US Senator Touts Toll Credits Marketplace Section Of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

US Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire) yesterday visited a vintage state bridge that needs  rehabilitation to draw attention to the importance of infrastructure renewal and to promote enactment of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Shaheen noted that the bipartisan bill, which awaits action in the House, includes a provision she championed that would “establish a marketplace for the sale and purchase of toll credits, which are accrued when states use toll revenues to invest in transportation projects that benefit the interstate system.” The bill also provides funding to enable small and rural states “to replace and repair bridges through new, dedicated grant programs.”
