Gov. Ned Lamont vowed Thursday to call the state legislators back to vote on highway tolls, while House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz gave tolls a 50-50 chance for passage. An agreement between Democrats has proved elusive, let alone an overarching bipartisan deal given the continued Republican opposition to tolls and insistence on the GOP alternative plan that relies on state bonding and matching federal funds. He said Republicans and Democrats agree the state needs to spend $700 million to $800 million a year to move beyond just maintaining transportation infrastructure and systems to fixing the underlying problems and building out.
