Ocean State Job Lot CEO Marc Perlman speaks on WPRI 12's Newsmakers in February 2016.
Ocean State Job Lot CEO Marc Perlman has been an outspoken opponent of the tolling plan. He said he was "promised" by Governor Raimondo and House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello that the state would work out a program to offset some of the costs for local companies. "They both said, 'Let's get the first part out of the way and then we'll figure out how to support the Rhode Island truckers,'" Perlman recalled during a taping of WPRI 12's Newsmakers. He suggested an incentive package could include a total annual cap on tolls for individual trucks. "One idea that I suggest they consider is if they put a limit on the amount of tolling that any one truck could take on over the course of a year," Perlman said.

4. Despite last weekend's headlines, Ocean State Job Lot CEO Marc Perlman made clear on this week's Newsmakers he plans to go ahead with the company's $50-million warehouse expansion project at Quonset. Those who "were listening carefully," he said, understood his point was that the company just needed hard data on the cost of the tolling plan to move forward. "It's our intent to build this warehouse, not because it's the best place to build it - it's not," Perlman said. "My consultants have advised me we could save $4 million to $5 million if we opened this warehouse in Pennsylvania. And I said to them, Rhode Island has treated us well, this is where we educated our kids, this is where we live - we're going to put the warehouse here. He confirmed the company is seeking subsidies from the state's new economic-incentive programs, but said he didn't know how much exactly. 5. As for tolling overall, Marc Perlman said he expects the new law will cost Job Lot $9 million to $10 million over its first 10 years; to put that in perspective, he expects the company to ring up somewhere in the neighborhood of $670 million in sales this year. He remains adamant that it's unfair for the trucking industry to shoulder the burden of tolling alone. "There is no state in the United States that is taxing large trucks at the exclusion of every other motor vehicle, so we are going to be an outlier," Perlman said on Newsmakers. 21.
