As Connecticut contemplates how it could benefit from President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, Gov. Ned Lamont said Thursday he thinks the money should be spent on a handful of large-scale projects that would transform the state rather than a lot of small ones.
“I have 169 towns. I don’t want 169 earmarks. I don’t want this money to be spread around like peanut butter,” Lamont said Thursday on a webinar with The Washington Post. “I want to have five or six really important, transformative things that we do, starting with our transportation infrastructure, starting with our kids, starting with free day care to allow women to get back into the workforce.”
