Asked about toll fairness during a Patch live chat, Governor Deval Patrick asked a reader whether he'd support high-speed tolls. Are these a good way to share the transportation funding pain, or another money grab?
Are high-speed tolls along Interstate 93 and other highways a smart way to help fund transportation in the state? Governor Deval Patrick mentioned such a system during a Patch live chat on Thursday. If you've taken Interstate 95 into New Hampshire, you've seen high-speed tolling in action. The system is designed to read your EZ-Pass (new Fast Lane) transponder while you breeze by at 65 miles per hour. There's no need to slow down or squeeze though a booth, as EZ-Pass users currently do on the Mass Pike, Tobin Bridge and harbor tunnels. The chat moved on to other topics, so no details about implementation were offered. What do you think? Would tolls along I-93 be fair, a pay as you drive strategy? Or are tolls in general a bad way to fund …

State Senate candidate Tom Keyes joined us yesterday in a live chat. Here's a recap of the Q&A session.
From Jill Pittsley: "What is the best way to create more transparency at the state house?" Tom Keyes: I am so glad you ask that question. If you go to my website VoteKeyes.com you will see my 13 point plan to restore integrity to the State House. We need stop bundling amendments. We need to stop negotiating behind closed doors the budget. It was not right when the Senate reduced the cooling off period for legislators being able to work for the casinos from 5 years to one. This was done behind closed doors. From Guest: We have a bunch of career politicians up there - how can the voters force transparency because I don't believe one politician can do it? Tom Keyes: Elections have consequences. It is important to elect people who will stand …
