MILFORD – State Reps. Charles Ferraro and Kathy Kennedy held office hours on Wednesday night at the Milford Library, where residents were able to ask questions about issues impacting the state.

The hour question and answer style office hour was dominated by the topic of re-instituting tolls. The lawmakers explained that Democrats have proposed a bill that would call for tolling everyone and an additional bill to creating Transportation Authority.

Last year, the Department of Transportation conducted a study and recommended to the state that 82 tolls be placed on all major highways including I-95, I-91, Route 15, and Route 8.

Rep. Ferraro said, “I think placing tolls throughout the state is not the answer. We can’t just put tolls on the border and placing them throughout the state would mean Connecticut residents would pay nearly 70 percent of the tolls. Tolls would just be another tax on Connecticut residents; we need to look at where we can save money.”
