Infrastructure Repairs Driving Toll Debate In Connecticut

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont is reissuing his support to place electronic tolling on the state's major highways.

Before yesterday's legislative hearing, Lamont explained the tolls are necessary because the roads are too clogged.

He says businesses thinking about moving to Connecticut are talking with him consistently about traveling conditions.

Opponents say tolls would be another tax on residents who already are being overtaxed.

One woman from Fairfield told hearing members that she could never support tolls because she simply did not trust lawmakers with the money.

If tolls were to be installed, then under the current proposal it would cost $1.60 round trip to go from Enfield to Hartford.
