The proposal in question would leave an estimated $91 million in revenue from tax applied to new car sales in the general fund of the Connecticut budget, instead of being moved over to the Special Transportation Fund, which was included in the most recent state budget, supported by both Democrats and Republicans. “We don’t have an immediate solvency issue in the Special Transportation Fund if we make strategic decisions now to begin to implement this plan so there are revenues in place before an insolvency occurs,” McCaw said, alluding to the governor’s proposal to install tolls on state highways in some form, either for trucks or for all vehicles.
