Quigley, Other Reps Questioning 422 Tolls Proposal
OAKS PA – With U.S. Route 422 serving as a backdrop for a Thursday (June 9, 2011) press conference, some area legislators – including state Rep. Tom Quigley, who represents Lower Pottsgrove, Pottstown and Limerick – made it clear they were not convinced that imposing tolls on the highway’s drivers was an answer for its financial future, WFMZ-TV Channel 69 reported.
Quigley openly questioned if, over a period of several years, money initially dedicated to 422 from its tolls wouldn’t be used to fund other legislative projects. He was joined at the media event by four other House representatives whose districts cover from Montgomery, Chester and Berks counties.
