Don’t Let State Agency Bureaucrats Decide Your Transportation Fate

March 13, 2018

Who should make the decisions about whether Connecticut has tolls? Right now, elected officials who answer to you are the decision makers.

Bill 5393 would create a CT Transportation Authority, which would make all the decisions about transportation needs in our state.


If Bill 5393 passes, the legislature would sell out its decision-making responsibilities to unaccountable, unelected, faceless state government bureaucrats. These state employees would have no accountability to the public.

People say we need tolls to collect money from drivers from out of state. However, one of the Co-chairs of the Transportation Committee acknowledged that tolls would be on 95, 91, and 84, possibly others as well.

To give you an idea what that means for CT drivers, one study suggested 20¢ per mile. At that rate, a trip from Danbury City Hall to the Capitol five days a week would cost commuters $150.60 each week! If that same commuter works 50 weeks out of the year, the cost would be $5,780 a year!

You can help me stop this bill from becoming law!
