Protesters Hold Anti-Tolls Rally in Hartford

Protesters gathered outside of the State Capitol in Hartford on Saturday to voice their opinions about Governor Ned Lamont's plan to bring back tolls.

"No tolls! No tolls! No tolls!" protesters could he heard shouting.

Protesters said tolls would be another "unfair tax."

Democratic lawmakers are working on finalizing a toll bill while Republicans unveiled a five step plan. The plan, in part, would borrow millions of dollars to be used specifically for transportation projects.

Governor Lamont argues that the cost of tolls would be shared with out of state drivers and that the Republican plan has "excessive borrowing."
