Lawmakers, Lamont officials to meet to finish tolling bill


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Democratic state legislators and members of Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont’s administration met privately on Tuesday to try and finalize the details of a transportation bill that includes bridge tolls for big trucks.

Senate President Martin Looney of New Haven said lawmakers are still hoping to have a draft of a bill ready within the next couple of days.

He said the Democrats intend to try to schedule a public hearing on the issue and a vote before the General Assembly convenes its regular session on Feb. 5. But no dates have been been set yet.
