Tolls, not more borrowing, is the transportation solution

Sometimes wishing for ‘the good ole days’ requires revisionist history, but I do remember when Connecticut was a state that reflected issues that we all face in a bipartisan fashion. Solutions were viewed with the aim of ensuring a quality of life for all of its citizens. Party lines were not the determinant of how our legislators voted. They were leaders! The dire state of our infrastructure: roads, bridges, transportation is one arena that demands a bipartisan solution.
