Connecticut Toll Advocates Rally at State Capitol

Connecticut Post reports, “After months of anti-toll protests and objections to various iterations of Gov. Ned Lamont’s transportation proposal, a group of ‘pro-toll’ advocates showed up [yesterday] at the state Capitol to lend the governor some support. The group of about 20 people, mostly from Fairfield County, gathered outside the Legislative Office Building meeting room to greet Lamont before his post-Bond Commission press conference.”

WFSB also covers this story.

Republican American notes that some Connecticut municipalities are undergoing “financial strain” because they have not yet received state grants they use to pay for snow removal. The newspaper attributes the delay to Governor Ned Lamont’s decision to postpone the issuance of state transportation bonds pending legislative review of his controversial infrastructure funding plan.
