CT House Postpones Vote to Allow Electronic Tolling on Highways as Backers Scramble to Find More Votes

Hartford Courant reports, “The state House of Representatives postponed a vote on controversial tolls Wednesday night [May 31] due to a lack of support, but leaders are changing the bill in an attempt to win more votes. The original bill would have authorized the state Department of Transportation to install electronic tolls on Connecticut’s highways, but the updated plan will be a two-step process with two votes by the legislature, lawmakers said.”

Two toll-specific measures appear on today’s House calendar (as of 8:15 am EDST), substitute bills for HB 6058 and HB 7317.
