Lamont Releases Toll Bill, Calls For Special Session

HARTFORD, CT — It’s official. Gov. Ned Lamont and Democratic legislative leaders have decided to save highway tolls for a special session and focus their energy on getting a budget vote scheduled before the end of the week.

“I’ve said time and time again that the most important work we can do is to stabilize our state’s economy and give businesses the confidence to stay and grow or relocate here,” Lamont said. “Passing a fiscally responsible budget early is the first part of that equation. Doing so will allow mayors and first selectmen to know — for certain — what their budgets will look like for the next biennium and allow them to plan accordingly.”

Lamont and legislative leaders have been unable to come up with the Democratic votes in the House and the Senate needed to pass tolls before adjournment on June 5.

No Republican lawmakers are planning to vote in favor of tolls.
