To the Editor:
Connecticut’s legislature will soon meet in a special session. If tolls are not on the agenda to fund transportation infrastructure, Nutmeggers should be upset. The suggested alternative — bonding (borrowing) — will negatively impact all residents, drivers or not, for decades. The increased debt will mean higher taxes, as well as cutbacks on state funding for quality-of-life projects to deliver clean water, promote our economy and build schools and senior housing. The borrowing will come with higher interest rates — and still leave the state’s lockbox-protected Special Transportation Fund headed for insolvency.
