As expected, Massachusetts lawmakers have overriden Governor Patrick’s veto of a massive transportation funding bill. That means higher taxes on gas and cigarettes starting next week. Moving forward, the gas tax will be tied to inflation. Driving on the western end of the Mass Pike will remain free for the time being. The transportation bill does not bring back the tolls to the western end of the pike, at least not yet. A decision on the tolls at exits 1 through 6 will be made after a study is completed sometime next year. The override votes in the House and the Senate Thursday put an end to a lengthy standoff on Beacon Hill.
