Liberty Line 5/20/11 Rep. Andy Harris and Holly Alfano

For a Friday edition Liberty Line we focus on travel once again--though this time the folks that are trying to put a damper on the experience.

First up is Rep. Andy Harris, MD, from Maryland's 1st Congressional District. He's talking about the state's abominable plans to once again jack up tolls for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, this time nearly 300%. Is this part-and-parcel of the War on Rural America? You decide!

Then Holly Alfano, VP for Government Affairs for the National Association of Truck Stop Owners (yes, they have their own lobby!), comes on to talk about congressional efforts to put state highway rest areas in direct competition with their members... and the hundreds of thousands of small businesses that rely on interstate travelers!
