The GOP Transportation Plan
Our roads and bridges – not to mention, our entire transportation system – are in dire need of funding.
The state’s Special Transportation Fund is just years from insolvency and we can only fund repair projects, not improvements.
Republicans around the state are promoting a plan that will destroy the state’s finances for future generations.
Republicans have proposed a plan to borrow $750 million EACH YEAR. It will mean massive tax increases on future generations.
Making matters even worse, the Republican credit-card plan would cause Connecticut’s bond rating to plummet making every transportation project more expensive to finance.
This is not an investment in transportation. It’s a fiscally reckless plan to drive Connecticut off the road.
