CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A plan to let drivers go full speed through tolls on Interstate 95 in New Hampshire has cleared the state House of Representatives.

Only drivers with E-ZPass transponders would be able to take advantage of so-called open tolling.

Gov. John Lynch backs the idea as a way to cut both congestion and pollution at the Hampton toll plaza.

Making it happen would require changing ownership of a stretch of the highway and raising the toll by 50 cents.

The bill now goes to the Senate.
