Ohio House Approves Budget Bill that Relies on Turnpike Tolls to Fund Other State Transportation Projects

The Blade reports, “The Ohio House on Wednesday [March 1] overwhelmingly supported a $7.8 billion, two-year transportation and public safety budget that would experiment with varying speed limits to regulate traffic flow on selected highways.” The newspaper adds, “The measure appropriates the funding for road projects across the state using revenue from the gas tax, the federal highway fund, and turnpike tolls. It does not raise the state’s gas tax.”
