants tolls on I-95 to move forward, so he needs to hear loud and clear that Virginians do NOT support tolling I-95.
To email the Governor, visit his website or call him at (804) 786-2211.
Encourage Your Local Government to Pass a Resolution
Local governments across Virginia have rallied in opposition to tolls on I-95. Make sure that your county Board of Supervisors or local Town Council understands the implications that tolling I-95 will have on all Virginians. Request that they write a formal resolution in opposition to plans to toll I-95 and that it is sent to the Governor.
