A Montgomery County council committee will meet later this morning to discuss tolls on the Intercounty Connector.

The first portion of the ICC is expected to open next year. If the tolls proposed by the state of Maryland are adopted, a one-way trip on the ICC's full length from Gaithersburg to Laurel would be more than six dollars during rush hour. County council president Phil Andrews says tolls that high defeat the purpose of the road...

The county council can only make a recommendation to the state, which does not have to follow it when a final decision is made.
