Governor Healey rejects tolls along NH border following remarks from MassDOT secretary

Gov. Maura Healey rejected the idea of placing tolls along the New Hampshire border to generate funding for transportation initiatives. Massachusetts Department of Transportation Secretary Monica Tibbits-Nutt had suggested new tolls to charge drivers entering from New Hampshire as a way to address budgetary concerns. Healey stated that the administration is not proposing tolls at any border and emphasized the importance of collaboration to ensure a strong and robust state transportation system. State Auditor Diana DiZoglio and the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance criticized the tolling idea, raising concerns about economic impacts and congestion. MassDOT defended Tibbits-Nutt’s comments as part of the need for discussions on improving transportation systems.
