Prioritize Progress is a transportation funding plan that works within current state resources to provide $65 billion for transportation infrastructure projects over the next 30 years. It relies on NO tolls and NO tax increases. It guarantees a steady, predictable flow of money for transportation infrastructure.
How it works:
Fully implemented, it operates within CT’s new bond cap, borrowing no more than allowed under the cap. It protects bonding for core needs such as school construction and clean water, at the same time it reduces bonding for excessive wants and prioritizes transportation investments. Instead of using additional bonding for pet projects and political handouts, this plan requires that all bonding above and beyond the state’s basic investment needs must go toward transportation infrastructure projects.
