Help Me Say “No” to Border Tolls

February 20, 2015

On Wednesday, February 25, state legislators will hold a Public Hearing on a proposal to put up tolls on Connecticut’s borders.

Border tolls would discriminate against north-central Connecticut residents who live near the state line.

Tolls are taxes, and we are overtaxed already!

You can help me say "No" to Border Tolls.

Here’s how:

1) Send an email in opposition to this proposal as soon as you can to the legislature’s Transportation Committee at TRAtestimony@cga.ct.gov . The email can be as brief as you like. Include your name and town.
2) Copy me on the email at John.A.Kissel@cga.ct.gov .
3) In the email’s subject line, put "House Bill 6818". That’s the border toll bill’s number.
4) Share this information with anyone you know who is opposed to the idea of border tolls.

I will be testifying against House Bill 6818 in person. Wednesday’s hearing begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford and should last all day. Please contact me at 860 240-0531 with any questions about testifying.

Thank you in advance for your efforts in helping me to defeat this proposal!
