Rep. Raymond Gallison says he sent a letter to Gov. Lincoln Chafee this week asking him to replace the authority’s board members. Gallison criticizes the board for suggesting that the $2 per axle toll should be increased on the Pell Bridge, which connects Newport and Jamestown.
Gallison says more tolls aren’t needed and could discourage tourism in the Ocean State.
Chafee has not publicly responded to Gallison’s letter.
