Godfrey doubts Lamont has votes for commercial truck tolls plan

From Patch – Brookfield, Conn.

State Rep. Bob Godfrey (D-110) says he doesn’t think that Gov. Ned Lamont (D-Greenwich) has enough votes to get his plan for tolls on commercial trucks approved at a January special session because of his inconsistency on funding transportation infrastructure improvements and the threat that the plan will be ruled unconstitutional.

“My colleagues are uncomfortable because every time you turn around it’s a different proposal,” said Godfrey of Danbury, who was initially elected to the state House in 1988 and currently serves as deputy speaker pro tempore.

Lamont told Patch.com in a February 2018 phone interview – about five weeks after formally entering the gubernatorial race – that he supported a tolls plan for all vehicles. Then during the primary and general election campaigns, he said that he would support tolls only for commercial trucks.
