Connecticut Moving Closer To Tolls

Governor Ned Lamont is calling for discussions to begin with legislative leaders on electronic tolling no later than next week.

Lamont says he will be using his authority to call the legislature into special session over the summer to address tolls.

Lamont says both parties agree that the state needs at least 700-million-dollars a year in revenue to deal with its aging transportation infrastructure.

Lamont says tolls will provide that money, with 40 percent coming from out of state drivers.

House legislators say they are confident that they will be able to approve a passage although none of them were able to offer specifics.
