Every day, we depend on large semi-trucks to deliver the goods and products we use, including necessary items like food, medications, and building supplies.
Companies that deliver goods by truck will be forced to pass along the increased operational costs that come from having trucks and drivers sitting idle while trucks charge for 8-10 hours. Inflation already has Connecticut residents struggling to make ends meet, and the latest plan by CT Democrats to ban the sale of new gas-powered vehicles by 2035 will merely exacerbate the struggle.
Can you afford to pay more? While it is inevitable that prices increase from the ban, there continues to be no plan to address this very troubling aspect of new government control.
The legislature’s Regulations Review Committee, of which I am a member, will be taking up this issue on November 28th. I encourage you to contact Democrats who serve on the Committee, and urge them to disapprove the ban, sending the matter to the full legislature for debate and vote.
