(Concord, NH) - The Executive Council was scheduled to vote on the rate hike at Wednesdays meeting.

Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement a short time ago:

“Removing this proposal from the agenda will provide Granite Staters the opportunity to make their voices heard,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “I am opposed to a toll increase.  As I have said, it is important for this process to remain open and public, and I am pleased that the Executive Council requested the toll increase be removed from the agenda to allow for a more robust public comment session.”
