NATICK (CBS) – The many people who travel the Mass. Pike on a daily basis would get a break under legislation being considered on Beacon Hill Tuesday.

One proposal would freeze tolls on the Turnpike, while another would exempt some senior citizens from paying tolls. Another would create an H.O.V. lane.

The proposals will be considered by the joint committee on transportation.

Senator Michael Moore of Millbury says if they can do it on the Expressway, they can do it on the Pike.

“Until someone brings it up, the issue doesn’t move forward,” says Senator Moore.

The issue is up Tuesday, whether it moves forward is another matter.
