HARTFORD – On Wednesday, March 21st, State Representative Tami Zawistowski (R-61) voted against three proposed bills in the Transportation Committee that would install tolls on Connecticut highways including I-84, I-91, I-95, Rt. 15 and potentially any other limited access highway.
“I am disappointed, but I am not surprised that the committee voted to approve what amounts to a nearly one billion dollar tax increase. Residents have recognized that tolls would have a negative impact on the cost of living and increase traffic on our backroads,” said Rep. Zawistowski. “This session we have seen a clear pattern of targeting middle class and working families with tax increases from the Democrat majority in the legislature and the new administration. Each of these proposals would put tolls on I-91 and I-84 directly impacting commuters, businesses and families across north-central Connecticut.”

I want you to know that I remain opposed to the installation of tolls in Connecticut. Residents and employers simply can’t afford it— especially when combined with the numerous tax hikes being proposed by Governor Lamont and the legislature’s Democrat majority. Yes, they’re…
