NY Trucking Industry Has Uncomfortable Wait

The wait is getting uncomfortable. New York's trucking industry has been lobbying since the spring opposing a proposed 45% Thruway toll hike on tractor trailer trucks.

The Thruway Authority pulled the plug on a meeting last Friday and now is expected to take up the matter Tuesday.

Steve Wadhams the owner of Wadhams Enterprises in Junius says that kind of a hike would cost his company half a million dollars a year. That cost will be get passed along to his customers.  Wadhams says it's a bad time for increases.

Wadhams says they could find slower alternate routes-
