Default State Legislators Lift NV Ban on Toll Roads

From: Expect lots of upgrades in 2012, if there's cash to do them - News - ReviewJournal.com (at the end)

Quote:
BOULDER CITY BYPASS
We probably won't actually see heavy equipment in action until 2013, but we will throw it in here because it's a huge deal for Boulder City residents and the project is scheduled to go to bid this year.
The proposed bypass has generated plenty of controversy in Boulder City for the past decade. The opening of the Hoover Dam bypass bridge and the congestion caused by the inefficient capacity of U.S. Highway 93 stirred up the discussions again. This time, lawmakers were serious.
During its last session, state legislators agreed to lift a ban on toll roads to make way for the Boulder City bypass. The first phase of the bypass will be a three-mile stretch between U.S. Highway 95 in Henderson that loops around Railroad Pass and reconnects with the highway.
Any thoughts on the state legislators lifting the ban on toll roads here in the state? I could give my thoughts but it would just be complaining about another socialist CA policy being adopted here....

Always more taxes. Guess we won't be going that way anymore.
