From toll roads to toll rivers

Much of the news coverage stemming from the White House’s recent “infrastructure week,” an effort to push for a $1 trillion infrastructure package, focused on hot-button topics like pipelines and environmental permitting. But President Donald Trump deserves accolades for highlighting a lesser known issue: the deteriorating state of locks and dams along the nation’s inland waterways. While the president correctly diagnosed what ails our waters, precise details about how he would fix the problem remain scarce. The president should directly embrace the obvious solution: it’s time to institute “toll rivers.”
