CT GOP leader says he doubts toll can can pass the legislature

The Republican leader of the Connecticut Senate said Monday he doubts a transportation bill that includes tolls can be passed in the General Assembly, despite optimism expressed by Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont.

Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano, of North Haven, told reporters that tolls have been “talked about forever” at the state Capitol, and a bill still isn’t ready for a vote. Lamont and supportive legislative Democrats are hoping to finally pass a transportation plan with truck-only bridge tolls before the General Assembly convenes its regular session on Feb. 5.
