ATLANTA -- A group of state lawmakers from north Fulton County are asking the state not to extend tolls on Ga. 400 for another decade.
High-ranking legislators from north Fulton County on Friday asked the state to reverse its decision to extend the Ga. 400 toll until 2020. House Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones said legislators are exploring whether they can cancel the toll themselves with a new law.
In addition to Jones, signers of the letter to the state Transportation Board include House Majority Whip Edward Lindsey, House Judiciary Chairman Wendell Willard and House Ethics Chairman Joe Wilkinson.
They also sent a copy of the letter to Gov. Sonny Perdue and Gov.-elect Nathan Deal.
The State Road and Tollway Authority voted in September to extend the toll.
