Connecticut Taking First Drive Toward Tolls

Governor Ned Lamont's proposal to place electronic tolls on highways across Connecticut faces a legislative hearing today.

Lamont's proposal would place electronic tolling gantries on Interstates 95, 91 and 84, and on the Merritt Parkway.

The governor believes tolls will provide the state with stable revenues needed to deliver state residents a first class transportation system.

Some Republican lawmakers have called out the authors of one of the bills which could allow approval of tolls without lawmakers ever taking a vote.

The hearing will take place before the legislature's Transportation Committee at the State Capitol complex in Hartford.
