Wyoming Lawmakers To Try Again With Interstate 80 Toll Bill

By: Cliff

Wyoming lawmakers will try again to enact tolls on Interstate 80. The Legislature’s Joint Highways, Transportation and Military Affairs has endorsed an I-80 toll bill for the annual legislative session, which begins Feb. 10. This year’s session is dedicated primarily to the budget. The I-80 toll bill and other legislation not directly related to the state budget will require a two-thirds vote to be introduced. Lawmakers have been discussing I-80 tolls as a way to raise money for roadwork for at least a decade. The tolls would require federal approval and likely take a decade or more to implement.
