State lawmakers are unlikely to act this year on legislation paving the way for implementing tolls on major Connecticut highways.
House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz (D-Berlin) this week postponed a scheduled vote, saying he could not guarantee any debate on the issue before the legislative session ends May 9.
The legislation directs the Department of Transportation to develop a detailed plan for installing tolls on Interstates 84, 91, 95, and the Wilbur Cross and Merritt parkways.
The DOT would determine how and where tolls will be installed on those highways, and set significant discount rates for Connecticut residents.
That legislation would have ratified the tolling plan if the General Assembly failed to act on it within 30 days.
