'This Is How I Save My Life' Excerpt From Amy B. Scher
Tolls vote could potentially go to special sessionHARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - A vote on tolls in Connecticut could soon happen. However, Speaker of the House Rep. Joe Aresimowicz, a Democrat, said he's not opposed to voting on the proposal in a special session. The current legislative session ends on June 5. However, State Sen. Cathy Osten, another Democrat, told Channel 3 that a vote could happen this week. Lawmakers have had many special sessions, a lot of times it's because they're still hammering out a budget. When it comes to tolls, Republicans say if Democrats don't have the votes, they should drop it. "If we don't finish it after we have put in our best efforts and the budget is done, I wouldn't be opposed to a special session," Aresimowicz said. Democratic leaders are now talking about a possible special session to vote on tolls. "Don't envision a special session, when we are in all the time. What it means we will have leaders and transportation chairs of the committees would be up here," said Democratic State Rep. Matt Ritter. This comes after hundreds of people <a href="https://www.wfsb.com/news/governor-lamont-and-other-lawmakers-talk-tolls-on-face-the/article_72905dae-7aa4-11e9-be62-53a78680e1b7.html" target="_blank">protested outside the state capitol</a> over the weekend. "People are aggravated, people are fed up with this issue," said Patrick Sasser, No Tolls CT founder. Saturday, demonstrators tried to send a message to Democratic lawmakers. Many called the plan something state residents can't afford. "We can’t afford more taxes and that’s really what tolls are, it’s another tax," Sasser said. The prospect of tolls has lawmakers split. Republicans continue to fight against the proposal, which would put electronic tolls on interstates 84, 91, 95 and Route 15. "There are alternatives, they’re just lazy and beholden to people that are not the people in this group and the people who work hard every day," said Rep. Themis Klarides, Republican minority leader. However, Gov. Ned Lamont said tolling could bring in $800 million in revenue to help fix the state's crumbling transportation infrastructure. He <a href="https://www.wfsb.com/face-the-state-gov-lamont-answers-questions-about-tolls/video_465bad8d-f82e-532a-bbeb-d06b58c4fe0b.html" target="_blank">appeared on Face the State on Sunday</a>. "Connecticut will only move in a forward direction if we end the gridlock on [I-]95, fix all those broken bridges that are 90 years old, plus, speed up Metro-North," Lamont said. Democrats said the gas tax could drop by a nickel. The number of gantries and their locations are still being negotiated. The earliest drivers could see tolls on state highways is in 2023. The session ends in two and a half weeks, and right now it doesn't appear the governor has the votes for tolls.
