A legislative committee voted to move forward with a plan to bring highway tolls back to Connecticut. Sort of.
The Finance Revenue, and Bonding Committee passed the proposal with a 37-15 vote Thursday. But here's the catch, those tolls would only go up on a stretch of Route 11 in southeastern Connecticut.
Lawmakers say the tolls would help fund the stalled project that would extend Route 11 from Salem to I-95. It's a project that's been on and off again for the past 30 years.
Critics are worried that if it passes it would open the door for tolls on other highways.
