A local lawmaker is speaking out against the idea of tolling in Connecticut. Danbury Representative Michael Ferguson says the proposal would severely harm area businesses and commuters. He says many working families are already at their limit and would make living in this state much more expensive.
Ferguson says the Governor lacks a concrete vision and plan for transportation. While there is a state-wide list of projects, some of which are underway, he says there is no real priority list.
Ferguson, a member of the Transportation Committee, doesn't believe new infrastructure, like the New Haven to Springfield Rail Line, should be built before existing rail, highway and bridges are repaired and upgraded.
