Update on NH tolls

Well, my toll bill isn't going up as high as I previously thought. EZPass users will continue to get a 30 percent discount which means that we will essentially be paying what everyone else is paying now. That rate will increase from 52 cents to 70 cents. So, I will see an increase of about $188 not $260. Obviously, this isn't as bad as previously thought. But, that's not really the point. The larger point is that the Legislature needs to control its spending. The money raised from current gas taxes and tolls should all be put towards road improvement costs and not spent on other things.
