HARTFORD- State Representatives Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty announced on Friday that they sent an official letter to Governor Dan Malloy and members of the Bond Commission asking them to remove an item on the bond agenda to bond $10 million to study tolls.
The Special State Bonding Commission is scheduled to meet at 10:30 a.m. next Wednesday, July 25th to approve the toll funding request submitted by Governor Malloy. As chairman of the commission, Gov. Malloy has the discretion to determine which items are included in the bonding meeting.
In the joint letter, Reps. Perillo and McGorty said, “The legislature made it clear in the 2018 session that we would not be moving forward with plans to study or place tolls throughout Connecticut. Governor Malloy should not sidestep the legislature. If the Bond Commission moves this item forward, we believe it will be an insult to lawmakers and Connecticut taxpayers.”
