Breaking News: House Minority Leader Brian Newberry has requested that Speaker Mattiello open an investigation into the DOT’s alleged involvement in intimidating State Representatives who opposed the tolls.
From Speaker of the House Nick Mattiello:
“I appreciate the concerns expressed by Leader Newberry. However, I have looked into the situation and if this issue was based on actual facts, I would request that an oversight hearing be held. I have learned that the letter was written by a few Representatives based on their own personal concerns and not on any actions taken by the DOT. I have found the DOT, under the new leadership of Director Alviti, to be very accommodating to the Representatives and the public.”
