WROW Convoy To Protest State Inaction On Gas Tax Holiday
May 28, 2008 at 4:17 PM (PT)
PAMAL Talk WROW-A/ALBANY hosts SCOTT ALLEN MILLER and MARK WILLIAMS have a modest goal for their JUNE 19th promotion: They merely want to shut down the NEW YORK state government.
SCOTTO and WILLIAMS will be bringing a convoy of what is expected to be 400 big rigs to the Capitol building to hit their horns and demand that Gov. DAVID PATERSON comes out to address the truckers' concerns. The CONVOY TO THE CAPITOL was prompted by Assembly Speaker SHELDON SILVER's refusal to allow a vote on a gas tax holiday that has already passed the State Senate. WILLIAMS' listeners have been flooding SILVER's office with calls and e-mails and the truckers are threatening to boycott MANHATTAN if SILVER and PATERSON do not move on the bill.
WILLIAMS will accompany the convoy from FULTONVILLE to downtown ALBANY and will report on SCOTTO's show, and both hosts will report live all day.
