Connecticut considering highway tolls

The Connecticut legislature is expected to vote on legislation that would add electronic tolls on state highways along I-95, I-84, I-91 and Route 15.

If approved, the corporate leaders support the tolls, saying they are needed to fund significant repairs to the state’s aging roads and bridges, according to The Hartford Courant. Supporters contend that 40 percent of the estimated $800 million in annual toll revenue would come from out-of-state drivers.

The proposed legislation provides a discount for low-income residents.
