Selling State Tollways

Illinois leaders are thinking of selling the state's tollway system. This likely means higher toll rates for motorists.

If tollways were privatized a new study finds these possible scenarios: I-pass users will be paying an increase from 40 cents to 64 cents on average in 4 years.

And for cash payers may be paying $1.27 over $.80 Yet state lawmakers say selling the tollways ... could help the state earn billion of dollars that would go towards state projects.
