This Wednesday, March 6th, two bills that call for tolls throughout Connecticut will get a public hearing in the Transportation Committee.
The legislative Democrats’ plan doesn’t put a number on how many tolls it will be but Governor Ned Lamont and a report from the Department of Transportation are suggesting between 50 and 82 tolls.
I am opposed to tolls throughout Connecticut and need your help to stop them.
Please submit written testimony (PDF document) via email by sending it to TRAtestimony@cga.ct.gov. Be sure to include the bill numbers in the subject line (H.B. 7280 and H.B. 7202) is and copy me on the email – Jason.Perillo@housegop.ct.gov.
If you want to testify at the Capitol here is the information:
The hearing begins at 11 a.m. in room 1E of the Legislative Office Building (LOB.) Public speaker order will be determined by a lottery system. Lottery numbers will be drawn from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in Room 2401 of the LOB. Speakers arriving after the completion of the lottery will have their names placed at the end of the speaker list. Please submit 55 copies of written testimony to the Committee staff at 7:30 a.m. in Room 2401 of the LOB. Testimony received after the designated time will not be distributed until after the hearing.
