HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Republican lawmakers in Connecticut have apparently come up with a plan to help pay for Gov. Dannel Malloy’s $100 billion transportation overhaul.
State Sen. Toni Boucher, R-Wilton, the ranking member of the Transportation Committee said Republicans in Hartford have come up with a plan that would redirect bonding, freeing up an extra $1 billion a year.
“I feel very, very certain we can pay for it out of our current bonding capacity,” Boucher told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau. “All we need is for the governor and the administration to open the door, sit down and take these ideas seriously.”
