Whiff of cynicism lingers over Washington State’s call for road tolls to flight global warming

Two bills expected to clear the state legislature this session would give the green light to tolls on major highways around Puget Sound as a way to reduce traffic and greenhouse-gas emissions. A recent study says Washington State could raise $36 billion over 20 years through variable tolls.

So far so good.
