"OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority has delayed voting on a proposal to increase tolls in the state because of a pending lawsuit. The authority's board decided Tuesday not to vote on a proposal that would increase tolls by a total of 17 percent over three years. The increase would help pay off bond debt to fund new construction around the state. But last week, attorney Jerry Fent filed suit over the issuance of the bonds, arguing that a 1987 law that authorizes the construction of turnpikes violates a constitutional requirement that laws deal with only one subject. A Sept. 20 hearing is set in that case.", newsok.com
"The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority on Tuesday postponed consideration of a proposed 17 percent toll increase, pending a lawsuit. The increase was to help pay off nearly a half-billion dollars in bond debt the authority plans to incur to fund new construction. Major expansion and improvements are to include an eastern Oklahoma County toll road between Interstate 40 and the Turner Turnpike. This project has attracted opposition from people in its path who are concerned about quality of life and property values. Turnpike officials say it is needed to reduce the growing load of traffic on Interstate 35. The proposed rate increase would include a 12 percent jump to take effect Jan. 1, a 2.5 percent increase a year later", newsok.com
