The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is behind on payments to the state amid a lawsuit over its rising tolls.

The commission has hiked tolls 200% in the last decade.

Transportation Secretary Leslie Richards, who sits on the turnpike commission board, says the agency has so much debt that it will have to hike tolls every year until the year 2044 to pay it off.
