right to toll
2012-05-16: A large and diverse bipartisan group of transportation specialists has signed a two page letter urging that states and local government be given more discretion to use tolls to fund roads. The letter addressed to house and senate leaders forming a conference committee is being delivered to offices of others on Capitol Hill who may a say in any the different 'reauthorization' efforts.
Lobby groups for America's cities and states now are on record as wanting the right to toll without federal restriction.
The National Governors Association last year adopted this as formal policy:
"Governors support the removal of federal restrictions on states’ authority to toll federally-aided highways."
This is Policy Position EDC-13. Surface Transportation dated 2009/07/20 and under Funding at 13.2.2
