Living in the Inland Northwest, it's easy to get to Canada. All you have to do is take a quick drive north and you're there. But, would you pay to make that border crossing? That's one idea being floated in the federal government. In its 2014 budget, the Department of Homeland Security requests permission to study an entry fee for the nation's border crossings. Those who back the fee say it's a good way to page for aging infrastructure at the crossings. But, northwest lawmakers are staunchly opposed, saying it would hurt border communities that rely on people and goods moving freely across that border. What do you think: would you pay a fee to cross the border? Is it worth it to pay for new infrastructure? Leave your comments!
