Fasano Sets the Record Straight on “Prioritize Progress” Proposal

Hartford – Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano released the following in response to statements made by Governor Dannel P. Malloy criticizing the Republican “Prioritize Progress” Transportation plan for spending what the governor identified as only $37 billion on transportation.

“The Republican ‘Prioritize Progress’ plan would dedicate $71 billion to transportation over the next 30 years. This includes $39.6 billion in state bond allocations. Just like the governor’s own transportation plan, we also include a federal match that supports needed upgrades. Our plan would give the state more than enough money to cover the $66 billion worth of needed upgrades identified by the governor’s own Transportation Finance Panel – all without raising taxes or implementing tolls.”
