I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but by Federal law, ALL taxes collected on a federal interstate (I-5s and I-10s), MUST go DIRECTLY to that section of interstate. There is no law prohibiting toll collection on fed interstates, but the law clearly states that any funds go back to that section of interstate. Just FYI...

.........50 years, no matter when the initial investment is recovered........
.........State still puts up the majority of the money.................
.........Local agencies not able to improve or add to existing roads.........

Sounds like the negotiators for the government were outclassed.
Or believe they have a new career with a private road company when they retire.

The legislators paying attention need to squash this deal and get a new one that reflects the interests of the public, and not a few private and public special interests.

One that takes advantage of private businesses better efficiency and governments responsibility to protect everyone's interests.
