Footnote: “People who support tolls almost always cite the out-of-staters we could make pay. As I said in the video, according to the DOT the maximum out of state traffic on our limited access highways is 25% (they estimate it at 20 to 25%). I happened to read an analysis by DRS which says that 24.1% of the sales tax is paid by people and businesses from out of state–as is 22.7% of the property tax, 21.7% of the excise tax, 28.5% of the gross earnings tax… In other words, tolls don’t bring in out of state income at a higher rate than most other taxes. The difference is, when you stand in line at Macy’s, the person ahead of you doesn’t have a tag on his back telling you where he’s from.”
Conclusion: Tolls are not a solution to what is wrong with CT

“We all know the issues at hand facing us as taxpayers — rising taxes, heavy debt, education and crime, and the harder it has become to sell one’s home. Those are all impacting us as taxpayers. There are solutions to these problems — holding down spending, reviewing all purchase orders … consolidation through attrition. We need better oversight on capital improvements, making sure that town-owned property such as the Laurel View Country Club are generating revenue for the town and that they don’t sit idle,It won’t be easy, but with your help and the help of the Legislative Council we can lower our debt, make our neighborhoods safer. … Together we can get it done.”
