Path of unpopular toll proposal maps out opposition

Excerpt from Republican American.

Joseph Sculley, the president of the Motor Transport Association of Connecticut, agreed that some legislators representing cities and towns along the proposed toll roads are wary of the political repercussions of supporting tolls.

“Definitely, there are people who are afraid of tolls, for lack of a better word, because of the districts they represent, but I also think it is just a statewide issue,” he said.

Sculley said even legislators representing rural districts far removed from the targeted highways understand tolls will end up costing their constituents more one way or another.

“I haven’t heard anyone saying whether directly or indirectly that they are OK with tolls because it doesn’t hit their district. I know of districts that would not be hit, and their legislators are still opposed,” he said.
