From Ken Dixon, CT Post:
The clock will run out on the General Assembly in a couple weeks without a deal on highway tolls, sending the issue into legislative overtime.
House majority leaders on Tuesday said they have enough support for a plan with 50 toll gantries and discounts for state residents, but admitted there doesn’t seem to be a unified agreement with Senate Democrats and Gov. Ned Lamont. Lamont released a working draft of the legislation on Tuesday afternoon, following discussions with legislative leaders.
So after the current session ends June 5, the General Assembly will slip into special session to hammer out toll-related legislation.
“The Senate Democratic caucus remains committed to developing a responsible, long-term plan to invest in Connecticut’s transportation infrastructure and broad-based economic development,” Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney said Tuesday afternoon. “I am hopeful that a special session will allow for us to find a bipartisan solution to solving Connecticut’s transportation infrastructure problems and thereby promote economic development.”
