Feds propose mandating "interoperability of electronic toll collection devices for all toll facilities..."
Posted on Tue, 2009-06-23 00:24



The Surface Transportation Authorization Act of 2009 (STAA or hb44) filed today by US house transport committee chair James Oberstar requires the US Secretary of Transportation to establish a "national standard for the interoperability of electronic toll collection devices for all toll facilities on the National Highway System" within 18 months of the law's enactment. Not later than two years after the national standard is established "all toll facilities on the National Highway System shall adopt such standard," the legislation declares.

All major toll facilities in the country are classified as components of the National Highway System so this provision in the bill would apparently affect most US tollers.

This national interoperability for electronic tolling was not mentioned in materials released last week and it takes about half of one page of 775 pages of the pdf of the bill released today (page 300 of Sec 1301):

OKLAHOMA CITY — The chairman of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee praised the progress being made on Oklahoma highway projects funded by $465 million in federal stimulus money.

Rep. James Oberstar, D-Minn., on Monday joined members of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Rep. Mary Fallin, R-Okla., and others for a tour of the Interstate 244 Inner
Dispersal Loop in Tulsa and of the roadway reconstruction project along Interstate 40 between El Reno and Oklahoma City. Fallin is a member of Oberstar's committee.
