Albany (August 15, 2012) – Mike Durant, State Director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), today issued the following reaction to New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s recent analysis of the fiscal condition of the State Thruway Authority:
“Today’s report by Comptroller DiNapoli paints a disturbing financial picture within the State Thruway Authority. The simple fact remains that toll hikes should not be used to sweep fiscal mismanagement under the rug.
“This will slash jobs, hurt every sector of New York’s economy and raise prices on consumers. I applaud the Comptroller for issuing this report and we join our partner Unshackle Upstate in calling for an audit of the State Thruway Authority.”
