2013 House Bill 4925: Authorize toll road and bridge “public/private partnerships”
  1. Introduced by Rep. Marilyn Lane (D) on August 2, 2013, to authorize the state Department of Transportation to enter “public/private partnerships” for roads, bridges and other facilities, potentially including additional toll-charging lanes on freeways. The state could borrow against future revenues (“sell bonds”) to pay for these projects, which would be owned by the state, with the private vendor collecting user fees.
    • Referred to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on August 2, 2013.
