SULLIVAN SUPPORTS TRUCKERS CAPITOL CONVOY
Joseph P Sullivan, of Albany, Democratic candidate for Congress, 21st District
supports the truckers Capitol convoy which will arrive at the State Capitol on
Thursday, June 19 at about 10 AM.
The purpose of the convoy is to motivate state legislators to provide fuel tax and NYS Thruway toll relief to truckers.
If the state legislature grants truckers fuel tax and toll relief, this will keep trucks rolling and result in lower food prices at local markets, said Sullivan.
New York State and Federal governments, have experienced a fuel tax windfall as a result of the rapid escalation of fuel costs. Both governments can, and should, provide fuel tax relief to truckers, which translates into food cost relief for all, Sullivan said.
