Tolling Taking Center Stage?

Will more Washington roads take their toll on drivers? That's the question posed in the headline of an article written by Aubrey Cohen of the seattlepi.com today, and which quotes my colleague, Cascadia Center Senior Fellow Matt Rosenberg extensively.

Discovery Institute Founder and President Bruce Chapman comments on the issue over at Discovery Blog under the post "For Whom the Highway Tolls."

The country needs a general upgrade of infrastructure. Billions are now available through the stimulus bill, but still not enough. The emphasis on "shovel-ready" projects in the stimulus package, though understandable as a recession-fighter, is unhelpful when the need is for serious long term planning.

The seattlepi.com story quotes heavily from a recent Rosenberg article about tolling in Crosscut.
