Maryland State Legislators Double Down on Efforts To Limit Toll-Lane Proposal

State legislators in Montgomery County are doubling down on efforts to limit toll lanes along I-270 and the Capital Beltway.

Three Montgomery County state lawmakers plan to reintroduce bills that would curb Gov. Larry Hogan’s ability to widen both highways without significant input from local jurisdictions.

Sen. Susan Lee (D-Bethesda) will submit legislation that would prevent state agencies from constructing toll roads or bridges without consent from the majority of counties affected by the project.
