JP councilmen seek to cancel May election on CCC tolls

New Orleans, La. - Jefferson Parish Councilmen Chris Roberts and Elton Lagasse are calling on the legislature to call off the special election on the Crescent City Connection tolls.

They say the only way to determine whether the state can meet its obligation to run the bridge is to let the bridge run without a dedicated revenue source.

The Jefferson Parish Council will act on a resolution Wednesday asking the legislative delegation to call off the referendum in May and save the cost of the election, which would be incurred by the State of Louisiana.
