Business group warns of Thruway toll hike vote

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - An upstate business group is warning that the state Thruway Authority may try to approve a toll increase for truckers as early as Friday.

Unshackle Upstate's Brian Sampson says a toll increase that could be as high as 45 % could happen during a special meeting Friday.

Group members say any action while the state's attention is on the Superstorm Sandy disaster would be disgraceful.

The thruway authority has announced a meeting, but provided no agenda.
