Statement by Senator Steve Cassano on the Transportation Committee Passage of Tolls

“We need to be honest about the situation our state is in,” said Senator Steve Cassano. “Nobody likes tolls, but the reality is we cannot sit by and continue to allow our infrastructure to deteriorate because that threatens the safety of our families, neighbors, and friends. We have over 300 deficient bridges in Connecticut and we don’t want another tragedy like the Mianus River Bridge collapse. Tolls will have significant discounts for Connecticut drivers and frequent commuters. They also will let us finally charge out-of-state drivers who are getting a free ride. Connecticut is the gateway to New England and these drivers will no longer stick us with the bill – 40% of toll revenue will come from out-of-state drivers.”
