Republican Lawmakers to Announce Listening Tour

Republican lawmakers in both the House and Senate will be holding a press conference Thursday, where they will announce the launching of the Hardship Listening Tour.

The tour will kick off on March 16th, just two weeks before the significant toll hikes are expected to go into effect. At tomorrow’s press conference, the GOP delegation will announce the dates and locations of the stops on the tour. Residents will be encouraged to attend the forum in their area to share frustration over the proposed gas tax increase, scheduled toll fee hikes among other hardship taxes.

The press conference will be held tomorrow (Thursday) at 11:30 a.m. outside of the House Chamber on the third floor of the Statehouse.
