Oppose Higher Tolls?

Dear Friend,

I’ve worked across party lines to reduce tolls on the Dulles Greenway and am working with Loudoun County in their efforts on this important priority. More info is on my website here.

I’m happy to announce that the Loudoun Board of Supervisors took my recommendation to install a travel time electronic sign on Rt. 7 west of the Greenway to help drivers compare Rt. 7 and Greenway travel times.

Last session there was strong support for tightening control of Greenway tolls, however Western Loudoun Sen. Bell and a few other NoVa Democrats undermined the efforts after paying lip service in reelection campaigns.

I recently registered my opposition to the Greenway’s current rate increase application. Feel free to borrow from this letter as you send your comments to the State Corporation Commission (SCC).

You can do these things to help hold the line on Greenway toll increases:

1. Sign up to provide your input to the SCC indicating you would use the road if the tolls were not so unbearably high. Submit the Public Witness Form directly, OR complete and email PDF for PUR-2019-00218. Deadline to sign up is June 26. Additional talking points from the Loudoun County Chamber are here.

2. Call or email Senator John Bell’s office and let him know you’d like him to actually get to work on this issue and stop reciting the Greenway-lobbyist-prepared misinformation to defeat reform legislation. His number is (571) 367-9080 and his email address is district13@senate.virginia.gov

 

From the news: Greenway Oversight Bill Dies; Tolls Battle Moves to SCC

“A commuter traveling twice a day on the Greenway during rush hour, five days a week, 52 weeks a year would pay $4,108 in tolls annually.

Del. Dave A. LaRock (R-33), who this year also introduced a bill to add oversight to the Greenway, which was folded into Subramanyam’s bill, published a statement excoriating fellow General Assembly members. He said the bill failed because “other members of the legislature who represent Loudoun County refused to unite around this year’s effort.”

“I commend Delegate Subramanyam for a strong effort, but in contrast, Delegate [David A.] Reid (D-32), Senator [John J.] Bell (D-13), Senator [Jennifer B.] Boysko (D-33), and Senator [Barbara A.] Favola (D-31) have some explaining to do,” LaRock wrote.

Some of Loudoun’s delegation have expressed skepticism about bills like Subramanyam’s, citing Greenway representatives’ arguments that the bill would break an agreement between the state and the corporation.”

Other Topics of Interest:

Between now and July 1, I’ll be reminding you about the avalanche of new laws rammed through by the Democrats, which go into effect at the end of June. Coming soon:

  • List of good and bad 2A bills- how Democrats support taking guns, defunding police, instructing law enforcers to stand down when things get violent, and how bad Democrat legislation will make it harder to fire an officer who needs to be fired.
  • New Taxes and Fees- a long list
  • New regulations and employer mandates- after imposing draconian lockdown, Democrats are now rolling out many new anti-business laws while those businesses are trying to recover
  • Liberalizing abortion laws- 10 years of pro-life legislation tossed aside
  • Attacking religious organizations and free exercise of religion- after closing churches for 10+ weeks with illegal and unconstitutional Executive Orders, governor Northam and his anti-God Democrat team impose new laws to intimidate and bankrupt religious organizations for adhering to their faith as they serve the community.
  • Schools and Education- Gov. Northam, operating under the pretense of emergency authority is disrupting education in Virginia by micromanaging how schools are run. Teachers unions even oppose distance learning

Sincerely,
