The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 9 - Paragraph 6

No preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one state over those of another: nor shall vessels bound to, or from one state, be obliged to enter, clear, or pay duties in another.

No Preference shall be given by any Regulation of Commerce or Revenue to the Ports of one State over those of another:

All of the States are to be treated equal.

nor shall Vessels bound to, or from, one State, be obliged to enter, clear or pay Duties in another.

This is pretty clear - are the fees paid by the trucking companies at each State Border unconstitutional?

When we travel from State to State we see the "Entry Ports" that have been established by the States to control and collect fees from the trucks entering the State. This action is not permitted.
