OK (KSWO) - The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority has delayed voting on a proposal to increase tolls in the state because of a pending lawsuit.
Last year, state officials announced plans to issue $900 million worth of bonds over the next few years to expand and renovate Oklahoma's turnpike system.
The proposal would have increased tolls by a total of 17 percent over three years.
Attorney Jerry Fent filed a suit over the issuance of the bonds arguing a 1987 law that authorizes the construction of turnpikes violates a constitutional requirement.
A hearing has been set in that case for September 20th.
