Furious agreement doesn’t generally spark protest rallies, but the hundreds of residents that turned out at a series of anti-toll gatherings Saturday across the state have something in common with Gov. Ned Lamont — Connecticut’s infrastructure needs massive investments.
“Everybody agrees our infrastructure needs investment, where we differ is on the path to investing,” said state Rep. Laura Devlin (D-134th). Devlin, who represents part of Trumbull in Hartford, is the ranking member of the General Assembly’s Transportation Committee and has been one of the most prominent voices against proposals to place tolls on state highways. Devlin was one of a handful of legislators to attend Saturday’s rallies, organized by the group NoTollsCT. The group is planning future rallies throughout the month.
