Good morning,

I just left the joint legislative transportation committee meeting this morning in Raleigh that met today to discuss a proposed bill regarding the ferry toll.

I am pleased to report the committee voted to delay the implementation of the tolls until Rep. Spears bill to remove the tolls from the budget is considered by the legislature in the short session this May. I know that there has been a great deal of concern throughout our communities about this tax and hope that it will be eliminated by the legislature.Our communities have been hit by the poor coastal economy and last fall’s Hurricane and another tax on the working people of our community would be even more damaging.

Thanks to Senator Preston for her work in helping this happen.
