Missouri Senator against I-70 toll roads

(KMOV) – The Missouri Constitution would have to be changed for a bill to pass which will allow the Department of Transportation to contract a private company to fix Interstate 70 in exchange for being allowed to charge tolls, according to a Senator.

Senator Tom Dempsey says changing the state Constitution is not something that happens often and he is opposed to having the tolls without the approval of voters.

Senator Dempsey thinks there could be other ways to raise money to fix I-70 such as looking at the gas tax.
