A Massachusetts state lawmaker says that the plan to end
tolls on much of the state's turnpike might be illegal.
State Rep. Joseph Wagner, D- Eighth District, who co-chairs
the Joint Committee on Transportation, told The Boston Globe that
non-toll revenue cannot be used to pay off borrowing called for under Gov. Mitt
Romney has called for borrowing against the value of the
road's service plazas to pay off part of the remaining turnpike bonds.
