HARTFORD – Last night, Governor Malloy announced he will be imposing his power of executive order to request the Department of Transportation conduct a $10 million dollar feasibility study for the purpose of implementing electronic tolls.
In his statement, Gov. Malloy said “During this past legislative session, we heard time and again from legislators that they wished for more information regarding electronic tolling, including specific recommendations with respect to its possible implementation.”
“The Democrats had multiple opportunities during the legislative session to bring one of the many toll-related bills to the floor of the House for a vote and/or discussion, the truth is, they not only didn’t have the support within their own caucus but the people that they are elected to represent didn’t want them either,” Rep. Green said. “Governor Malloy using his executive order to bypass the legislature and people of Connecticut just five months before he leaves office is beyond unacceptable and our residents deserve better.”
