More about how Ed Clere's and Kerry Stemler's tolling-without-representation will be determined.

Style note: Henceforth, "bridge tolls" to be referred to as "Clere's bridge tolls," especially in even-numbered years.

New bridge tolls could be decided next year, by Marcus Green (C-J)

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Drivers won’t be able to cross the two new Ohio River bridges for about five years, but they may know how much the trips are likely to cost as early as next year.

Kentucky and Indiana officials Tuesday set July 2013 as the target for initial toll amounts, what discounts will be offered, how the money will be collected and other tolling policies.

Those decisions will be made by a six-member body that won’t necessarily include residents of Louisville and Southern Indiana, although officials in both states say they’ll seek local input.
