HARRISBURG - A state representative from Central Pennsylvania proposed an idea to try to fix Pennsylvania's transportation funding problems by implementing toll booths at state borders.
Representative Scott Conklin (D - Centre) calls his idea the "Gateway Tolling for Transportation Independence Today Bill."
The bill would setup tolls at the state border of every Pennsylvania Interstate Highway.
Each time a driver passes through those tolls, they would have to pay $1, whether he or she is entering or leaving Pennsylvania.
It's the same plan for commercial truck drivers, except the toll would be more expensive, like $5.
Conklin said the price is reasonable. He also said that most of the people that would be paying the toll are just driving through the state.
Conklin claimed that this would bring in at least $300 million for road and bridge repairs and highway maintenance.
