Lawmakers Protest Turnpike Toll Hike

A trio of West Virginia legislators picketed a Turnpike toll plaza Saturday to protest that morning's increase in rates.

MetroNews and The Register-Herald of Beckley offer coverage, and photos, of the turnout by Delegates Clif Moore, D-McDowell, and Mercer County Republican delegates Mike Porter and John Shott.

Update: Critics of the Turnpike's tolls have often observed that no other West Virginia highway has them. But as MetroNews reports separately, that appears destined to change.
