Public Transit, Road And Bridge Projects Could Suffer Cuts

The Special Transportation Fund, which finances the state’s transportation system, will be in deficit by fiscal year 2019 unless the state takes action. Gov. Dannel Malloy has suspended $4.3 billion in projects, affecting every town in the state. On Jan. 31, Malloy proposed additional revenues for the STF so that critical state and municipal projects across Connecticut could continue. Those proposals include an increase to the gas tax, the imposition of a tire fee, adjustments to the car sales tax, and statewide tolling to begin in fiscal year 2023.
