landline-continuesThe Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association has invited truckers to join federal and state lawmakers in Pennsylvania to speak against proposed tolls on Interstate 80.
The Association issued a Call to Action this week to its 5,500 members in Pennsylvania urging them to attend the rally, scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., Monday, Sept. 24, on the steps of the Pennsylvania Capitol Building in Harrisburg.
OOIDA officials and members will be joined by U.S. Rep. John Peterson, R-PA, to speak in opposition to the proposal approved by state lawmakers to impose new tolls on I-80.
Truckers wishing to participate in the event can park their rigs, starting at 11 a.m., at the TravelCenters of America plaza at the Manada Hill Exit on Interstate 81 – Exit 77 on Interstate 81 at State Route 39 (see map below).
From there, participants will be joined by Peterson and taken by bus or shuttle to the event on the Capitol steps. Trucks are not permitted to park in the vicinity of the capitol building.
The TA is approximately eight miles from the Capitol.
