Lawmakers Say Tolls Should Not Be Permanent

During a public meeting on U.S. 35 tolls Monday night, Senator Mike Hall from Putnam County announced  he and Jackson County Senator Karen Facemyer plan to introduce legislation during the 2011 regular session that calls for removing any tolls once all construction-related bonds are retired. Hall says planned tolls shouldn't be permanent. The majority of people who spoke at the meeting opposed the state's plan to install tolls on the highway, but the West Virginia Parkways Authority says tolls are needed to pay for upgrading a 14.6-mile section in Mason and Putnam counties to four lanes. A public meeting took place in Winfield Tuesday evening.
