Coalition to oppose toll facility privatization
Feb 13, 2007 11:54 AM
The American Trucking Associations (ATA), in conjunction with the American Automobile Association, the American Highway Users Alliance, the National Association of Truck Stop Operators, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association, and the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association have formed a coalition of highway user groups to oppose privatization or leasing of existing toll facilities to private investors.
ATA strongly opposes the lease or sale of existing toll roads, bridges, or tunnels to private parties, and has called upon the government to abandon the financing techniques. The trucking industry supports the objective of a toll-free national highway system where funds to finance highway improvements primarily come from highway user fees, such as the fuel tax.
