Connecticut: Stamford reps committee seeks to send message to Hartford–No tolls

A two-and-a-half hour debate among city lawmakers about whether the state should install highway tolls provides a hint of what is to come in Hartford: conflicting facts; incomplete information; anger over another tax vs. practicality over how to fix aging infrastructure and ease traffic congestion.

Members of the Board of Representatives’ Transportation Committee Thursday night voted 6-0, with one abstention, to recommend that the full board pass a resolution urging the state Legislature to abandon a plan to install tolls.
