The first bill to deal with electronic tolls was introduced Jan. 16 in the Connecticut General Assembly by freshman Democratic Sen. Alexandra Bergstein of Greenwich. The one-page bill, Proposed Bill No. 102, would require:
- The establishment of electronic tolls on major highways.
- Fees on a per-mile basis to be comparable to surrounding states;
- Proceeds of tolls to be deposited in the Special Transportation Fund, some portion of which would be diverted to a newly created state infrastructure bank.
