The crescent city connection collected $20.5 million dollars in bridge tolls last fiscal year and now, as we approach the time when the tolls are set to expire, the end of next year, some lawmakers are saying the tolls should be extended.

But the watchdog group, Bureau of Governmental Research, BGR, has a new report out that argues the tolls should be allowed to expire.

The study also shows that only a fraction of each dollar a driver pays to cross the bridge actually goes to the bridge itself so Dennis sits down with CEO of BGR, Janet Howard to talk about the findings of the study on the tolls and the Crescent City Connection bridge, itself.
