The legislature’s Transportation Committee on Wednesday (March 6) will hold a public hearing on two different bills that would bring highway tolls back to Connecticut.
The first bill (H.B. 7280) is from legislative Democrats, and the second (H.B. 7202) is from Gov. Ned Lamont.
Late last year, a well-publicized study on highway tolling indicated Connecticut residents could see as many as 82 toll gantries placed on highways throughout the state. Gov. Lamont, through his two-year budget proposal, has proposed 53 toll gantries.

On Friday, March 1st, the Education Committee will be holding a public hearing on several bills including proposals to force the regionalization of public schools.
Senate Bill 738 would regionalize schools based on the state’s Probate Court Districts.
Senate Bill 457 would require any school district with a student population of fewer than two thousand students to join a new or an existing regional school district.
I strongly oppose both proposals. If you want to express your thoughts about these two bills, you can have your voice heard by submitting written testimony to the committee or you can testify in person.
