Supervisors to Get Veto Power on Toll Increases?

Did you see the Patch article about veto power regarding the Dulles Toll Road? According to the story:

Del. Jim LeMunyon (R-67th District) prefiled a bill Dec. 30 that would give veto power to the Boards of Supervisors of Fairfax and Loudoun counties on any toll increase on the Dulles Toll Road.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority now approves toll increases and controls the toll road. The toll increased by 25 cents Jan. 1 and is scheduled to increase again Jan. 1, 2012.

The money collected at the toll helps to pay for the Silver Line being built from East Falls Church, through Tysons Corner, to Ashburn.

LeMunyon said in a statement Dec. 30 he is concerned toll increases will deter drivers from using the toll road, causing congestion on nearby roadways, such as Interstate 66 and Route 7.
