Convicts could soon be handling toll collections from North Texas Tollway Authority.

The agency uses pictures of license plates to send bills. The computer system rejects thousands of photos a day and that requiring someone to review them.

NTTA planned to hire an outside firm to do that job.

The finalists include one firm that hires Oklahoma prisoners. Two others would send the photos to India.

The board will discuss the options in March.
