BOSTON, Mass. — In a CBS WBZ (channel 4) TV interview Wednesday, Dawson Rutter, CEO, Commonwealth Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation, commented on the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s decision to increase registry, inspection and road-test fees to make up a projected $60 million needed to fund state infrastructure initiatives.

Rutter explained that such fee increases coupled with increasing taxes and regulations could force him to rethink keeping his company in Boston and could effect hiring new employees. View the interview here.
