CT Toll Bill Pulled, Despite House Approval of Lockbox Resolution

Hartford Courant reports, “With a razor-thin margin on a highly controversial issue, the state House of Representatives debated passionately Tuesday [June 6] over whether to reinstall tolls on Connecticut highways for the first time in more than 30 years. But without the necessary support on an emotional issue, the House suspended the debate after [90 minutes] without a formal vote — effectively dropping the issue for now.” The article adds that the debate followed House approval, by a vote of 101 to 50, of a constitutional lockbox that would prevent any transportation money from being spent for any other purposes. . . .”
