Boston Globe Charts AET’s Spread Throughout the Northeast US

Boston Globe reports, “Sorry, Boston drivers. Your free ride through Connecticut could be ending. Two top Connecticut lawmakers are saying new tolls are inevitable. And a legislative committee there just narrowly endorsed a bill that would bring all-electronic toll collecting to the state, although the precise locations haven’t yet been decided.” The report adds, in Massachusetts, “The coalition known as Transportation 4 Massachusetts . . . is saying a bill from Senator Thomas McGee that would impose more tolls within Route 128 deserves consideration. . . . Meanwhile, Senator Karen Spilka filed legislation [S 1987] that would require . . . officials to study imposing all-electronic tolls on highways other than the Mass. Pike.”
