Governor Backs Off Toll Roads Sale/Lease

The Associated Press today reports that Blagojevich says that he won't sell or lease the Illinois tollway to come up with extra money.

Indiana has agreed to a $3.8 billion lease of its 157-mile tollway in the northern part of the state. Indiana will use the money from the deal to pay for highway and other construction projects, they say.
