HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – The Republican leader of the Connecticut Senate says he doubts there’s enough support in the General Assembly to pass a transportation bill that includes tolls.
Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano, of North Haven, told reporters Monday that tolls have been talked about forever at the state Capitol, and a bill still isn’t ready for a vote. He’s urging the majority Democrats to consider the GOP’s plan, which doesn’t include tolls.
Gov. Ned Lamont and supportive legislative Democrats are hoping to finally pass a transportation plan with truck-only bridge tolls before the Legislature convenes its regular session on Feb. 5.
