WMSR News reported Tuesday that Tennessee lawmakers are considering a proposal that would make allowances for unlimited toll roads and bridges in the state.
Proponents of the bill blame a lack of Federal resources for the alleged need for toll roads.
Last week, transportation officials within the state were notified that they will need to deduct $66 million from money they were promised by the Federal Government, money needed for road work.
That brings the total to nearly a quarter-billion-dollars cut from Tennessees Federal road money since 2005.
Congressman Lincoln Davis visited Manchester Tuesday afternoon. He spoke on several topics, and addressed the issue of federal budget cuts and Tennessee toll roads.
To hear the full interview, tune in to Thunder Radio at 12:30 this afternoon.
