How Indiana solved its toll problem

July 10, 2011

Regarding Brian Murphy's op-ed "Toll troubles" (July 7), Mr. Murphy fails to inform readers that Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana leased the Indiana Toll Road to a consortium from Australia and Spain for $3.5 billion over 99 years.

Moreover, the consortium collects tolls to finance all the improvements and maintenance of the now privatized highway.

Leave it to each of us to decide the merits of abandoning the public sector for the easy money from overseas.
