CT Senate GOP Statement on MA Border Tolls Proposal

May 22, 2024

Sen. Republican Leader Stephen Harding, Sen. Henri Martin, Ranking Senator on the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee, Sen. John A. Kissel (R-Enfield), Sen. Lisa Seminara (R-Avon) and Sen. Jeff Gordon (R-Woodstock) issued the following statement about Massachusetts officials considering putting up border tolls.

“Earlier this month, Gov. Lamont was asked if he would be re-introducing tolls in Connecticut. His response was ‘forget it.’ We urge him to also tell Massachusetts to forget this bad border tolls idea. It will serve as a tax on Connecticut residents, especially on those who live near the Massachusetts border and who work in Massachusetts. Things are expensive enough for hard-working people and their families. They do not want tolls.”
