As CT Tolling Debate Continues, Lawmaker Says Tolls Would Be “Akin to Another Tax”

WTNH reports, “Bringing tolls back along some highways in our state has been an ongoing conversation here in Connecticut. The wheels are essentially in motion to do just that. This topic will be up for discussion [today, May 10] at the Capitol.” posts a column by State Rep. John Frey (R-111) who is skeptical of highway tolling, especially in the absence of a constitutional lockbox provision. Frey writes, “Tolls would be akin to another tax, yes, and an added inconvenience for drivers here, as well.”
