AP: Connecticut Republican Lawmakers Question Whether Tolls Will Generate Any Revenue

Associated Press reports, “Republican senators raised concerns Wednesday [May 10] about proposed highway tolls, saying there’s no evidence they will generate revenue for the state’s transportation needs. Senate GOP leader Len Fasano explained how Connecticut can only pursue so-called congestion mitigation tolls, a way to manage traffic flows by charging a higher fee during the busiest drive times. The state cannot reinstate tolls on the state border without putting federal funding at risk. . . .”
