Emails are usually answered by staff. Please call Rep Fox's office directly @ 222-2447 and ask that he support bill 6210 regarding Sakonnet River Bridge tolls. Office is being bombarded with calls, so let's keep the pressure on! Negotiations are continuing on costs to be spread across state's drivers and cost is coming down.
