Lamont explains calls for special session on tolls

News

Governor Ned Lamont spoke on Wednesday about why he is calling for a special session on tolls.

Gov. Lamont said he didn’t want lawmakers to use the excuse that they didn’t have enough information to pass a sensible transportation bill.

“I want them to decide. I hope they decide to get this state moving again, which is a reliable, predictable revenue stream to do it. And if they want to come back and do a little borrowing, and some tolling, gas, something that gets this going… But its gotta be real. And I haven’t heard anyone come up to a real solution to what I proposed,” he explained.
