IBTTA applauds the Administration and U.S. DOT's release today of the GROW AMERICA Act 2.0. Once again, the Administration has boldly called for lifting the ban on Interstate tolling for the purpose of reconstruction. This will give states greater flexibility to meet their challenging infrastructure and surface transportation needs.

In addition, Patrick D. Jones, Executive Director and CEO of IBTTA stated, “IBTTA fully supports the Administration's proposed requirement that any new toll facilities on Federal-aid highways use non-cash all electronic tolling as of October 1, 2016."

Javier Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority and President of IBTTA said, "This good news comes as IBTTA members meet in Washington, D.C. and visit congressional offices this afternoon. We look forward to working with Congress and the Administration to pass a long-term surface transportation bill."
