Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels says he supports tolling to help pay for the $4.1 billion Ohio River Bridges Project.
“It’s the only way to do it,” he said. “My own view is that it’s a very fair thing to do. Out of state motorists will pay a very high percentage of the cost this way. I don’t think a users fee basically is unfair in any way.”
Daniels made his remarks following an address to a business group in Jeffersonville Wednesday morning.
He also told reporters that he has no plans to run for president in 2012, pointing to the fact that he has not raised any money and has no plans to visit any key election states such as New Hampshire and Iowa.
