The Move CT Forward coalition appreciates the work and effort that was done in the Connecticut General Assembly to turn a transportation funding solution into a transportation funding reality. This legislative action will help get transportation improvement projects back up and running, immediately. This is a great and sorely needed first step.
This action by our legislators means we can get back to work on making our roads and bridges safer for the people of Connecticut.
Connecticut’s infrastructure is crumbling and the Special Transportation Fund (STF) was running dry – $4.3 billion in transportation projects were scheduled to be suspended. Putting car sales tax funding into infrastructure improvements is a practical and smart decision. These funds are meant to provide the kind of improvements and safety enhancements that Connecticut’s infrastructure needs.
