CHEYENNE – A legislative attempt to study tolling along Interstate 80 failed its first test, as the state Senate rejected a bill that proponents say would help the state meet its road needs.

The bill, sponsored by the Joint Transportation Committee, would have authorized the creation of a master plan to explore tolling along Interstate 80. It also would have given authority to the Wyoming Transportation Commission to place tolls and issue bonds to pay for construction on I-80, though the master plan would have needed legislative approval before implementation.
