"Taxpayer Investment"

Tolls have their place, but reducing "taxpayer investment" means "giving revenue stream to private companies."
It continues an aggressive approach to transportation improvements that spans several administrations. Leaders in the administration and the General Assembly — in both parties — have shown a willingness to negotiate and compromise. They are open to enlisting private partners to cut the taxpayer investment.
I have been surprised that there hasn't been more toll backlash generally.
