Alert – Toll Public Hearing – Friday, Jan, 31st

Posted on January 29, 2020 by admin

Dear Neighbors,

A public hearing will be held on the Governor’s new draft truck-only toll proposal this Friday, January 31st at 1:00 p.m. in Room 1E of the Legislative Office Building. I oppose this proposal.

Public speaker order will be determined by a lottery system. Lottery numbers will be drawn from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Room 2300 of the LOB. If you can’t make it to the Legislative Office Building, you can email written testimony in Word or PDF format to Please copy me on the email – – or let me know if you plan on testifying in person.

Here are some highlights of the current draft proposal, all of which I oppose.

  • The bill contains a loophole to allow for cars to be tolled in two years
  • Gives more authority to a Transportation Policy Council to decide on rate increases
  • 12 truck-only tolls will be placed at the following locations
    • I-84 in Newtown and Southbury
