N.C. Bill Strengthens Tolling Prohibition

In another victory for NATSO, American Trucking Associations (ATA) and the No Tolls I-95 Coalition, a North Carolina technical corrections bill signed by Gov. Pat McCrory further strengthens the state transportation law that limited the state's ability to toll existing interstates. N.C. House Bill 92 expressly prohibits the tolling of existing lanes.

Earlier this summer, McCrory signed H.B. 817 into law, which changed the way the state prioritizes road funding projects and limited the state's ability to impose tolls on existing Interstates.

Technical corrections legislation is common practice during the lawmaking process, allowing elected officials to clarify legislative language in previously passed bills and make other minor changes. 

The N.C. DOT had been seeking to toll I-95 under a federal pilot program.
