A Manhattan congressman is talking about bringing back the two-way toll at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

A published report says Congressman Jerry Nadler believes the return of two-way tolls might ease traffic congestion.

The toll from Staten Island to Brooklyn was eliminated in 1986. That led to a boom of toll-avoiding traffic into Lower Manhattan.

The MTA says all-electronic toll collection in coming years could settle the debate.
