The Knox news sentinel is now reporting on toll roads. I was on the radio with Lee and Terry Frank last week and mentioned how the legislation had passed the legislature to start them. The phone lines lit up. People hate toll roads. Many were mad that they never read any thing about their coming up in the legislature until it was too late. Yes, this is called a "pilot program" but I think those words are about interchangeable with "temporary program" and Ronald Reagan said it best.
"Nothing is as permanent as a "temporary program""
Well the issue isn't totally dead. More legislation is coming next year to open the door all the way. When it is all said and done private companies (foreign owned is many times the case) will profit from roads planned by the state. Land taken with E.D. by the state and potentially fully built by the state with your tax dollars.
