There's no love lost between Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers fans, but a measure under consideration by the Pennsylvania legislature could spark an all-out war between the states. If passed, the state will attempt to erect toll booths on 11 interstate roads where they enter Pennsylvania, soaking Buckeye visitors and those from other states every time they cross the border. Either way.

Like many other states, the Pennsylvania state budget has been strained by the recession, and the state was turned down by the Federal Highway Administration in its plan to make I-80 into a toll road like I-70, both of which cross the state east and west. This is its newest brainstorm to address a $500 million shortfall in the state's transportation budget.
