W.Va. Parkways official stresses toll importance

Posted:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A West Virginia Parkways Authority commissioner says the state's new-look Legislature will need to know the importance of keeping tolls on the West Virginia Turnpike. Republicans will have control of both chambers of the Legislature in January.

The Charleston Gazette reports Bill Seaver said at Thursday's Parkways Authority meeting that the group needs to let new legislators know about the importance of keeping tolls going on the Turnpike. Last year the House of Delegates overwhelmingly passed a bill to repeal the tolls. The Senate never took up the bill. Revenue from the tolls help pay for road construction and maintenance of the 88-mile highway between Charleston and Princeton.
