That money helps pay for major work on state highways.</p> <p>But a public policy expert from the College of William and Mary says taxpayers will pay the price for the 2006 deal in lost toll road revenue that otherwise would have gone into the state treasury.</p> Mon, 10 Dec 2012 17:14:23 +0000 Rick Howlett & Associated Press 2896 at http://wfpl.org Study: Indiana Taxpayers Will Take Hit on Toll Road Lease
