CT2030 plan will help too little and cost too much

Thank your lucky stars the CT 2030 plan hasn’t passed. It needs significant revision and a sharp eye placed on cost control. The rail projects that are included are severely overpriced. As many American leaders continue to shortchange rail, it is tempting to charge ahead with any plan, but the legislature must resist. CT 2030 will, if approved in its current form and entrusted to CTDOT’s current managers, send the state back into the same debt hole out of which it has begun to climb, for crumbs’ worth of transit improvements.
