CT House Speaker Blames GOP for Stalled Debate on Tolling Bill

WSHU reports, “Connecticut House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, a Berlin Democrat, is blaming the Republican minority for his failure [last] week to have the House debate a bill that could lead to the return of tolls on Connecticut’s highways. Aresimowicz says the return of tolls is needed to avoid the state’s Special Transportation Fund running out of money by 2020. But he had to withdraw the bill from debate twice this week . . . because he could not get any support from the Republican caucus.”
