Electronic driving taxes (a.k.a. "tolls") are a bad idea for numerous reasons. The push for tolls in Connecticut is based on the false premise that a new revenue source is needed. The Special Transportation Fund (STF) needs to be returned to its original purpose of only funding upkeep of our roads and bridges.
Gov. Ned Lamont's administration has become a master in the art of the “float,” publicizing a suggested new policy and then waiting to see public reaction before taking a firm position. Most of the time Lamont does not take a hard position, but he implies that his proposal is a positive one. It all comes across as being indecisive and, I believe, most of us see it as an abdication of leadership.
