Loupassi: Another tool in the regional toolbox

By G. MANOLI LOUPASSI, published in Richmond Times-Dispatch (Metered Paywall - 7 articles a month)

During the 2014 General Assembly session, I have again proposed equalizing the membership of the Richmond Metropolitan Authority, aka RMA, among the three localities: the city of Richmond and the counties of Henrico and Chesterfield. The bill also provides that the governing body of each of the three localities has the ability to veto any newly proposed project by the authority, or the issuance of new bonds. Additionally, the name of the RMA will be changed to the Richmond Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Del. G. Manoli Loupassi of the 68th House District, represents parts of Chesterfield, Henrico and the city of Richmond.

House subcommittee backs removing monthly fee on E-ZPass devices

By OLYMPIA MEOLA, Richmond Times-Dispatch (Metered Paywall - 7 articles a month)

Del. G. Manoli Loupassi’s attempt to eliminate the monthly fee on E-ZPass transponders advanced through a House subcommittee this morning over the concerns of road operators and the Virginia Department of Transportation. VDOT began charging a monthly fee of 50 cents on regular transponders and $1 for the Flex transponder for new customers as of July 9, 2012. The agency says the fee will help to cover the cost of administering the program, which allows drivers to use open air tolling gantries as opposed to stopping at a booth to toss change. The bill moves to the full House Transportation Committee, where it could face rough going.
