CBS 6: Proposed law would block new E-Z Pass fee

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)— A delegate who represents parts of Chesterfield, Richmond and Henrico is trying to make it so that VDOT will never be able to charge such a fee.

Thousands voiced their concern over the Virginia Department of Transportation’s proposed monthly fee on E-ZPass transponders, which caused the department to rethink their fee structure.

“We got a pass, that’s enough. We don’t need another monthly fee in there to be taken out,” said Rita Williams from Chesterfield.

Delegate Manoli Loupassi, R-68th District, has decided to take action in the Virginia General Assembly.

“My legislation would stop them from having any monthly fee on those transponders,” said Loupassi.

On Monday, Loupassi filed a bill that would prevent VDOT from charging customers a monthly fee for use of any automated pay program on Virginia toll roads.
